Photonic cluster states are a resource for quantum computation based solely on single-photon measurements. We use semiconductor quantum dots to deterministically generate long strings of polarization-entangled photons in a cluster state by periodic timed excitation of a precessing matter qubit. In each period, an entangled photon is added to the cluster… (More)
We experimentally demonstrate deterministic optical writing of a quantum dot-confined dark exciton, in a pure quantum state using one optical pulse. We then control the spin state of this long-lived exciton using picosecond optical pulses.
