Cavity control as a new quantum algorithms implementation treatment


Based on recent experiments [Nature 449, 438 (2007) and Nature Physics 6, 777 (2010)], a new approach for realizing quantum gates for the design of quantum algorithms was developed. Accordingly, the operation times of such gates while functioning in algorithm applications depend on the number of photons present in their resonant cavities. Multi-qubit algorithms can be realized in systems in which the photon number is increased slightly over the qubit number. In addition, the time required for operation is considerably less than the dephasing and relaxation times of the systems. The contextual use of the photon number as a main control in the realization of any algorithm was demonstrated. The results indicate the possibility of a full integration into the realization of multi-qubit multiphoton states and its application in algorithm designs. Furthermore, this approach will lead to a successful implementation of these designs in future experiments.
