Paper in 2000 in which author proposed cirtiera for a qunatum computer. has been guide in the fieldscaleable: can double number of qubits with polynomial increasein resources -Most of the criteria have been met in different qubits-focus on 2 qubit gates
-Why use photons: highly coherent and can mediate interactions between distance objects-In a cavity QED system, we have enhanced qubit-photon interactions-If we work in the strong coupling limit, we have a coherent interaction between TLS-photon, permitting information transfer.
Start with JCM in the RWA
One of the regimes well consider is the strongly dispersive
No TLS-cavity interaction: no exchange of excitationsIt will be useful to turn off the qubit-qubit interaction in order to apply 1-qubit gates
Top: schematic of cavity. -2 transmon qubits, located at opposite cavity ends -Coplanar waveguide interrupted by 2 coupling capacitors (mirrors)
Why work in the strongly dispersive limit?----- Meeting Notes (12/5/12 12:45) -----In this limit we can use the cavity as a medium connecting the qubits and obtain a spin-spin Hamiltonian
First qubit absorbs a nonresonant photon: non-energy conserving process, so the probability of happening is small. This information is transmitted through the cavity to the other qubit that goes to the ground state such that the whole process is energy conserving. That means that the probability of happening is small.
Satisfy criteria 4 and 3 (sort of), in that we can manipulate the qubits before they decohere
Solid line is theory, dots are actual dataDecay is decoherence: <a+a^\\dagger> decays exponentially
Black line: homodyne voltage due to Stark pulse without pi-pulse being applied to either qubitThin lines: without stark pulseAverage over 3E6 tracesiSWAP- Universal quantum gate.How do we know this is really a manifestation of the qubit-oscillation term in the Hamiltonian?
Plot of the obersved qubit oscillation frequency and the calculated frequency splittingWhy should we observe a dark stateQubit1: 6.469, Qubit2: 6.546
Virtual particle: a particle that exists for a limited time and space. Obeys energy-time uncertainty.Virtual photons have mass (from borrowed energy) b/c they exist for limited time, giving them limited “range”
