Hamiltonian engineering is an important approach for quantum information processing, when appropriate materials do not exist in nature or are unstable. So far there is no stable material for the Kitaev spin Hamiltonian with anisotropic interactions on a honeycomb lattice, which plays a crucial role in the realization of both Abelian and non-Abelian anyons. Here, we show two methods to dynamically realize the Kitaev spin Hamiltonian from the conventional Heisenberg spin Hamiltonian using pulse…

Non-Hermitian tight-binding network engineering
We suggest a simple method to engineer a tight-binding quantum network based on proper coupling to an auxiliary non-Hermitian cluster. In particular, it is shown that effective complex non-Hermitian


Anyons in an exactly solved model and beyond
A spin-1/2 system on a honeycomb lattice is studied. The interactions between nearest neighbors are of XX, YY or ZZ type, depending on the direction of the link; different types of interactions may
Dynamic generation of topologically protected self-correcting quantum memory
We propose a scheme to dynamically realize a quantum memory based on the toric code. The code is generated from qubit systems with typical two-body interactions (Ising, XY, Heisenberg) using
Hilbert-space structure of a solid-state quantum computer: Two-electron states of a double-quantum-dot artificial molecule
We theoretically study a double-quantum-dot hydrogen molecule in the GaAs conduction band as the basic elementary gate for a quantum computer, with the electron spins in the dots serving as qubits.
Creation, manipulation, and detection of Abelian and non-Abelian anyons in optical lattices.
This paper shows how to simulate the creation and manipulation of Abelian and non-Abelian anyons in topological lattice models using trapped atoms in optical lattices and requires an ancilla particle which can undergo single-particle gates, be moved close to each constituent of the lattice and undergo a simple quantum gate, and be detected.
Quantum emulation of a spin system with topologically protected ground states using superconducting quantum circuits
Using superconducting quantum circuits, we propose an approach to construct a Kitaev lattice, i.e., an anisotropic spin model on a honeycomb lattice with three types of nearest-neighbor interactions.
Driven coherent oscillations of a single electron spin in a quantum dot
The experimental realization of single electron spin rotations in a double quantum dot is reported, demonstrating the feasibility of operating single-electron spins in a quantum dot as quantum bits.
Topological degeneracy and vortex manipulation in Kitaev's honeycomb model.
A perturbative low-energy effective Hamiltonian is derived that is valid to all orders of the expansion and for all possible toroidal configurations and note that in the thermodynamic limit it is robust to all Orders.
Implementation of standard quantum error-correction codes for solid-state qubits
In quantum error-correcting code (QECC), many quantum operations and measurements are necessary to correct errors in logical qubits. In the stabilizer formalism, which is widely used in QECC,
Spin interactions and switching in vertically tunnel-coupled quantum dots
We determine the spin-exchange coupling J between two electrons located in two vertically tunnel-coupled quantum dots, and its variation when magnetic (B) and electric (E) fields (both in-plane and
Robust quantum state transfer in random unpolarized spin chains.
It is demonstrated that coherent quantum coupling between remote qubits can be achieved via certain classes of random, unpolarized (infinite temperature) spin chains through a new approach to quantum state transfer between remote spin qubits.
