Paper Abstract

We have demonstrated the coherent control of photonic bandgap (PBG) devices composed of a three-level atom embedded in three-dimensional PBG structures, which enables us to strongly suppress the loss of quantum information not only during its storage but also during its processing. We find that this ultralow-loss optical quantum information processing can be realized by generating the upper atomic level splitting inside the PBG and by tuning one of the split levels to a dark line in the emission spectrum (zeros in the spectrum at certain values of the emitted photon frequency). Furthermore, we show that the coherent control may provide a basis for the universal quantum logic gate operation in quantum computing.
