In this talk, I will present our group’s efforts in developing chip-scale tools for quantum state engineering in the time-frequency domain. I will present our current work dealing with nanophotonic devices designed to generate frequency entangled photons and employ active time domain control to steer their time evolution. I will show how such a process can implement an analog quantum simulator and show simulations of rudimentary condensed matter phenomena. I will further discuss proposals for how this system can be scaled to generate multi-photon cluster states for one-way computation.
