Abstract

Recently, Motes, Gilchrist, Dowling, and Rohde [Phys. Rev. Lett. 113, 120501 (2014).PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.113.120501] presented a scheme for photonic boson sampling using a fiber-loop architecture. Here we show that the same architecture can be modified to implement full, universal linear-optics quantum computing, in various incarnations. The scheme employs two embedded fiber loops, a single push-button photon source, three dynamically controlled beamsplitters, and a single time-resolved photodetector. The architecture has only a single point of interference, and thus may be significantly easier to align than other schemes. The experimental complexity of the scheme is constant, irrespective of the size of the computation, limited only by fiber lengths and their respective loss rates.
