In a recent experiment, we have shown how optical interference can be exploited in order to perform computations and in particular factoring large integers. This has lead us to the developing of a novel analogue algorithm which allows the factorization of several large integers in a single run. This work represents a step stone towards the developing of novel physical networks able to implement quantum digital algorithms other than Shor’s algorithm. We describe the main ideas leading to this new line of research referring to future publications for a detailed description.
