    Quantum Supersampling



    With a focus on practical use of near-future quantum logic devices in computer graphics [Lanzagorta and Uhlmann 2005], we implement a qubit-based image supersampling technique with advantages over Monte Carlo estimation. In addition to applying the technique in a quantum computation device simulator, we implement a simplified version as a waveguide design for physical fabrication as an integrated photonic device.
