Measurement-induced Nonlinearity in Linear Optics

Scheel, Stefan; Nemoto, Kae; Munro, William J.; Knight, Peter L.


Keyword(s): quantum information; generation of nonlinearities; quantum gates; conditional measurements

Abstract: We investigate the generation of nonlinear operators with single photon sources, linear optical elements and appropriate measurements of auxiliary modes. We provide a framework for the construction of useful single-mode and two-mode quantum gates necessary for all-optical quantum information processing. We focus our attention generally on using minimal physical resources while providing a transparent and algorithmic way of constructing these operators. Notes: Stefan Scheel and Peter L.
