Apparatus capable of developing any function within the DATA REGISTER, such funtion being specified by a PROGRAM REGISTER. It is not possible to build a deterministic quantum processor with a finite number of resources, but it is possible to build a probabilistic one. CLASSICAL PROCESSOR QUANTUM PROCESSOR QUANTUM PROCESSORS

19
When implementing a set of inequivalent operations, the program state apace must contain a set of mutually orthogonal states. This means that the dimension of the Program Register must be as big as the number of unitary operators we want to implement.Since this number (of unitary operators) is infinite, it is not possible to build a processor with a finite number of resources. HOWEVER, WE CAN ALWAYS BUILD A PROBABILISTIC PROCESSOR (quantum measurements are implied) QUANTUM PROCESSORS Limitations due to Quantum Mechanics.

23
To understand the procedure, consider a single Program Register. First we define the program and the data PROGRAM STATE DATA STATE

24
+ In this case, a measurement on the program register will cause a collapse On the data qubit with the outcome. If we measure 0 in the program, we get the good answer, If we measure 1, we get the wrong answer With a probability 1/2 + Bad result is for 1in P1

25
To improve upon this scheme, we introduce a Toffoli Gate, as in the Figure. The data line and the first program qubit are unchanged, however,If the output of the program register is Indicating a failure, the Toffoli gate effectively acts like a C-Not Gate Between the data line and a second program qubit There is again a probability 1/2 of getting this time THEREFORE, WE HAVE INCREASED THE SUCCESS PROBABILITY to 3/4 (and so on…) Bad result only in the 11 case

26
One can generalize the argument, including MORE GENERALIZED TOFFOLI GATES, and having a success probability of Where N is the number of Program qubits or generalized Toffoli Gates (also the number of measurements) The price we pay is the increase of gates and number of measurements

51
CONCLUSIONS Quantum Copying Machines Every preparation Program is realized with 2 C-Not and 3 rotations, for each preparation state one can find 8 possible sets of rotation angles.. In spite of the No-Cloning Theorem, it is always possible to build a copying machine with a fidelity different from one.(5/6 is the optimum) The machine described here can produce 2 or 3 copies according to the preparation. The copies obtained here have a fidelity factor of F =variable(max 5/6)

52
CONCLUSIONS Processors In spite of the fact that is impossible to build a deterministic processor (with finite resources), it is feasible to build a probabilistic one. The Buzek proposal for a processor, for qubits, can be also used to implement an unknown operation U, with a certain probability p. It is possible to generalize this processor and work with qudits of dimension N. The probability of implementation of the Cirac proposal can be incremented by a feedback procedure, approaching one. There is an effort to implement the probability with a single step, together with the factibility of implementing it with known gates….

PROPOSAL OF A UNIVERSAL QUANTUM COPYING MACHINE IN CAVITY QED Joanna Gonzalez Miguel Orszag Sergio Dagach Facultad de Física Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile

60
The Jaynes Cummings model The Jaynes-Cummings Model describing the interaction Of a single two level atom with a single quantized cavity mode Of the radiation field plays a central role in quantum optics. In spite of the mathematical simplicity of this model, is physically Realistic. It describes purely quantum mechanichal phenomena like Rabi oscillations, collapses and revivals of the atomic inversion, subPoissonian statistics and squeezing of the cavity field. Also, experiments with highly excited Rydberg atoms in high Q Cavities have allowed to investigate experimentally the interaction of a single atom with a single cavity mode Thus proving experimentally the predictions of the JC Model.

61
The Hamiltonian in the dipole approximation can be written as Creation photon and destr atomic unit of en destr photon and creation atomic unit of en destr photon and destr atomic unit of en Creation photon and creation atomic unit of en JAYNES CUMMINGS MDEL TWO LEVEL ATOM AND DIPOLE APPROXIMATIONS Normally in QO this last two terma are neglected in the So-called RWA

62
a b Two level atom It is simple to prove that under the JC dynamics, and if The atom is initially in the a state, and the field with n photons (Fock state) Rabi oscillation and was originally studied in NMR

63
If initially we donot have a Fock state but a rather A combination of Fock states, a coherent state Then a curious phenomena takes place, Called COLLAPSE AND REVIVAL

64
Pa-Pb

65
Constructive and destructive interference between the various Rabi oscillations.Apparently the Poisson distribution has the correct Factors for total collapse. If we try a thermal state, will observe ONLY PARTIAL COLLAPSES

66
OSCILLATION VERSUS EXPONENTIAL DECAY For a long time the Jaynes-Cummings Model appeared to be A highly academic model. It described an atom and a field that periodically pass the energy From one to the other like two coupled pendulum or two coupled oscillators. On the other hand, people saw in the LAB a different reality. ATOMS DECAYED FROM EXCITED TO GROUND STATES. Of course there was the Wigner Weiskopf theory of spontaneous Emission (Also Einstein phenomenological theory) that explained Such a decay if one took AN INFINITE NUMBER OF OSCILLATORS COUPLED TO THE ATOM.

