Paper Abstract

A scalable multatom entangled system, capable of high-performance quantum computations, can be realized by resonant dipole-dipole interacting dopants in a solid state host. In one realization, the qubits are represented by ground and subradiant states of effective dimers formed by pairs of closely spaced two-level systems (TLS). Such qubits are highly robust against radiative decay. The two-qubit entanglement in this scheme relies on coherent excitation exchange between the dimers by external laser fields. This scheme is challenging because of the nanosize control and addressability it requires. Another realization involves dipole-dipole interacting TLS whose resonance frequency lies in a photonic band gap of a dielectric photonic crystal. A sequence of abrupt changes of the resonance frequency can produce controlled entanglement (logic gates) with improved protection from radiation decay and decoherence.
