  • The ''self-synchronization'' effect is studied, i.e., the exact coincidence of Josephson generation frequencies in intersecting superconducting bridges. A parametric interaction appears, which is due to the proximity effect, i.e., to the change in the order-parameter modulus in the region of the junction contact. The ''voltage locking'' region in the plane of the current-transport and current-control circuits is determined by computer-aided numerical calculations.
  • We consider quantum circuits made of controlled-NOT (CNOT) gates and single-qubit unitary gates and look for constructions that minimize the use of CNOT gates. We show, by means of an explicit quantum circuit, that three CNOT gates are necessary and sufficient in order to implement an arbitrary unitary transformation of two qubits. We also identify the subset of two-qubit gates that can be performed with only two CNOT gates and provide a simple characterization for them.
  • We give quantum circuits that simulate an arbitrary two-qubit unitary operator up to a global phase. For several quantum gate libraries we prove that gate counts are optimal in the worst and average cases. Our lower and upper bounds compare favorably to previously published results. Temporary storage is not used because it tends to be expensive in physical implementations. For each gate library, the best gate counts can be achieved by a single universal circuit. To compute the gate parameters in universal circuits, we use only closed-form algebraic expressions, and in particular do not rely on matrix exponentials.

  • We describe a general framework to study covariant symmetric broadcasting maps for mixed qubit states. We explicitly derive the optimal N{yields}M superbroadcasting maps, achieving optimal purification of the single-site output copy, in both the universal and phase-covariant cases. We also study the bipartite entanglement properties of the superbroadcast states.
