Optimal modular architectures for universal linear optics

We present modular and optimal architectures for implementing arbitrary discrete unitary transformations on light. These architectures are based on systematically combining smaller M-mode linear optical interferometers together to implement a larger N-mode transformation. The post Optimal modular ar…

Quantum embeddings for machine learning

Quantum classifiers are trainable quantum circuits used as machine learning models. The first part of the circuit implements a quantum feature map that encodes classical inputs into quantum states, embedding the data in a high-dimensional Hilbert space; the second part of the circuit executes a quan…
