Quantum non-demolition measurements: a new resource for making linear logic scalable

Nemoto, Kae; Munro, W.J.; Spiller, T.P.; Beausoleil, R.G.


Keyword(s): quantum information; single photon detection; quantum gates; conditional measurements

Abstract: We discuss a new and novel approach to the problem of creating a photon number resolving detector using the giant Kerr nonlinearities available in electromagnetically induced transparency. Our scheme can implement a photon number quantum non-demolition measurement with high efficiency (>99%) which can distinguish 0, 1 and 2 photons. We then show how it is possible to construct a near deterministic CNOT using several single photons sources, linear optics, photon number resolving quantum non-demolition detectors and feed-forward.
