- Limits of Classical Computers
- Quantum Mechanics
Classical vs. Quantum Experiments

Postulates of quantum Mechanics

- Qubit
- Quantum Gates
- Universal Quantum Computation
- Physical realization of Quantum Computers
- Perspective of Quantum Computers

The # of transistors per square inch had doubled every year since the invention of ICs.

- Reaching the SIZE & Operational time limits:
1- Quantum Physics has to be considered for device operation.

2- Technologies based on Quantum Physics could improve the clock-speed of microprocessors, decrease power dissipation & miniaturize more! (e.g. Superconducting

processors based on RSFQ, HTMT Technology)

Is it possible to do much more? Is there any new kind of information processing based on Quantum Physics?

- Study of information processing tasks can be accomplished using Quantum Mechanical systems.

⇨ “Decoherence”

- Two distinct modes of behavior (Wave-Particle
Duality):

1- Wave like 2- Particle-like

• Effect of Observations can not be ignored.

• Indeterminacy (Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle)

• Evolution and Measurement must be distinguished

- A qubit has two possible states:
- Unlike Bits, qubits can be in superposition state
- A qubit is a unit vector in 2D Vector Space
(2D Hilbert Space)

• are orthonormal computational basis

- We can assume that &

- A measurement yields 0 with probability & 1 with
probability

• Quantum state can not be recovered from qubit measurement.

• A qubit can be entangled with other qubits.

• There is an exponentially growing hidden quantum information.

- Qubits can be represented in Bloch Sphere.

- A Quantum Gate is any transformation in Bloch sphere allowed by laws of QM, that is a Unitary transformation.
- The time evolution of the state of a closed system is described by Schrodinger Eq.

- NOT gate:

• Hadamard gate:

• Phase gate:

- Classical Computing Theorem :
Any functions on bits can be computed from the composition of NAND gates alone, known as Universal

gate.

•Quantum Computing Theorem:

Any transformation on qubits can be done from composition of any two quantum gates.

e.g. 3 phase gates & 2 Hadamard gates, the universal computation is achieved.

• No cloning Theorem:

Impossible to make a copy from unknown qubit.

- A measurement can be done by a projection of each
in the basis states, namely and .

• Measurement can be done in any orthonormal and linear combination of states & .

• Measurement changes the state of the system & can not

provide a snapshot of the entire system.

- The state space of nqubits can be represented by Tensor
Product in Hilbert space with orthonormal base vectors. E.g.

states produced by Tensor Product is separable & measurement of one will not affect the other.

• Entangledstate can not be represented by Tensor Product

E.g.

C-NOT Gate

Any Multiple qubit logic gate may be composed from C-NOT

and single qubit gate.

C-NOT Gate is Invertible gates. There is not an irretrievable

loss of information under the action of C-NOT.

- Storage:Store qubits for long time
- Isolation:Qubits must be isolated fromenvironment to
decrease Decoherence

- Readout:Measuring qubits efficiently & reliably.
- Gates: Manipulate individual qubits & induce controlled interactions among them, to do quantum networking.
- Precision: Quantum networking & measurement should be implemented with high precision.

- A scalable physical system with well characterized qubits.
- The ability to initialize the state of the qubits.
- Long decoherence time with respect to gate operation time
- Universal set of quantum gates.
- A qubit-specific measurement capability.
