Because of their long coherence times, dopant ions have been considered promising candidates for scalable solid state quantum computing. Here we demonstrate a conditional phase shift between two qubits based on an optical transition of europium ions. The demonstration uses ensembles that have been selected from a randomly doped sample using spectral hole burning techniques. The electron dipole-dipole interaction between the ions that usually causes instantaneous spectral diffusion is used to… Expand

Coherent properties of single rare-earth spin qubits.
Experimental results on high-fidelity optical initialization, efficient coherent manipulation and optical readout of a single-electron spin of Ce(3+) ion in a yttrium aluminium garnet crystal suggest that cerium electron spins can be exploited as an interface between photons and long-lived nuclear spin memory.
