Physics Seminar: Physics of Qubits for Quantum Computations

Dr. Michael Pak, AFIT

Abstract: A qubit can in principle be physically realized by any two-level quantum mechanical system. However, the quality of qubits made from many common quantum systems is too low to implement a practical quantum computer. In this talk some basic physics requirements for quantum systems to be used as qubits for quantum computing will be reviewed. We will discuss potential sources of error in quantum computations employing various natural and artificially constructed qubits, such as trapped ions, diamond NV defects, and superconducting qubits. One of the main constraints on physical systems usable as qubits is the availability of diverse entangling interactions. An overview of possible types of entangling gates for superconducting transmon qubits will be presented.
