Linear equations on a quantum computer

Client:
Walther Group, University of Vienna

Details:
Completed in 2012 but still a favorite, this animation shows an optical set up used by the Walther Lab at the University of Vienna, constructed in order to show an algorithm that solves linear equations on a quantum computer. Laser light depicted as individual qubits of information.
