Abstract

A coherent Ising machine based on degenerate optical parametric oscillators (DOPOs) is drawing attention as a way to find a solution to the ground-state search problem of the Ising model. Here we report the generation of time-multiplexed DOPOs at a 10 GHz clock frequency. We successfully generated >50,000 DOPOs using dual-pump four-wave mixing in a highly nonlinear fiber that formed a 1 km cavity, and observed phase bifurcation of the DOPOs, which suggests that the DOPOs can be used as stable artificial spins. In addition, we demonstrated the generation of more than 1 million DOPOs by extending the cavity length to 21 km. We also confirmed that the binary numbers obtained from the DOPO phase-difference measurement passed the NIST random number test, which suggests that we can obtain unbiased artificial spins.
