Paper Abstract

We describe an optical implementation of a CNOT gate in which the control qubit is the polarization of a single photon and the target qubit is the spatial parity of the same photon. The gate is implemented with a polarizationsensitive spatial light modulator. We characterize the operation of the gate using quantum process tomography and the spatial parity is analyzed with a modified Mach-Zehnder interferometer. We also demonstrate the CNOT-gate operation with arbitrary rotation of the target qubit and discuss the possibility of implementing multi-qubit CNOT gates using the same approach.
