AI Rudolph's work has been the driver of considerable experimental progress across several fields. In particular, most linear optical experiments focused at generating larger entanglement from smaller amounts use some variant of his ‘fusion gate’ ideas. His work on a quantum algorithm for Q-sampling is now a standard subroutine in many new quantum algorithms, such as those for quantum chemistry simulations, solving linear equations or simulating quantum field theories.
As an expert in the theory of quantum thermodynamics, AI Rudolph will be invaluable in advising on new experiments that probe this regime.
AI Rudolph has pioneered work on linear optics and cluster states, as resources for information processing with photonic circuits. He will bring expertise in these areas to the designer quantum materials program, exploring the connections to quantum simulators and to the applications of exotic states of quantum matter to quantum technologies.
