Abstract

Controlling the flow of light is a fundamental requirement for quantum simulations with light. We have recently introduced two novel direct laser writing methods for the microstructuring of mirrors, which allow us to control the transverse flow of light in a high finesse optical microresonator [1]. In particular, it is possible to capture photons onto periodic lattices sites and to control their tunnelling rate. In future work, this will enable optical simulations of classical spin systems. In particular, we aim at a device that is capable of finding the ground state of spin glass systems, which is a well-know computationally hard problem, faster than any other computer.
