Photonics is a sophisticated platform for the development of novel quantum technologies, from quantum processors to distributed quantum communication. Most linear optical architectures focus on encoding qubits into photons using, for example, polarization or a dual-rail approach. However, encoding higher-dimensional systems - qudits - can in principle provide improved information capacity and noise tolerance in communication, and lower error thresholds in fault-tolerant quantum computation. Here we present new schemes for generating high-dimensional photonic entanglement and discuss how to build cluster states for universal high-dimensional quantum computation.
