Quantum gate teleportation between separated zones of a trapped-ion processor

Author(s)

Large-scale quantum computers will inevitably require quantum gate operations between widely separated qubits, even within a single quantum information

Chained Bell inequality experiment with high-efficiency measurements

Author(s)
Ting Rei Tan, Stephen D. Erickson, Peter L. Bierhorst, Daniel Kienzler, Scott C. Glancy, Emanuel H. Knill, Dietrich G. Leibfried, David J. Wineland, Yong Wan
We report correlation measurements on two 9Be+ ions that violate a chained Bell inequality obeyed by any local-realistic theory. The correlations can be modeled

Preparation of entangled states through Hilbert space engineering

Yiheng Lin, John P. Gaebler, Florentin Reiter, Ting Rei Tan, Ryan S. Bowler, Yong Wan, Adam C. Keith, Emanuel H. Knill, Kevin J. Coakley, Dietrich G. Leibfried, David J. Wineland, Scott C. Glancy
Entangled states are a crucial resource for quantum-based technologies such as quantum computers and quantum communication systems. Exploring new methods for

High Fidelity Universal Gate Set for 9Be+ Ion Qubits

We report high-fidelity laser-beam-induced quantum logic gates on qubits comprised of hyperfine states in 9Be+ ions, achieved in part through a combination of

A strong loophole-free test of local realism

Author(s)
Lynden K. Shalm, Evan Meyer-Scott, B. G. Christensen, Peter L. Bierhorst, Michael A. Wayne, Deny Hamel, Martin J. Stevens, Thomas Gerrits, Scott C. Glancy, Michael S. Allman, Kevin J. Coakley, Shellee D. Dyer, Adriana E. Lita, Varun B. Verma, Joshua C. Bienfang, Alan L. Migdall, Yanbao Zhang, William Farr, Francesco Marsili, Matthew D. Shaw, Jeffrey Stern, Carlos Abellan, Waldimar Amaya, Valerio Pruneri, Thomas Jennewein, Morgan Mitchell, P. G. Kwiat, Richard P. Mirin, Emanuel H. Knill, Sae Woo Nam
We present a loophole-free violation of local realism using entangled photon pairs. We ensure that all relevant events in our Bell test are spacelike separated

Analysis of coincidence-time loopholes in experimental Bell tests

Author(s)
B. G. Christensen, A. Hill, P. G. Kwiat, Emanuel H. Knill, Sae Woo Nam, Kevin J. Coakley, Scott C. Glancy, Lynden K. Shalm, Y. Zhang
We apply a distance-based Bell-test analysis method ["Bell inequalities for continuously emitting sources" E. Knill et al. arXiv:14097732 (2014)] to three

Bell Inequalities for Continuously Emitting Sources

Author(s)
Emanuel H. Knill, Scott C. Glancy, Sae Woo Nam, Kevin J. Coakley, Yanbao Zhang
A common experimental strategy for demonstrating non-classical correlations is to show violation of a Bell inequality by measuring a continuously emitted stream

Optimizing Passive Quantum Clocks

Author(s)
Michael J. Mullan, Emanuel H. Knill
We describe protocols for passive atomic clocks based onquantum interrogation of the atoms. Unlike previous techniques, our protocols are adaptive and take

Building Quantum Computers

Author(s)
Emanuel H. Knill
Abstract: In theory, quantum computers can be used to efficiently factor numbers, quadratically speed up many search and optimization problems, and enable

Improving Quantum Clocks via Semidefinite Programming

Author(s)
Michael J. Mullan, Emanuel H. Knill
The accuracies of modern quantum logic clocks have surpassed those of standard atomic fountain clocks. These clocks also provide a greater degree of control, as

Randomized Benchmarking of Multiqubit Gates

John P. Gaebler, Adam M. Meier, Ting Rei Tan, Ryan S. Bowler, Yiheng Lin, David Hanneke, John D. Jost, Jonathan Home, Emanuel H. Knill, Dietrich G. Leibfried, David J. Wineland
As experimental platforms for quantum information processing continue to mature, characterization of the quality of unitary gates that can be applied to their

The non-Abelian Duality Problem

Author(s)
Emanuel H. Knill, E. Cobanera, Gerardo Ortiz
We exploit a new theory of duality transformations to construct dual representations of models incompatible with traditional duality transformations. Hence we

Magic-state distillation with the four-qubit code

Author(s)
Adam M. Meier, Bryan K. Eastin, Emanuel H. Knill
The distillation of magic states is an often-cited technique for enabling universal quantum computing once the error rate for a special subset of gates has been
