1: Introduction The one qubit system
1.1 Josephson Junction Behaves like a circuit with capacitance and inhomogenous inductor Josephson energy responsible for coherent tunneling Superconducting elements Gate electrode in our case also superconducting => very precise charge tuning
1.2 Hamiltonian Parabolar shape of the electric energy Josephson energy as a coupling between charge states => Charge is no good quantum number anymore !
1.3 Energy band with E J = 0 Charge as a good quantum number Degeneracy points => no energy needed to tunnel to the box
1.3 Energy bands with E J = 0 Change the quantum number from charge to energy !
1.4 Energy band with E J <> 0 Charge is no good quantum number degeneracy points splitted up Possible to reach the degeneracy point by applying a special pulse ! => rabi oscillation (~ to E)
1.5 Magnetic flux => The Josephson energy is a function of the magnetic flux !
2.1 Experiment setup 
2.2 Experiment 
2.3 Results 
3: Data analysis
3.1 Truth table Implementation of CNOT operation succeeded ! => compare data with simulation data
3.2 Data discussion Target qubit: good agreement with the experiment (but a little offset) Numerical calculation of the density matrix's time evolution Control qubit: Discrepency due to the unknown currend channel in the readout scheme Pulse induced currend should not exceed 2.4 pA but it does => currend has an extra component maybe from higher order Cooper-pair tunnerling
3.3 Possible improvements Increasing Em Decrease the raise/fall time of the pulse by 25 % => red lines
