Realization of the quantum Toffoli gate with trapped ions.
Gates acting on more than two qubits are appealing as they can substitute complex sequences of two-qubit gates, thus promising faster execution and higher fidelity. One important multiqubit operationExpand

Quantum state reconstruction of spectral field modes: Homodyne and resonator detection schemes
We revisit the problem of quantum state reconstruction of light beams from the photocurrent quantum noise. As is well-known, but often overlooked, two longitudinal field modes contribute to eachExpand

Generation of bright two-color continuous variable entanglement.
We present the first measurement of squeezed-state entanglement between the twin beams produced in an optical parametric oscillator operating above threshold. In addition to the usual squeezing inExpand

Realization of universal ion-trap quantum computation with decoherence-free qubits.
Any residual coupling of a quantum computer to the environment results in computational errors. Encoding quantum information in a so-called decoherence-free subspace provides means to avoid theseExpand

Extra phase noise from thermal fluctuations in non-linear optical crystals
Recent experiments with Optical Parametric Oscillators have shown [1–3] that an unpredicted extra noise on the phase of the fields reduces the level of squeezing or quantum correlations. In someExpand

Continuous variables quantum computation over the vibrational modes of a single trapped ion
Abstract We consider the quantum processor based on a chain of trapped ions to propose an architecture wherein the motional degrees of freedom of trapped ions (position and momentum) could beExpand

Absolute Frequency Measurement of the 40Ca+ 4s 2S1/2 -3d2D5/2 Clock Transition
We report on the first absolute transition frequency measurement at the 10 -15 level with a single, laser-cooled 40 Ca + ion in a linear Paul trap. For this measurement, a frequency comb isExpand

Scalable continuous-variable entanglement of light beams produced by optical parametric oscillators
We show that scalable multipartite entanglement among light fields may be generated by optical parametric oscillators OPOs. The tripartite entanglement existent among the three bright beams producedExpand

Beyond spectral homodyne detection: complete quantum measurement of spectral modes of light.
Spectral homodyne detection, a widely used technique for measuring quantum properties of light beams, cannot retrieve all the information needed to reconstruct the quantum state of spectral fieldExpand
