"Deterministic Generation of a Cluster State of Polarization Entangled Photons and more…"

Liron Gantz, Sr. Electro Optic Engineer at Mellanox Technologies

September 26th (Monday), 3:30pm
Engineering Science Building (ESB) Rm 2001

The first part of my talk will be devoted for the recent work performed in prof. David Gershoni’s research group at the Technion, Israel institute of technology. In this research work we successfully generated a cluster state of entangled photons [1]. Photonic cluster states are a resource for quantum computation based solely on single photon measurements [2]. These measurements-based schemes are among the most fault-tolerant quantum computing architectures [3]. We used a single semiconductor quantum dot to deterministically generate long strings of polarization entangled photons, by periodic timed excitation of a precessing matter qubit, in this case the confined dark exciton [4]. Our prototype device can produce strings of hundreds photons in which the entanglement persists over 5 sequential photons.

In the second part of my talk, I will give an overview on Mellanox, which is a leading company in the end-to-end Ethernet and InfiniBand intelligent interconnect solutions, service for servers, storage and converge infrastructure. I will focus on current projects and possible future collaboration with academia regarding the future of interconnect.
