Shadbolt and Maria Rodas Verde and Alberto Peruzzo and Alberto Politi and Anthony Laing and Mirko Lobino and Jonathan C. F. Matthews and Mark G.

Researchers demonstrate a reconfigurable integrated quantum photonic circuit. The device comprises a two-qubit entangling gate, several Hadamard-like gates and eight variable phase shifters. The set-up is used to generate entangled states, violate a Bell-type inequality with a continuum of partially entangled states and demonstrate the generation of arbitrary one-qubit mixed states.
