SUMMARY:Designing Gates for a Spin-Based Quantum Computer\, R. G. Herb
Condensed Matter Seminar\, Daniel Zeuch\, Florida State
DESCRIPTION:After reviewing the basic notions of quantum computation w
ith electrons trapped in semiconductor quantum dots\, I focus on a com
puting scheme in which qubits are encoded using three spins each and a
rbitrary quantum gates are carried out by turning on and off\, or puls
ing\, the Heisenberg exchange Hamiltonian. While most work on finding
pulse sequences for two-qubit gates has been numerical\, I discuss seq
uences that were designed completely analytically [1\,2] and show\, in
particular\, the framework of the derivation [2] of the shortest know
n sequence for this particular scheme. At the end\, I draw parallels b
etween spin-based quantum computation and topological quantum computat
ion with non-Abelian anyons. I show that the basic problem of finding
two-qubit quantum gates\, addressed in [3]\, can be understood in simi
lar terms as the problem of finding two-qubit gate pulse sequences.
