Abstract
(EN)
According to an example aspect of the present invention, there is provided an apparatus comprising a first and a second polarization beam splitter-rotator (140, 142), together arranged to split two incoming polarization encoded qubits into four first optical modes, the apparatus being configured to align polarizations of the four first optical modes, an interferometer stage (150) configured to obtain, from the four first optical modes, four second optical modes, and four detectors (160) arranged to receive at least one of the four second optical modes.
