We report the creation of an entangled multiphoton quantum superposition by quantum injection of entangled 2-photon states into a parity selective parametric amplifier. The information preserving property of the state transformation suggests for these macrostates the name of large qubits. They are ideal objects for investigating the emergence of the… (More)
We experimentally perform the simulation of open quantum dynamics in single-qudit systems. Using a spatial light modulator as a dissipative optical device, we implement dissipative-dynamical maps onto qudits encoded in the transverse momentum of spontaneous parametric down-converted photon pairs. We show a well-controlled technique to prepare entangled… (More)
In this talk graphic artist and animator Sydney Padua talks about her bestselling graphic novel "The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage". She will also display her 3D animations of how the Analytical Engine would have looked and operated.
