Nonadiabatic holonomic quantum transformations (NHQTs) have attracted wide attention and have been applied in many aspects of quantum computation, whereas related research is usually limited to the field of quantum physics. Here we bring NHQTs into constructing a unidirectional acoustic metamaterial (UDAM) for shaping classical beams. The UDAM is made up of an array of three-waveguide couplers, where the propagation of acoustic waves mimics the evolution of NHQTs. The excellent agreement among…

Gaussian soft control for controlled-Z gate on superconducting qubits with unilateral external driving

Soft quantum control is a valid technique for highly selective interactions recently illustrated in Haase et al (2018 Phys. Rev. Lett. 121 050402), holding efficient resonant couplings among target

Strong dissipation induced coupling interaction between photons

Dissipation is used to achieve the coupling interaction between different cavities connected by a low-Q cavity. When the dissipative rate of the central cavity is enough large, vacuum Rabi
