We study the implementation of the Grover Search Algorithm by means of photons that carry orbital angular momentum (OAM) using the one-way quantum computing (1WQC) model. Our setup is related to a corresponding scheme of Zeilinger et al [1], which realizes a two-bit Grover Search by employing the polarization of photons. [1] Anton Zeilinger et al.
