Several implementation methods of quantum computation algorithm by conventional computer have been explored for large-scale emulation. Due to the lack of quantum effects, these methods generally require exponential growth of the size of the hardware with increase of the number of qubits. In this paper, the spatial coding, which is an effective digital optical computing technique, is studied as an efficient implementation method of quantum computation algorithms. In the proposed scheme, quantum information is represented by the intensity and the phase of elemental cells. We confirmed correct operation of the quantum teleportation algorithm by computer simulation. We also demonstrated a photonic implementation of some of the quantum gates experimentally.
