Hybrid Quantum Computing with Conditional Beam Splitter Gate in Trapped Ion System.

This work realizes a nonlinear gate for universal quantum computing that swaps the quantum states of two motional modes, depending on the ion's internal state, and demonstrates its applications for quantum state overlap measurements, single-shot parity measurement, and generation of NOON states.

NOON States of Nine Quantized Vibrations in Two Radial Modes of a Trapped Ion.

A deterministic method to generate and verify arbitrarily high NOON states of quantized vibrations (phonons) through the coupling to the internal state, which is generic and applicable to other photonic or phononic systems such as circuit QED systems or nanomechanical oscillators, which have Jaynes-Cummings-type of interactions.

Physical implementation of quantum nonparametric learning with trapped ions

A quantum paradigm of nonparametric learning that offers an exponential speedup over the sample size is pointed out and a trained state for prediction can be obtained by entanglement spectrum transformation, using the quantum matrix toolbox.
