The basic experiment for a photonic quantum computer.
Can be achieved in two ways it seems:
Animation of Hong-Ou-Mandel Effect on a silicon like structure by Quantum Light University of Sheffield (2014): www.youtube.com/watch?v=ld2r2IMt4vg No maths, but gives the result clear: the photons are always on the same side.
Video 1. Quantum Computing with Light by Quantum Light University of Sheffield (2015) Source. Animation of in-silicon single photon device with brief description of emitting and receiving elements. Mentions:
Video 2. Quantum Optics - Beam splitter in quantum optics by Alain Aspect (2017) Source. More theoretical approach.
Video 3. Building a Quantum Computer Out of Light by whentheappledrops (2014) Source. Yada yada yada, then at youtu.be/ofg335d3BJ8?t=341 shows optical table and it starts being worth it. Jacques Carolan from the University of Bristol goes through their setup which injects 5 photons into a 21-way experiment.
