Hybrid Quantum Teleportation

We demonstrated deterministic quantum teleportation of photonic qubits for the first time. That is, photonic qubits are always teleported in each attempt, in contrary to the former probabilistic scheme.

Optical generation of non-classical states toward universal quantum computation

Based on the continuous wave scheme, we achieved generation of arbitrary superpositions of zero- to three-photon-number states with 80% high-efficiency. In the same scheme we also generated the state required for the cubic phase gate, whose non-classicality has been verified [8].

Loop-based photonic quantum computer

We proposed a new architecture for optical quantum computation which can efficiently perform arbitrarily large-scale quantum computation with minimal optical components.
