Abstract
Quantum computing promises exponential speedup for particular computational tasks, such as integer factoring, which bears importance for encryption technology, and quantum simulation, which holds vast scientific potential. Comparing with the traditional circuit-based quantum computers, one-way quantum computers are experimentally appealing because it requires only local measurements on an entangled resource called a cluster state. In this thesis, I first review the fundamental theory of one-way quantum computing and its experimental implementation using the quantum optical frequency comb. After that, I present two novel schemes for generating ultra-scalable cluster states with rich structures that can be used for universal quantum computing.
