First, we discuss two implementations to sequentially generate photonic matrix product states, one based on a Rydberg atomic array , and another based on a microwave cavity dispersively coupled to a transmon . We show both implementations can generate a large number of entangled photons. The Rydberg array further features free-space multi-port distribution of entanglement, while the cavity + transmon setup can be naturally extended to generate high-dimensional photonic states.
Then, we introduce plaquette projected entangled-pair states (p-PEPS), a class of states in a lattice that can be generated by applying sequential unitaries acting on plaquettes of overlapping regions. They satisfy area-law entanglement, possess long-range correlations, and naturally generalize other relevant classes of tensor network states. We identify a subclass that can be more efficiently prepared in a radial fashion and that contains the family of isometric tensor network states . We also show how such subclass can be efficiently prepared using an array of photon sources, and devise a physical realization by extending the above cavity-transmon setup .
