Concept illustration depicting an integrated photonic quantum processor: Laser light coupled into the channels interacts with the rings (foreground) to create pairs of entangled photons (red). The entangled photons split and travel throughout the photonic circuit (background), which controls effective interactions between them, enabling optical quantum computations.
