Paper Abstract

We review our work on electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) as a potentially key enabling science for few-qubit Quantum Information Technology (QIT). EIT systems capable of providing two-qubit phase shifts as large as pi are possible in a condensed matter system such as NV-diamond, but the potentially large residual absorption necessarily arising under this condition significantly reduces the fidelity of a nonlinear optical gate based on EIT. Instead, we emphasize that a universal set of quantum gates can be constructed using EIT systems that provide cumulative phase shifts (and residual absorptions) that are much smaller than unity. We describe a single-photon quantum nondemolition detector and a two-photon parity gate as basic elements of a nonlinear optical quantum information processing system.
