Paper Abstract

Photonic excitations of the electronic and nuclear spin system in a variety of photonic materials are proposed to serve as the foundation of a potential realization of a Photonic Quantum (mechanical) Computer (PQC). Quantum bits (q-bits) for this new class of computational architecture physically manifest themselves as spin states in the media. Spin interaction Hamiltonians are discussed corresponding to various spin interaction topologies. Quantum logics, algebras, and algorithms are discussed as potential PQC applications.
