UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME Quantum Computation Classical Computation: Classical logic bit: “0” and “1” Quantum Computation: Quantum bit, “Qubit”, can be manipulated using the rules of quantum physics Orthogonal quantum states |0>, |1> and their superposition |Ψ> = c 0 |0> + c 1 |1> A Quantum state of M bits is a superposition of 2 M states. The quantum computation is a parallel computation in which all 2 M basis vectors are acted upon at the same time. If one wanted to simulate a quantum computer using a classical computer one would need to multiply together 2 M dimensional unitary matrices, to simulate each step. A quantum computer can factorize a 250-digit number in seconds while an ordinary computer will take 800 000 years!

UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME Quantum Computation |Ψ(0)> Preparation: The initial preparation of the state defines a wave function at time t 0 =0. |Ψ(1)> …. |Ψ(n)> P(Ф)=| | 2 U(t 1,t 0 ) U(t 2,t 1 ) U(t n,t n-1 ) 0 1 n State evolution: Evolved by a sequence of unitary operations Measurement: Quantum measurement is projective. Collapsed by measurement of the state

UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME Quantum Logic Gates Question: How to implement a general unitary operator? Answer: Introduce a complete set of logic gates. Any possible operation on an qubit register can be represented in terms of a suitable sequence of actions of such elementary logic gates It is proved that an arbitrary 2x2 unitary matrix may be decomposed as U = where α,β,ν, and δ are real-valued.

UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME The superconducting Flux Qubit I. Chiorescu et al., Science 299, 1869 (2003). Coherent time evolution between two quantum states was observed. Flux qubit consists of 3 Josephson junctions arranged in a superconducting loop. Two states carrying opposite persistent currents are used to represent |0> and |1>. External flux near half Φ 0 =h/2e is applied. A SQIUD is attached directly. MW line provides microwave current bursts inducing oscillating magnetic fields. Current line provides the measuring pulse and voltage line allows the readout of the switching pulse. Φ=h/4eclockwiseanticlockwise symmetric superposition antisymmetric superposition

UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME The superconducting Flux Qubit I. Chiorescu et al., Science 299, 1869 (2003). Qubit energy separation is adjusted by changing the external flux. Resonant absorption peaks/dips are observed. Dots are measured peak/dip positions obtained by varying frequency of MW pulse. The continuous line is a numerical fit giving an energy gap ∆ = 3.4 GHz in agreement of numerical simulations. Measurements of two energy levels of qubit

UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME The superconducting Flux Qubit I. Chiorescu et al., Science 299, 1869 (2003). Different MW pulse sequences are used to induce coherent quantum dynamics of the qubit in the time domain. Rabi oscillations - when the MW frequency equals the energy difference of the qubit, the qubit oscillates between the ground state and the excited state. Resonant MW pulse of variable length with frequency F = E 10 is applied. The pulse length defines the relative occupancy of the ground state and the excited state. The switching probability is obtained by repeating the whole sequence of reequilibration, microwave control pulses, and readout typically 5000 times. MW F = 6.6GHz MW power 0dbm, -6dbm, and -12dbm Linear dependence of the Rabi frequency on the MW amplitude, a key signature of the Rabi process. Decay times up to ~150 ns results in hundreds of coherent oscillations.
