We propose a new approach to the implementation of quantum gates in which decoherence during the gate operations is strongly reduced. This is achieved by making use of an environment induced quantum Zeno effect that confines the dynamics effectively to a decoherence-free subspace.

Decoherence-Free Subspaces and Subsystems

Decoherence is the phenomenon of non-unitary dynamics that arises as a consequence of coupling between a system and its environment. It has important harmful implications for quantum information

Dissipation-assisted quantum computation in atom-cavity systems

This work proposes quantum computing with dissipation-assisted quantum gates which can be run relatively fast while achieving fidelities close to one and the success rate of each gate operation can, at least in principle, be arbitraryclose to one.

Distributed CNOT gate via quantum Zeno dynamics

We show how the quantum Zeno effect can be exploited to implement the CNOT gate in two separated cavities with two atomic four-level tripod systems. In respective subspaces of the total Hilbert

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Using continuous measurement to protect a universal set of quantum gates within a perturbed decoherence-free subspace

We consider a universal set of quantum gates encoded within a perturbed decoherence-free subspace of four physical qubits. Using second-order perturbation theory and a measuring device modelled by an

Continuous quantum error correction by cooling

This work describes an implementation of quantum error correction that operates continuously in time and requires no active interventions such as measurements or gates, and evaluates the effectiveness of the scheme by simulation.

Fast implementation of the 1→3 orbital state quantum cloning machine

We present a scheme to implement a 1→3 orbital state quantum cloning machine assisted by quantum Zeno dynamics. By constructing shortcuts to adiabatic passage with transitionless quantum driving, we

Experimental verification of decoherence-free subspaces.

Using spontaneous parametric down-conversion, we produce polarization-entangled states of two photons and characterize them using two-photon tomography to measure the density matrix. A controllable

A robust scheme for quantum information processing in cavity QED

We propose a robust scheme for the implementation of two-qubit phase gates with a cavity QED system. After the gate operation the computational basis states are equally damped by the decoherence
