A method for characterizing coherent-state quantum gates

Abstract : We discuss and implement experimentally a method for characterizing quantum gates operating on superpositions of coherent states. The peculiarity of this encoding of qubits is to work with a non-orthogonal basis, and therefore some technical limitations prevent us from using standard methods, such as process tomography. We adopt a different technique, that relies on some a-priori knowledge about the physics underlying the functioning of the device. A parameter characterizing the global quality of the quantum gate is obtained by \virtually" processing an entangled state.
