Robust logic gates and realistic quantum computation

  title={Robust logic gates and realistic quantum computation},
  author={Li Xiao and Jonathan A. Jones},
  journal={Physical Review A},
The composite rotation approach has been used to develop a range of robust quantum logic gates, including single qubit gates and two qubit gates, which are resistant to systematic errors in their implementation. Single qubit gates based on the BB1 family of composite rotations have been experimentally demonstrated in a variety of systems, but little study has been made of their application in extended computations, and there has been no experimental study of the corresponding robust two qubit…

Multi-qubit compensation sequences

The Hamiltonian control of n qubits requires precision control of both the strength and timing of interactions. Compensation pulses relax the precision requirements by reducing unknown but systematic

Progress in Compensating Pulse Sequences for Quantum Computation

The control of qubit states is often impeded by systematic control errors. Compensating pulse sequences have emerged as a resource efficient method for quantum error reduction. In this review, we

Randomized benchmarking of single- and multi-qubit control in liquid-state NMR quantum information processing

Being able to quantify the level of coherent control in a proposed device implementing a quantum information processor (QIP) is an important task for both comparing different devices and assessing a

A Constructive Algorithm for Reversible Logic Synthesis

This paper presents a constructive synthesis algorithm for any n-qubit reversible function, where N distinct input patterns different from their corresponding outputs, and shows that this circuit can be synthesized by at most 2nldrN '(n - 1)'-CNOT gates and 4n2 ldr N NOT gates.

Information in Quantum Description and Gate Implementation

This note considers Kak's observer-reference model of quantum information, where it is shown that qubits carry information that is sqrt n / ln n times classical information, to analyze information processing in quantum gates.

Quantum Circuit Design and Analysis for Database Search Applications

This paper shows how quantum Boolean circuits can be used to implement the oracle and the inversion-about-average function in Grover's search algorithm, and proposes a template of quantum circuits capable of searching the solution of a certain class of one-way functions.
