“Quantum Optics and Quantum Communications using Non-Gaussian States of Light”
Laboratoire Charles Fabry, Institut d’Optique Graduate School, France
During recent years, much progress has been achieved for generating non-Gaussian states of the light, such as Fock states, or optical “Schrödinger’s cat” states, in the microwave but also in the optical domain. Such states can be used for various quantum information protocols, including remote entanglement preparation, or non-deterministic noiseless amplification. Novel stimulating perspectives are opened by the possibility to implement photon-photon interactions, using for instance cold Rydberg atoms in an optical cavity. We will review these recent developments, and discuss open perspectives for quantum information processing and communications.
