Qubit Gate And Producing A Generalized Controlled-Not Quantum Gate

NIST Inventors
Adam Kaufman and Alexey Gorshkov
Electric dipoles such as Rydberg atoms and polar molecules are among the most promising candidates for building a quantum computer. We propose a protocol that uses long-range dipole-dipole interactions in these systems to quickly implement a generalized controlled-not (CNOT) quantum gate, in which
