Quantum computation with quantum dots

  title={Quantum computation with quantum dots},
  author={Daniel Loss and David P. DiVincenzo},
  journal={Physical Review A},
We propose an implementation of a universal set of one- and two-quantum-bit gates for quantum computation using the spin states of coupled single-electron quantum dots. Desired operations are effected by the gating of the tunneling barrier between neighboring dots. Several measures of the gate quality are computed within a recently derived spin master equation incorporating decoherence caused by a prototypical magnetic environment. Dot-array experiments that would provide an initial…

Topological quantum gates with quantum dots
We present an idealized model involving interacting quantum dots that can support both the dynamical and geometrical forms of quantum computation. We show that by employing a structure similar to the
Coherent control of three-spin states in a triple quantum dot
Manipulating the electrons trapped in quantum-dot pairs is one possible route to quantum computation. Translating this idea to three quantum dots would enable a whole host of extended functionality.
Universal quantum computing with nanowire double quantum dots
We present a method for implementing universal quantum computing using a singlet and triplets of nanowire double quantum dots coupled to a one-dimensional transmission line resonator. This method is
Predicted ultrafast single-qubit operations in semiconductor quantum dots
Several proposals for scalable quantum computation rely on the manipulation of the spin of individual electrons in semiconductors. We show that a spin-sensitive optical Stark effect will produce a
Spin-based all-optical quantum computation with quantum dots: Understanding and suppressing decoherence
We present an all-optical implementation of quantum computation using semiconductor quantum dots. Quantum memory is represented by the spin of an excess electron stored in each dot. Two-qubit gates
Quantum Computation and Proposal for Solid-state Quantum Gates
A simulative analysis of a physical system based on coherent electron propagation in quantum wires shows how such a system meets the requirements for the realization of a universal set of quantum gates.
Quantum Entanglement and Teleportation of Quantum-Dot States in Microcavities
Generation and control of quantum entanglement are studied in an equivalent-neighbor system of spatiallyseparated semiconductor quantum dots coupled by a single-mode cavity field. Generation of

Physics Today.
Using a combination of x-ray diffraction and electron diffraction, the scientists produced a three-dimensional map of the hybridized "orbital hole" bonding copper with neighboring oxygen atoms in cuprite (Cu2O).