67
RYDBERG ATOMS However, the situation has changed over the last two decades. The introduction of highly tunable Dye Lasers, which can excite Large population of highly excited atomic states with a high Main quantum number n.These atoms are referred as Rydberg Atoms. Such excited atoms are very suitable for atom-radiation experiments Because they are very strongly coupled to the radiation field, since The transition rates between neighbouring levels scale as n^4. Also transitions are in the microwave region where photons live longer, thus allowing longer interaction times. Finally, Rydber atoms have long lifetimes with respect to spontaneous decay. THE STRONG COUPLING OF THE RYDBERG ATOMS TO THE FIELD CAN BE UNDERSTOOD SINCE THE DIPOLE MOMENT SCALES WITH n^2, (typical n~70 )

68
MICROMASER

69
A one atom maser is described in the previous figure. A collimated beam of Rubidium atoms is passed through A velocity selector. Before entering a high Q superconducting microwave cavity The atom is excited to a high n-level and converted In a Rydberg atom. The microwave cavity is made of niobium and cooled down To a low temperature. The Rydberg atoms are detected in the upper or lower level By two field ionization detectors with their fields Adjusted so that in the first detector, only atoms in the Upper state are ionized.

70
MICROMASER MASER OPERATION (Walther et al) WAS DEMONSTRATED BY TUNING THE CAVITY TO THE MASER TRANSITION AND RECORDING SIMULTANEOUSLY, THE FLUX OF ATOMS IN THE EXCITED STATE. AS SHOWN IN THE FIGURE, OM RESONANCE, A REDUCTION OF THE SIGNAL WAS OBSERVED FOR RELATIVELY SMALL ATOMIC FLUXES (1750 ATS^-1) HIGHER FLUXES PRODUCE POWER BROADENING AND A SMALL FRQUENCY SHIFT. ALSO THE TWO PHOTON MICROMASER WAS DEMONSTRATED(HAROCHE ET AL)

72
The No-Cloning Theorem (Wooters and Zurek,Nature299,802(1982)) showed that it is not possible to construct a device that will produce an exact copy of an arbitrary quantum state. This Theorem is an unexpected quantum effect due to the linearity of Quantum Mechanics, as opposed to Classical Physics, where the copying Process presents no difficulties, and this represents the most significant difference between Classical and Quantum Information. Thus, an operation like:

73
Is not possible, with: =INPUT QUBIT =initial state of cloner =Blank copy =final state of cloner Because of this Theorem, scientist ignored the subject up to 1996 when Buzek and Hillery (V.Buzek,M.Hillery,Phys.Rev.A,54,1844(1996) proposed the Universal Quantum Copying Machine(UQCM)-that produced two imperfect copies from an original qubit, the quality of which was independent of the input state.

74
UNIVERSAL QUANTUM COPYING MACHINE BASIS The quality of the copy is measured through the FIDELITY

75
In the present work, we propose a protocol that produces 2 copies from an input state, with Fidelity In the context of Cavity QED, in which the information is encoded in the electronic levels of Rb atoms, that interact with two Nb high Q cavities. SOME PREVIOUS BACKGROUND TO THE PROPOSAL Consider a two level atom that is prepared in a superposition state, using the Microwave pulses in a Ramsey Zone, with frequency Near the e(excited)-g(ground) transition. It generates superpositions Depends on the interaction time Is prop. detuning

76
On the other hand, the atom-field interaction is described by the Jaynes Cummings Hamiltonian Coupling constant

77
The atom-field state evolves like For example, for

78

79
Now, consider an external Classical pulse, interacting with the atom We use the dressed state basis that diagonalizes the J-C Hamiltonian:, The Energies of the dressed states are

80
In the limit Consider the external field in resonance with the (+,1)- (-,0) Transition, that is Where f(t) is some smooth function of time to represent the pulse shape, with(in the dispersive case)

81
The above Hamiltonian has been studied by several authors (Domokos et al;Giovannetti et al) and arrive to the conclusion that For a suitable pulse, a C-NOT gate can be achieved, where the photon Number (0 or 1) is the control and the atom the target The mechanism of the above C-NOT gate that forbids, for example the (g,0>-- (e,0> transition is the Stark Effect, caused by one photon in the cavity. In order to resolve these two transitions, we have to make sure that

ATOM 1 A1, initially at is prepared in a superposition, via a Ramsey Field A1 interacts with the cavity Ca(initially in )through a Rotation, so State swapping.The excitation of atom 1 is transferred to the cavity a g

88
ATOM 2 IT CONTAINS THE INFORMATION TO BE CLONED This state can be prepared in the same fashion as the atom 1, for example with a Ramsey Field. Then we apply a Classical pulse, as described before, generating a C-NOT gate,nothing happens with 0 photons C-not

DISCUSSION Experimental numbers(Haroche et al) An interaction time ofMarginally satisfies the earlier requirement. With the flight time of 100 The whole scheme should Take about 700Which is reasonable in a cavity with a Relaxation time of 16ms.They achieved a resolution required to Distinguish between 1 or 0 photons

97
We first show how to realize the rotation of a qubit via a quantum processor, using two and three qubit gates. Next we discuss these C-NOT and TOFFOLI gates, implemented by making use the two and three dimensional Center of mass vibrational qubits using a single three level ion. Control and coupling of the ion´s internal electronic states is achieved via far detuned lasers exciting a Raman transition scheme.

