Quantum Computing Devices: Principles, Designs and Analysis
Applied Mathematics and Nonlinear Science Series, vol. 6 (Chapman & Hall, Boca Raton 2006)


    Covers the essential components in the design of a "real" quantum computer. The book explores contemporary and important aspects of quantum computation, particularly focusing on the role of quantum electronic devices as quantum gates.
    Largely self-contained and written in a tutorial style, this reference presents the major types of quantum computing devices: ion traps, cavity quantum electrodynamics (QED), linear optics, quantum dots, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUID), and neutral atom traps. It begins by explaining the fundamentals and algorithms of quantum computing, followed by the operations and formalisms of quantum systems. For each electronic device, the subsequent chapters discuss physical properties, the setup of qubits, control actions that produce the quantum gates that are universal for quantum computing, relevant measurements, and decoherence properties of the systems. The book also includes tables, diagrams, and figures that illustrate various data, uses, and designs of quantum computing.
    Chapters include: Two-Level Atoms and Cavity QED, Imperfect quantum operations, Quantum Logic with Cold, Trapped Atoms
