We review the present state of the art in using the endohedral fullerenes N@C60 and P@C60 as qubits in a spin quantum computer. After a brief introduction to spin quantum computing, we first discuss the rich spin structure of these endohedral fullerenes and specific theoretical proposals for architectures and operation models leading to a scalable quantum computer. We then briefly discuss those aspects of materials science that are needed to realize the proposed architectures. The central part… 

Slow spin relaxation in single endohedral fullerene molecules

Well-protected magnetization, tunable quantum states and long coherence time are desired for the use of magnetic molecules in spintronics and quantum information technologies. In this work,

The Second Quantum Revolution: Role and Challenges of Molecular Chemistry.

The role that molecular chemistry can have in the current second quantum revolution, i.e., the use of quantum physics principles to create new quantum technologies, is highlighted by identifying the key advances recently made by the molecular chemistry community.

First-principles investigation of spin-phonon coupling in vanadium-based molecular spin qubits

Paramagnetic molecules can show long spin-coherence times, which make them good candidates as quantum bits. Reducing the efficiency of the spin-phonon interaction is the primary challenge towards

Electronic, vibrational and optical properties of two-electron atoms and ions trapped in small fullerene-like cages

The problem of atoms and molecules caged inside fullerenes has attracted renewed interests since a new endohedral species has been experimentally realized (Bloodworth et al 2019 Angew. Chem., Int.

Construction of Two-Ququart Quantum Entanglement by Using Magnetic Resonance Selective Pulse Sequences

Abstract A d-dimensional unit of information in quantum computing is called a qudit. For d = 4 there exist four magnetic quantum numbers of spin-3/2. These four levels can be called ququarts. Then,

Realization of tunable artificial synapse and memory based on amorphous oxide semiconductor transistor

The modeling for relaxation process of important synaptic behaviors, excitatory post-synaptic current (EPSC), has been updated as a stretched-exponential function with voltage factors in a more quantitative way to better simulate, realize and thus control neuromorphic computing.



Architectures for a Spin Quantum Computer Based on Endohedral Fullerenes

We present a discussion of recent concepts for the construction of a spin quantum computer using endohedral fullerenes. The fullerene molecule is a static, room-temperature trap for atoms with slowly

The challenges of individual addressing in such tiny structures could rapidly become intractable with increasing numbers of qubits, but these schemes are amenable to global addressing methods for computation.

Experimental Steps Towards the Realisation of a Fullerene Quantum Computer

In connection with the realization of a fullerene quantum computer, the construction of linear chains of endohedral fullerenes and their orientation with respect to the external magnetic field is
