Photonic Quantum (Cloud) Computing and Quantum Simulation

Prof. Dr. Philip Walther, University of Vienna

The advantages of the photons makes optical quantum system ideally suited for a variety of applications in quantum information processing. Here I will briefly review photonic quantum computing with a focus on secure quantum cloud computing, where quantum information is securely communicated and computed. Related to this I will discuss new experimental insights into the verification of quantum computer and also review photonic quantum simulation experiments. Based on the utilization of integrated waveguides I will also present resource-efficient intermediate quantum computing utilizing the Bosonic nature of photons as well as new quantum computational concepts that superimpose the order of quantum gates.
