    • Work for the department

    The current PhD project concerns applying single-photon quantum hardware for quantum simulations. The goal is to use quantum dot spin-photon interfaces for generation of advanced multi-photon entangled cluster states. Small-scale cluster states will be fused together for forming larger entangled states and applied for proof-of-concept quantum simulations of dynamical quantum chemistry problems. Both theoretical modelling of the quantum algorithm and experimental implementation will be part of the project.
