A new phase in quantum computation
2008 (English)In: Physics, ISSN 1943-2879, Vol. 1, no 35Article, review/survey (Other academic) Published
Large-scale quantum computers are hard to construct because quantum systems easily lose their coherence through interaction with the environment. Researchers have tried to avoid this problem by using geometric phase shifts in the design of quantum gates to perform information processing. Experiments and simulations have shown that these gates may be tolerant to certain types of faults, and may therefore be useful for robust quantum computation.
