Universal measurement-based quantum computation with opto-mechanical systems

Alessandro Ferraro

Queen's University Belfast

Dr. Alessandro Ferraro is a Lecturer in Quantum Information at Queen's University Belfast, where he was appointed in 2013. After being awarded his PhD from the University of Milan in 2005, he was research fellow at the Institute of Photonic Sciences (Barcelona), Autonomous University of Barcelona, and University College London--funding his research via various fellowships, including the Juan De La Cierva and Marie Curie fellowships. Ferraro is an expert in quantum information with continuous variables and quantum optics. His research on more fundamental aspects of quantum correlations has also been recognised of high impact.


Quantum computation over continuous variables using the measurement-based approach has recently attracted much attention. This approach allows to process quantum information provided a suitable entangled state —dubbed... [ view full abstract ]