98
Finally we put things together and come up with the proposal

The actual operation of the processor consists in three phases 1)Preparation,2)Processing and 3)Measurement In the first phase, the ion is Prepared in the ground state and is loaded with the data and program states. In the Processing phase, the lasers are switched on with the detunings and spatial orientations required for the required Pulse periods. In the detection phase, the y and z vibrational state of the ion is Measured, thus indicating whether the desired operation was applied successfully on the data state. The actual loading of the vibrational state could be done in a separate trap on an auxilliary ion. The vibrational state of this auxilliary ion can be transferred to our ion, following for example, the proposal of Paternostro et al M.Paternostro,M.S.Kim,P.L.Knight,PRA,71,022311(2005)

125
The feasibility of the proposal depends strongly on the Decoherence time which is of the order of 1-10ms. The characteristic time required for an operation like H3T, For a Lamb Dicke parameter =0.3 and Corresponds, for (full cycle) a time of 0.53 ms. In principle this time could be decreased since As long as the laser power is not beyond Watts/cm2 which would photoionize the atom

126
Alternatively,one may attempt to increase the motional state Decoherence time of the trap. C.Monroe et al have recently done experiments where the heating rate is very low (Cd+ ions)where they report Which means that an n=1 state can have a life of 40ms!!!!!!!!!!!GREAT…… L.Deslauriers,P.Haljan,J.P.Lee,K.A.Brickman,B.B.Blinov,M.J.Madsen, C.Monroe,PRA,70,043408(2004 )

127
Measurement or reconstruction of the quantum mechanical state of a trapped ion Where the information on the vibrational CM motion of a trapped ion can be Transferred to it´s electronis dynamic by irradiating a long living electronic transition by laser light and probing a strong transition for resonance Fluorescence. Was first suggested by S.Wallentowitz,W.Vogel, PRL,75,2932(1995) Other reconstruction schemes, applying coherent displacements of different Magnitudes was suggested both theoretically and experimentally by D.Liebfried, D.M.Meekhof,B.E.King,C.Monroe,W.M.Itano, D.J.Wineland,PRL,77,4281,(1996) QND measurements of vibrational populations in ionic traps. This scheme allows The production of of Fock states, associated with the CM motion and it is based On the fact that the Rabi Frequency between two internal states of the ion Induced by a resonant carrier field depends on the vibronic number. L.Davidovich,M.Orszag,N.Zagury,PRA,54,5118(1996) R.L.Matos Filho,W.Vogel,PRL,76,4520(1996) Direct Measurement of the Wigner Function L.G.Lutterbach,L.Davidovich,PRL 78,2547(1997)

128
A generalization of the QND measurement of the vibronic states (which was originally suggested for one dimensional vibrations, was extended to higher dimensions, quite appropriate in the present scheme, was done by W.Kaige et al Quantum Non-Demolition Measurements and Quantum State Manipulation in two dimensional Trapped Ion In Modern Challenges in Quantum optics, M.Orszag,J.C.Retamal, Edts, Springer Verlag,2001

129
Quantum non-demolition measurements are design to avoid The back-action of the measurement on the detected Observable. For example, in the optical domain, we find experiments Using Kerr effect in a solid or liquid medium. The signal field to be measured interacts non-linearly With a probe field, whose phase changes by a quantity Which depends linearly on the number of photons in the signal beam. In the Haroche group, they developed a QND method To measure the number of photons stored in a high Q cavity Which is sensitive to a very small number of photons.

130
The method is based on the detection of a dispersive phase shift produced by the field on the wave function of Non-resonant atoms which cross the cavity. This shift which is proportional to the photon number in the Cavity,is measured by atomic interferometry, using Ramsey fields. Since the atoms are non-resonant with the cavity, No photon is exchanged between them and the Cavity and the measurement is indeed a QND one. However, the information aquired by detecting A sequence of atoms modifies the field step by step,until It eventually collapses into a Fock state, which a priory is Unpredictable. A repetition of the measurement, for the same initial state Of the field will yield a distribution of Fock states, which reproduces the initial distribution of the field.

131
In a similar way, it is possible to realize a QND Measurement of the vibrational population distribution For an ion in a Paul trap. As in the cavity QED case, a Fock state is generated in the process.

We are proposing a scheme for implementing a single qubit Stochastic Quantum Processor using a single cold Trapped ion. The Processor implements an arbitrary rotation around the z-axis of the Bloch sphere of the data qubit, GIVEN TWO PROGRAM QUBITS. The operation is applied succesfully with a probability P=3/4 We analize the preparation process, discuss decoherence and also propose various possible measurement schemes on the program qubit space.
