Recognized by the 2005 Physics Nobel Prize to Jan Hall and Ted Hänsch, the optical frequency comb (OFC) has revolutionized precision measurements based on spectroscopy, and optical clocks. The quantum OFC provides an eminently scalable testbed for the implementation of one-way quantum computing, in which measurements effected on a quantum computing “substrate," called a cluster entangled state, are all what’s needed to implement quantum logic. In this talk, I will describe efforts around the globe, and in my group at the University of Virginia, toward implementing universal, fault tolerant quantum computing over the rainbow.
