The Physical Implementation of Quantum Computation

  title={The Physical Implementation of Quantum Computation},
  author={David P. DiVincenzo and Ibm},
  journal={Protein Science},
After a brief introduction to the principles and promise of quantum information processing, the requirements for the physical implementation of quantum computation are discussed. These five requirements, plus two relating to the communication of quantum information, are extensively ex- plored and related to the many schemes in atomic physics, quantum optics, nuclear and electron magnetic resonance spectroscopy, superconducting electronics, and quantum-dot physics, for achiev- ing quantum… 

A Short Introduction to Quantum Information and Quantum Computation

Materials issues for quantum computation

The new field of quantum computing uses qubits (quantum bits) in place of classical bits to carry out certain types of computation. Physical systems that act as qubits encompass a wide range of

Quantum information and quantum computation are linked by a common mathematical and physical framework of quantum mechanics. The manipulation of the predicted dynamics and its optimization is known

Universal quantum computation with the exchange interaction

An explicit scheme is introduced in which the Heisenberg interaction alone suffices to implement exactly any quantum computer circuit, at a price of a Factor of three in additional qubits, and about a factor of ten in additional two-qubit operations.

A proof is given, which relies on the commutator algebra of the unitary Lie groups, that quantum gates operating on just two bits at a time are sufficient to construct a general quantum circuit. The

Simulation of Topological Field Theories¶by Quantum Computers

Abstract: Quantum computers will work by evolving a high tensor power of a small (e.g. two) dimensional Hilbert space by local gates, which can be implemented by applying a local Hamiltonian H for a

Demonstration of a fundamental quantum logic gate.

Electron-spin-resonance transistors for quantum computing in silicon-germanium heterostructures

We apply the full power of modern electronic band-structure engineering and epitaxial heterostructures to design a transistor that can sense and control a single-donor electron spin. Spin-resonance

Quantum vs. classical communication and computation

A simple and general simulation technique is presented that transforms any black-box quantum algorithm to a quantum communication protocol for a related problem, in a way that fully exploits the quantum parallelism, to obtain new positive and negative results.
