We experimentally demonstrate a new method of generating entangled itinerant photons using waveguide quantum electrodynamics. Realizing a fully connected network of quantum processors requires the ability to distribute quantum entanglement. For distant processing nodes, this can be achieved by generating, routing, and capturing spatially entangled itinerant photons. In this work, we demonstrate the deterministic generation of such photons using superconducting transmon qubits that are directly… 

Realizing a deterministic source of multipartite-entangled photonic qubits

This work tomographically reconstructs the entire quantum many-body state for up to N = 4 photonic modes and infer the quantum state for even larger N from process tomography and estimates that localizable entanglement persists over a distance of approximately ten photonic qubits.

Topology-Controlled Nonreciprocal Photon Scattering in a Waveguide

Waveguide quantum electrodynamics with multiple atoms provides an important way to study photon transport. In this work, we study the photon transport in a one-dimensional waveguide coupled to a

This work establishes a resource-efficient (cavityless) alternative to cQED for controlling superconducting qubits by detecting a homodyne fluorescence signal from the cycling transition and implementing a QND readout of the qubit.

Waveguide quantum electrodynamics with superconducting artificial giant atoms

An alternative architecture is used that realizes a giant atom by coupling small atoms to a waveguide at multiple, but well separated, discrete locations, producing tunable atom–waveguide coupling and enabling decoherence-free interactions.

Generating Stable Spin Squeezing by Squeezed-Reservoir Engineering.

This work proposes a scheme to generate stable SS resorting to neither the spin-spin coupling nor the coherent driving on the TLSs, and exhibits the advantages over previous ones in the scaling relation of the SS parameter with the number of the TLS's.

By preparing the source in a superposition state using an excitation pulse, this work achieves deterministic generation of entangled photon pairs, as demonstrated by nonvanishing phase correlations and more generally by joint quantum state tomography of the two itinerant photonic modes.

Deterministic Generation of Arbitrary Photonic States Assisted by Dissipation.

A protocol makes use of decoherence-free subspaces for the atomic emitters with coherent evolution within the DFSs enforced by strong dissipative coupling to the waveguide to generation of many-body entangled states and for the reversible mapping of these states of matter to photonic states of an optical pulse in the wave guide.
