Title: Exact solutions for a universal set of quantum gates on a family of isospectral spin chains

Abstract

We find exact solutions for a universal set of quantum gates on a scalable candidate for quantum computers, namely an array of two-level systems. The gates are constructed by a combination of dynamical and geometrical (non-Abelian) phases. Previously these gates have been constructed mostly on nonscalable systems and by numerical searches among the loops in the manifold of control parameters of the Hamiltonian.

  • We show how one can implement any local quantum gate on specific qubits in an array of qubits by carrying adiabatically a Hamiltonian around a closed loop. We find the exact form of the loop and the Hamiltonian for implementing general one and two qubits gates. Our method is analytical and is not based on numerical search in the space of all loops.
  • We present a robust construction of a set of logic gates operating on a system of qubits encoded in the rovibrational eigenstates of an Na{sub 2} molecule using the optical adiabatic population transfer (APT) phenomenon. We demonstrate the operation of a complete universal gate set for quantum computation on a two-qubit system with gate fidelities approaching 99.99%. Like other APT-based processes, the method is robust against substantial fluctuations in the intensity of the laser pulse. Our construction is easily scalable to deal with a larger number of qubits. With the aid of the set of gates thus shown we maymore » construct pulse sequences for a wide class of quantum logic operations. We also show how to produce a representation of Bell states from a representation of product states with essentially perfect fidelity. Our scheme can be realized in all diatomic and polyatomic molecules that possess easily accessible and well characterized excited electronic states.« less
  • A method for exactly diagonalizing the XY Hamiltonian of an alternating open chain of spins s = 1/2 has been proposed on the basis of the Jordan-Wigner transformation and analysis of the dynamics of spinless fermions. The multiple-quantum spin dynamics of alternating open chains at high temperatures has been analyzed and the intensities of multiple-quantum coherences have been calculated. The problem of the transfer of a quantum state from one end of the alternating chain to the other is studied. It has been shown that the ideal transfer of qubits is possible in alternating chains with a larger number ofmore » spins than that in homogeneous chains.« less
  • We present a numerical study of the magnetization process of frustrated quantum spin-S chains with S =1,3/2,2 as well as the classical limit. Using the exact diagonalization and density-matrix renormalization techniques, we provide evidence that a plateau at one third of the saturation magnetization exists in the magnetization curve of frustrated spin-S chains with S1/2. Similar to the case of S=1/2, this plateau state breaks the translational symmetry of the Hamiltonian and realizes an up-up-down pattern in the spin component parallel to the external field. Our study further shows that this plateau exists both in the cases of an isotropicmore » exchange and in the easy-axis regime for spin-S=1, 3/2, and 2, but is absent in classical frustrated spin chains with isotropic interactions. We discuss the magnetic phase diagram of frustrated spin-1 and spin- 3/2 chains as well as other emergent features of the magnetization process such as kink singularities, jumps, and even-odd effects. A quantitative comparison of the one-third plateau in the easy-axis regime between spin-1 and spin-3 /2 chains on the one hand and the classical frustrated chain on the other hand indicates that the critical frustration and the phase boundaries of this state rapidly approach the classical result as the spin S increases.« less
  • We study a quantum state transfer between two qubits interacting with the ends of a quantum wire consisting of linearly arranged spins coupled by an excitation conserving, time-independent Hamiltonian. We show that, if we control the coupling between the source and the destination qubits and the ends of the wire, the evolution of the system can lead to an almost perfect transfer even in the case in which all nearest-neighbour couplings between the internal spins of the wire are equal.
