  title={Decoherence-Free Subspaces for Quantum Computation},
  author={Daniel A. Lidar and Isaac L. Chuang and K. Birgitta Whaley},
  journal={Physical Review Letters},
Decoherence in quantum computers is formulated within the semigroup approach. The error generators are identified with the generators of a Lie algebra. This allows for a comprehensive description which includes as a special case the frequently assumed spin-boson model. A generic condition is presented for errorless quantum computation: decoherence-free subspaces are spanned by those states which are annihilated by all the generators. It is shown that these subspaces are stable to perturbations… 
Quantum computation in triangular decoherence-free subdynamic space
A formalism of quantum computing with 2000 qubits or more in decoherence-free subspaces is presented. The subspace is triangular with respect to the index related to the environment. The quantum
Quantum Computing in Decoherence-Free Subspace Constructed by Triangulation
A formalism for quantum computing in decoherence-free subspaces is presented. The constructed subspaces are partial triangulated to an index related to environment. The quantum states in the
Algebraic Method in the Analysis of Decoherence-Free Subspaces in Open Quantum Systems
This paper will study a general framework of decoherence-free subspaces and provide a criterion for the existence of a deco coherent subspace in open quantum systems.
Method to find quantum noiseless subsystems.
A structure theory for decoherence-free subspaces and noiseless subsystems that applies to arbitrary quantum operations and suggests that this work brings the fundamental passive technique for error correction in quantum computing an important step closer to practical realization.
A quantum code in decoherence-free and interaction-free subspaces
A quantum code based on decoherence-free subspace is considered. We investigate a special interaction—exchange interaction in the quantum system—and show that quantum states encoded by the quantum
Universal quantum computation with electronic qubits in decoherence-free subspace
This work designs building blocks for two noncommutable single-logic-qubit gates and a logic controlled phase gate, based on which a universal and scalable quantum information processing robust to dephasing is available in a deterministic way.
Generalized Noiseless Quantum Codes utilizing Quantum Enveloping Algebras
A generalization of the results of Rasetti and Zanardi concerning avoiding errors in quantum computers by using states preserved by evolution is presented. The concept of dynamical symmetry is
Algorithm-based analysis of collective decoherence in quantum computation
In a quantum computer, qubits are often stored in identical two-level systems separated by a distance shorter than the characteristic wavelength of the reservoirs that are responsible for
Realization of universal ion-trap quantum computation with decoherence-free qubits.
This work demonstrates the realization of a universal set of quantum gates acting on decoherence-free ion qubits, and combines these gates to realize the first controlled-NOT gate towards a decoherent-free, scalable quantum computer.
Decoherence of encoded quantum registers
In order to eliminate disturbing effects of decoherence, encoding of quantum information in decoherence-free subspaces has been suggested. We analyze the benefits of this concept for a quantum


Quantum Dynamical Semigroups and Applications
In this text the authors develop quantum dynamics of open systems for a wide class of irreversible processes starting from the concept of completely positive semigroups. This unified approach makes
