Quantum technologies will be able to implement faster algorithms, allow more secure transmission of information, and perform more accurate measurements. For all its theoretical potential, we need a solid experimental platform with which quantum properties can be addressed with ease and precision, whilst simultaneously preserving those fragile nonclassical features. Moreover, the ability to do so even in a hostile environment will be desirable, if not necessary, to facilitate further technology.
Photons are a viable option to probe and exploit quantum phenomena since they do not suffer from thermal coupling with the external world. They also benefit from a range of degrees of freedom onto which quantum states can be prepared, processed and measured with relative simplicity. Given the vast literature which has shown how to tame photons, the aim of our research is now to foster this novel technology to a point where it will realise the promises of the quantum revolution in information processing.
