Fast One-Qubit Gates

Filed under: Uncategorized — rrtucci @ 7:19 pm

Recently, the NIST ion-trap group achieved an experimental result that is likely to be very useful for quantum computation: they were able to execute a one-qubit gate in 50 picosecond (that’s a blazing 20GHz), using as qubit a trapped Ytterbium ion.

Chad Orzel (Prof of experimental atomic/molecular/optical (AMO) physics at Union College in Schenectady, NY) is a dog lover (like me), plus a clear and well-informed explainer (unlike me). He has written an excellent blogpost (here) about the aforementioned NIST result
