We consider conditional photonic nonGaussian state preparation using multimode Gaussian states and photonnumberresolving detectors in the presence of photon loss. While simulation of such state preparation is often computationally challenging, we show that obtaining the required multimode Gaussian state Fock matrix

We report the first demonstrations of both quadrature squeezed vacuum and photon number difference squeezing generated in an integrated nanophotonic device. Squeezed light is generated via strongly driven spontaneous fourwave mixing below threshold in silicon nitride microring resonators.

We introduce a quantum approximate optimization algorithm (QAOA) for continuous optimization. The algorithm is based on the dynamics of a quantum system moving in an energy potential which encodes the objective function. By approximating the dynamics at finite time steps, the algorithm can be expressed as alternating evolution under…

Molecular Docking with Gaussian Boson Sampling
February 2019
Gaussian Boson Samplers are photonic quantum devices with the potential to perform tasks that are intractable for classical systems. As with other nearterm quantum technologies, an outstanding challenge is to identify specific problems of practical interest where these quantum devices can prove useful.

Conversion of Gaussian states to nonGaussian states using photonnumberresolving detectors
February 2019
Generation of high fidelity photonic nonGaussian states is a crucial ingredient for universal quantum computation using continousvariable platforms, yet it remains a challenge to do so efficiently.

We present a detailed analytic framework for studying multimode nonGaussian states that are conditionally generated when few modes of a multimode Gaussian state are subject to photonnumberresolving detectors.

Nonlinear coupling of linearly uncoupled resonators
January 2019
We demonstrate a system composed of two resonators that are coupled solely through a nonlinear interaction, and where the linear properties of each resonator can be controlled locally.

Linear multiport photonic interferometers: loss analysis of temporallyencoded architectures
December 2018
Implementing spatiallyencoded universal linear multiport interferometers on integrated photonic platforms with high controllability becomes increasingly difficult as the number of modes increases.

Exact gate decompositions for photonic quantum computing
November 2018
We propose a method for decomposing continuousvariable operations into a universal gate set, without the use of any approximations. We fully characterize a set of transformations admitting exact decompositions and describe a process for obtaining them systematically.
