**QUANTUM MECHANICAL COMPUTATION**

5
QUANTUM LOGIC Any quantum computation can be reduced to a sequence of 1 and 2 qubit operations: H |in> = H1 H2 H Hn |in> Conventional operations: NOT, AND Quantum operations: NOT, CNOT

**EXPERIMENTAL QUANTUM COMPUTATION**

Bulk spin resonance (Stanford, MIT): ? qubits Trapped cooled ions (Los Alamos, Oxford): ? qubits True quantum computer may require 106 qubits “Solid state” (semiconductor) quantum computer architectures Proposed using electron and nuclear spin to store qubits Electrons: D. Loss and D. DiVincenzo, Phys. Rev. A 57, 120 (1998). Nuclei: V. Privman, I. D. Vagner, and G. Kventsel, Phys. Lett. A in press, quant-ph/

**MeV ion etch pits in track detector**

Scale bars: 1 mm intervals Heavy ion etch pit Light ion etch pits Single MeV heavy ions are used to produce latent damage in plastic Etching in NaOH develops this damage to produce pits Light ions produce smaller pits 1.
