13 EuroSQIPS.Poletto13 Frequency dependence on pulse amplitude (  Φ c ) Green dots: experimental data Blue line: theoretical curve Theoretical interpretation

14 EuroSQIPS.Poletto14 Theoretical interpretation Note: In the case of asymmetric potential one should take into account a non-adiabatic population of the states {|0 , |1  }

15 Conclusions

16 EuroSQIPS.Poletto16 Summary and conclusions Oscillations are obtained without using microwave pulses Due to large energy level spacing the system can evolve at high temperature (up to h /k B  1.1K) High frequency of coherent oscillations (up to 35 GHz) allow for high speed quantum gates A qubit coherence time of ~ 500 ns should be sufficient to implement an error correction algorithm ( required ~10 4 operations during the coherence time. See e.g.: arXiv:quant-ph/ ) Advantages of the demonstrated approach
