A simple argument is presented that explicitly shows how to construct an arbitrary quantum gate acting on orbital angular momentum (OAM) of single photons. The scheme can be applied to implement subspace multiplexing, where a single high-dimensional OAM qudit represents effectively a stack of multiple independent lower-dimensional qudits. A special subclass of unitaries composed of single-photon controlled gates is studied in detail and notable examples of the general approach are discussed… 



Universal quantum computation with the orbital angular momentum of a single photon

We prove that a single photon with quantum data encoded in its orbital angular momentum can be manipulated with simple optical elements to provide any desired quantum computation. We will show how to

Arbitrary d -dimensional Pauli X gates of a flying qudit

High-dimensional degrees of freedom of photons can encode more quantum information than their two-dimensional counterparts. While the increased information capacity has advantages in quantum

Quantum multiplexing with the orbital angular momentum of light

The orbital angular momentum (OAM) of photons offers a suitable support to carry the quantum data of multiple users. We present two optical setups that send the information of $n$ quantum

High-dimensional quantum gates using full-field spatial modes of photons

Unitary transformations are the fundamental building blocks of gates and operations in quantum information processing allowing the complete manipulation of quantum systems in a coherent manner. In

Realization of optimized quantum controlled-logic gate based on the orbital angular momentum of light.

An optimized setup to implement quantum controlled-NOT operation using polarization and orbital angular momentum qubits is proposed and experimentally demonstrated, which can work both in classical and quantum single-photon regime.

Scheme for optical implementation of orbital angular momentum beam splitter of a light beam and its application in quantum information processing

Optical beams bearing orbital angular momentum have been recently recognized as potential candidates for realizing D-dimensional quantum systems (qudits). In this paper, we propose an optical scheme

This paper presents an alternative design that uses the orbital angular momentum as a carrier of information and needs only O ( √ d log d ) elements, rendering the path-encoded design inefficient.

Quantum entanglement of angular momentum states with quantum numbers up to 10,010

The results show how complex the structure of entangled photons can be and hint at the large information content a single quantum system is able to carry, and highlight OAM as a promising way to increase the information capacity of a single photon.

Single-photon three-qubit quantum logic using spatial light modulators

An experimental demonstration of three-qubit single-photon, linear, deterministic quantum gates that exploit photon polarization and the two-dimensional spatial-parity-symmetry of the transverse single-Photon field are demonstrated.

Quantum teleportation of multiple degrees of freedom of a single photon

This work uses photon pairs entangled in both degrees of freedom (that is, hyper-entangled) as the quantum channel for teleportation, and develops a method to project and discriminate hyper-ENTangled Bell states by exploiting probabilistic quantum non-demolition measurement, which can be extended to more degrees offreedom.
