A time-domain multiplexed measurement-based large-scale optical quantum computer

Akira Furusawa

Department of Applied Physics, School of Engineering, The University of Tokyo

Professor Akira Furusawa received his MS Degree in applied physics and Ph.D. Degree in physical chemistry from The University of Tokyo, Japan, in 1986, and 1991, respectively. His research interests cover the area of nonlinear optics, quantum optics and quantum information science. Professor Furusawa has authored more than 100 papers in leading technical journals and conferences, which include the first realizations of continuous-variable quantum teleportation. He received various prizes and awards including the Ryogo Kubo Memorial Award in 2006, the International Quantum Communication Award in 2008, and the Medal with Purple Ribbon in 2016.


I will explain the methodology of a time-domain multiplexed measurement-based optical quantum computer.    There are two types of qubits, stationary and flying qubits. Stationary qubits are two-level systems in electronic,... [ view full abstract ]
