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/0110143 ) Advantages of the demonstrated approach
