Resumé: By encoding information into the states of quantum systems, one can then process that information by evolving and manipulating the systems according to the laws of quantum mechanics. This opens up vast possibilities for exploiting non-classical behaviours available to quantum systems in order to process information in radically new ways. This in turn can lead to computational speedups, enhanced security, more efficient communication, among many other so-called quantum advantages. This PhD will develop a particular approach to building a quantum computer, using single photon sources, in collaboration between LIP6 and startup Quandela. The main objectives consist of improvements on the state-of-the art in noisy intermediate scale photonic quantum computing, fault-tolerance schemes, and graph and cluster state generation for large-scale quantum computing. Our intention is for these to build on each other and to constitute the main focus for the respective years of the thesis work.
