Paper Abstract

Photons are excellent carriers of quantum information; their polarization remains coherent for long times and it is easy to measure and precisely rotate. The fundamental hurdle with photon-based quantum information processing is the lack of direct photon-photon interactions to provide entanglement between pairs of photons. Recent proposals show the ability to build large cluster states from small entangled states using non-deterministic operations, but the generation of deterministic high-fidelity small entangled states remains a challenge. In this talk, we will show how the necessary cluster-state building blocks for large-scale quantum computation can be created from coupled solid-state quantum emitters without the need for any two-qubit gates and regardless of whether the emitters are identical. We provide a recipe for the generation of two-dimensional, ‘cluster-state’ entangled photons that can be carried out with existing experimental capabilities.
