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…

Universal Quantum Computing Using Electronuclear Wavefunctions of Rare-Earth Ions

We propose a scheme for universal quantum computing based on Kramers rare-earth ions. Their nuclear spins in the presence of a Zeeman-split electronic crystal field ground state act as 'passive'

Quantum processing with ensembles of rare-earth ions in a stoichiometric crystal

We describe a method for creating small quantum processors in a crystal stoichiometric in an optically active rare-earth ion. The crystal is doped with another rare earth, creating an ensemble of

Quantum Computing Hardware based on Rare-Earth-Ion Doped Whispering-Gallery Mode Resonators

Rare-earth-ion doped crystals are an interesting system for quantum computing investigations due to their long optical and hyperfine coherence times. In particular, the ground-state coherence times

Assessment of a quantum phase gate operation based on nonlinear optics

We analyze in detail the proposal for a two-qubit gate for travelling single-photon qubits recently presented by Ottaviani et al. [Phys. Rev. A 73, 010301(R) (2006)]. The scheme is based on an

Quantum repeaters with individual rare-earth ions at telecommunication wavelengths

We present a quantum repeater scheme that is based on individual erbium and europium ions. Erbium ions are attractive because they emit photons at telecommunication wavelength, while europium ions

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.

Coherent Interactions in Rare-Earth-Ion-Doped Crystals for Applications in Quantum Information Science

This thesis describes investigations of the use of cryogenically cooled rare-earth-ion-doped crystals for quantum information processing and quantum optics. Several aspects of the coherent

Experimental demonstration of efficient and selective population transfer and qubit distillation in a rare-earth-metal-ion-doped crystal

In optically controlled quantum computers it may be favorable to address different qubits using light with different frequencies, since the optical diffraction does not then limit the distance

Strong-coupling cavity QED using rare-earth-metal-ion dopants in monolithic resonators: What you can do with a weak oscillator

We investigate the possibility of achieving the strong coupling regime of cavity quantum electrodynamics using rare-earth-metal-ions as impurities in monolithic optical resonators. We conclude that



Experimental demonstration of quantum-state tomography and qubit-qubit interactions for rare-earth-metal-ion-based solid-state qubits

We report on the implementation of quantum state tomography for an ensemble of ${\text{Eu}}^{3+}$ dopant ions in a ${\mathrm{Y}}_{2}{\text{SiO}}_{5}$ crystal. The tomography was applied to a qubit

Solid state coherent transient measurements using hard optical pulses

With the narrow feature it is shown that it is feasible to apply complex optical pulse sequences analogous to rf pulse sequences used extensively in NMR.
