  journal={arXiv: Quantum Physics},
We demonstrate an optical method to engineer optical Schrodinger cat states (SCSs) of large amplitude in the range from 2 to 3 with high fidelity close to 0.99. The approach uses the {\alpha}-representation of the SCSs in infinite Hilbert with base displaced number states characterized by the displacement amplitude {\alpha}. An arbitrary {\alpha}-representation of SCSs enables to manipulate the amplitudes in wider range of parameters that which greatly expands the possibilities for generation…

This work focuses on implementation and optimization of an irreversible analog of the Hadamard gate, which is based on photon subtraction and number and displaced number states of the quantum oscillator are connected with each other through unitary transformation matrix.

Generation of optical coherent-state superpositions by number-resolved photon subtraction from the squeezed vacuum

We have created heralded coherent-state superpositions (CSSs) by subtracting up to three photons from a pulse of squeezed vacuum light. To produce such CSSs at a sufficient rate, we used our…

A scheme for efficient quantum computation with linear optics

It is shown that efficient quantum computation is possible using only beam splitters, phase shifters, single photon sources and photo-detectors and are robust against errors from photon loss and detector inefficiency.
