Paper Abstract

In this paper we discuss the quantum optical element XOR (XOR-gate) on the basis of switching of macroscopic polarization states in Mach-Zehnder interferometer for single-photon pulses. It is shown that the state at the output of the optical system has the Schrodinger cat macroscopic superposition properties in polarization characteristics.
