We report the experimental realization and characterization of one 60-mode copy and of two 30-mode copies of a dual-rail quantum-wire cluster state in the quantum optical frequency comb of a bimodally pumped optical parametric oscillator. This is the largest entangled system ever created whose subsystems are all available simultaneously. The entanglement proceeds from the coherent concatenation of a multitude of Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen pairs by a single beam splitter, a procedure which is…

Five-partite entanglement generation between two optical frequency combs in a quasi-periodic χ(2) nonlinear optical crystal

We theoretically prove five-partite entanglement can be produced among modes of two simultaneously generated optical frequency combs via second-order nonlinear interaction in a designed periodically

Full multipartite entanglement of frequency-comb Gaussian states.

An analysis is conducted of the multipartite entanglement for Gaussian states generated by the parametric down-conversion of a femtosecond frequency comb and a family of tests is formulated for mode decompositions that extends beyond the traditional bipartition analyses.

Hypercubic cluster states in the phase-modulated quantum optical frequency comb

We propose and fully analyze the simplest technique to date to generate light-based universal quantum computing resources, namely 2D, 3D and, in general, n-hypercubic cluster states. The technique

Graph state engineering by phase modulation of the quantum optical frequency comb

The quantum optical frequency comb (QOFC) of a single optical parametric oscillator (OPO) is a scalable platform for quantum information as a generator of large size cluster states. We show that the

Fiber-coupled EPR-state generation using a single temporally multiplexed squeezed light source

A prerequisite for universal quantum computation and other large-scale quantum information processors is the careful preparation of quantum states in massive numbers or of massive dimension. For

Multipartite Entanglement of a Two-Separable State.

The consideration of not only theEntanglement of individual mode decompositions, but also of combinations of those, solves the puzzle and exemplifies the importance of studying different categories of multipartite entanglement.

Spatiotemporal graph states from a single optical parametric oscillator

An experimental scheme is proposed for building massively multipartite entangled states using both the spatial and the frequency modes of an optical parametric oscillator. We provide analytical forms

One-way quantum computing with arbitrarily large time-frequency continuous-variable cluster states from a single optical parametric oscillator

A generalized measurement protocol is introduced to enable improved computational performance on this entanglement resource and create a scalable architecture in which a single optical parametric oscillator and simple interferometer entangle into a computationally universal continuous-variable cluster state.

Generation of multiphoton entangled quantum states by means of integrated frequency combs

It is demonstrated that optical integrated Kerr frequency combs can be used to generate several bi- and multiphoton entangled qubits, with direct applications for quantum communication and computation.

Mode-independent entanglement for quantum light

We address the problem of the persistence of entanglement of quantum light under mode transformations, where orthogonal modes define the parties between which quantum correlations can occur. Since
