  • We demonstrate a quantum error correction scheme that protects against accidental measurement, using a parity encoding where the logical state of a single qubit is encoded into two physical qubits using a nondeterministic photonic controlled-NOT gate. For the single qubit input states vertical bar 0>, vertical bar 1>, vertical bar 0>{+-} vertical bar 1>, and vertical bar 0>{+-}i vertical bar 1> our encoder produces the appropriate two-qubit encoded state with an average fidelity of 0.88{+-}0.03 and the single qubit decoded states have an average fidelity of 0.93{+-}0.05 with the original state. We are able to decode the two-qubit state (upmore » to a bit flip) by performing a measurement on one of the qubits in the logical basis; we find that the 64 one-qubit decoded states arising from 16 real and imaginary single-qubit superposition inputs have an average fidelity of 0.96{+-}0.03.« less
  • We propose a practical, scalable, and efficient scheme for quantum computation using spatially separated matter qubits and single-photon interference effects. The qubit systems can be nitrogen-vacancy centers in diamond, Pauli-blockade quantum dots with an excess electron, or trapped ions with optical transitions, which are each placed in a cavity and subsequently entangled using a double-heralded single-photon detection scheme. The fidelity of the resulting entanglement is extremely robust against the most important errors such as detector loss, spontaneous emission, and mismatch of cavity parameters. We demonstrate how this entangling operation can be used to efficiently generate cluster states of many qubits,more » which, together with single-qubit operations and readout, can be used to implement universal quantum computation. Existing experimental parameters indicate that high-fidelity clusters can be generated with a moderate constant overhead.« less
  • Recently Barrett and Kok proposed an elegant method for entangling separated matter qubits. They outlined a strategy for using their entangling operation (EO) to build graph states, the resource for one-way quantum computing. Here I argue that their strategy considerably underrates the power and utility of their EO. By viewing their EO as a graph fusion event, one perceives that each successful event introduces an ideal redundant graph edge, which growth strategies should exploit. For example, if each EO succeeds with probability p > or approx. 0.4 then a highly connected graph can be formed with an overhead of onlymore » about ten EO attempts per graph edge. The Barrett and Kok (BK) scheme then becomes competitive with the more elaborate entanglement procedures designed to permit p to approach unity [Phys. Rev. Lett. 95, 030505 (2005)].« less
  • Building on the previous results of the Weyl chamber steering method, we demonstrate how to generate high-fidelity controlled-NOT (CNOT) gates by direct application of certain physically relevant Hamiltonians with fixed coupling constants containing Rabi terms. Such Hamiltonians are often used to describe two superconducting qubits driven by local rf pulses. It is found that in order to achieve 100% fidelity in a system with capacitive coupling of strength g, one Rabi term suffices. We give the exact values of the physical parameters needed to implement such CNOT gates. The gate time and all possible Rabi frequencies are found to bemore » t={pi}/(2g) and {omega}{sub 1}/g={radical}(64n{sup 2}-1),n=1,2,3,.... Generation of a perfect CNOT gate in a system with inductive coupling, characterized by additional constant k, requires the presence of both Rabi terms. The gate time is again t={pi}/(2g), but now there is an infinite number of solutions, each of which is valid in a certain range of k and is characterized by a pair of integers (n,m), ({omega}{sub 1,2}/g)={radical}(16n{sup 2}-((k-1/2)){sup 2}){+-}{radical}(16m{sup 2}-((k+1/2)){sup 2}). We distinguish two cases, depending on the sign of the coupling constant: (i) the antiferromagnetic case (k{>=}0) with n{>=}m=0,1,2,... and (ii) the ferromagnetic case (k{<=}0) with n>m=0,1,2,.... We conclude with consideration of fidelity degradation by switching to resonance. Simulation of time evolution based on the fourth-order Magnus expansion reveals characteristics of the gate similar to those found in the exact case, with slightly shorter gate time and shifted values of the Rabi frequencies.« less
  • We experimentally demonstrate a high-fidelity visible-to-telecommunicationwavelength conversion of a photon by using a solid-state-based difference frequency generation. In the experiment, one half of a pico-second visible entangled photon pair at 780 nm is converted to a 1522-nm photon. Using superconducting single-photon detectors with low dark count rates and small timing jitters, we observed a fidelity of 0.93±0.04 after the wavelength conversion.
