Physics Seminar: An Introduction to Quantum Computing

Abstract: This introduction to quantum computing begins with a discussion of bra-ket notation and how bra-ket notation is used describe a simple two-level quantum mechanical qubit. Quantum qubits are typically controlled using an electromagnetic pulse and the corresponding unitary operator is identified as a gate. We will discuss several types of single-qubit and two-qubit gates and show how they can be used to construct a quantum circuit. As an example, we will develop an elementary circuit used to create an entangled Bell state and run the circuit in real time on the transmon based IBM quantum computers.
