Presents both semiconducting and superconducting approaches to manipulating quantum coherence
Emphasizes the material and physical properties of semiconductors and superconductors relevant for their application to quantum coherence manipulation
Consolidates state-of-the-art information in this area only otherwise available in journal articles
This book features the proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute "Manipulating Quantum Coherence in Solid State Systems", held in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, August 2005, which presented a fundamental introduction to solid-state approaches to achieving quantum computation. This proceedings volume describes the properties of quantum coherence in semiconductor spin-based systems and the behavior of quantum coherence in superconducting systems.
Semiconductor spin-based approaches to quantum computation have made tremendous advances in the past several years. Coherent populations of spins can be oriented, manipulated and detected experimentally. Rapid progress has been made towards performing the same tasks on individual spins (nuclear, ionic, or electronic) with all-electrical means. Superconducting approaches to quantum computation have demonstrated single qubits based on charge eigenstates as well as flux eigenstates. These topics are presented in a pedagogical fashion by leading researchers in the fields of semiconductor-spin-based quantum coherence and of superconducting quantum coherence.
