Quantum computing requires a set of universal quantum gates. The standard set includes single quantum bit (**qubit**) gates and the controlled-NOT (CNOT) which is the analog of the classical XOR gate. It flips the state of the target **qubit** conditioned on the state of the control **qubit**. We investigated the possibility of implementing a CNOT logic gate using magnetically coupled impurity spins of diamond, namely the electron spin-1 carried by the nitrogen-vacancy color center and the electron spin-12 carried by a nearby nitrogen atom in substitutional position (P1 center). It is shown that a 96ns gate time with a high-fidelity can be realized by means of pulsed electron spin resonance spectroscopy....(Color online) |A|2 is the probability of finding the spin system in the state |⇓↓〉. It **oscillates** at the high **frequency** D (=2.88GHz). The **frequency** of the beats is χ/2 (=16.7MHz). The amplitude of **oscillations** is also modulated by an additional cosine wave signal of **frequency** χ (see text). |C|2 is the probability of finding the spin system in the state |0↓〉. It **oscillates** at the low **frequency** χ. It is almost zero in the time interval 90–100ns. The probability of finding spin system in the state |⇑↓〉, |B|2, has the same **oscillations** than |A|2 but it is anti-phase (see Fig. 3).
...Ideal truth table and schematic representation of a two-**qubit** CNOT gate irradiated by a sequence of two microwave π/2-pulses of equal width t and a variable waiting time between pulses τ. In the text, x and y are the states of two impurity spins of diamond, namely the spin-12 carried by the P1 center and the spin-1 carried by the NV−1 color center. The symbol ⊕ is the addition modulo 2, or equivalently the XOR operation.
...(Color online) NV−1 Rabi **oscillations**. Control **qubit** down: blue, red and green lines correspond, respectively, to the time evolution of |A|2, |B|2 and |C|2, i.e., the probabilities of finding the spin system in the state |⇓↓〉, |⇑↓〉 and |0↓〉. Control **qubit** up: red, blue and green lines represent, respectively, |A′|2, |B′|2 and |C′|2, i.e., the probabilities of finding the spin system in the state |⇓↑〉, |⇑↑〉 and |0↑〉, i.e., |A′|2=|B|2, |B′|2=|A|2 and |C′|2=|C|2 (see text). Fig. 4 gives details in the interval 60–120ns. They can also be revealed by a zoom in.

Several quantum-mechanical correlations, notably, quantum entanglement, measurement-induced nonlocality and Bell nonlocality are studied for a two **qubit**-system having no mutual interaction. Analytical expressions for the measures of these quantum-mechanical correlations of different bipartite partitions of the system are obtained, for initially two entangled **qubits** and the two photons are in their vacuum states. It is found that the **qubits**-fields interaction leads to the loss and gain of the initial quantum correlations. The lost initial quantum correlations transfer from the **qubits** to the cavity fields. It is found that the maximal violation of Bell’s inequality is occurring when the quantum correlations of both the logarithmic negativity and measurement-induced nonlocality reach particular values. The maximal violation of Bell’s inequality occurs only for certain bipartite partitions of the system. The **frequency** detuning leads to quick **oscillations** of the quantum correlations and inhibits their transfer from the **qubits** to the cavity modes. It is also found that the dynamical behavior of the quantum correlation clearly depends on the **qubit** distribution angle. ...

We present a system composed of two flux **qubits** and a transmission-line resonator. Instead of using the rotating wave approximation (RWA), we analyze the system by the adiabatic approximation methods under two opposite extreme conditions. Basic properties of the system are calculated and compared under these two different conditions. Relative energy-level spectrum of the system in the adiabatic displaced **oscillator** basis is shown, and the theoretical result is compared with the numerical solution....(Color online.) Schematic diagram of the displaced **oscillator** basis. The horizontal axis x′=x2mω0ℏ. All three wells maintain the same harmonic character, and usual eigenstates as well. The equilibrium position of the left (or the right) well is shifted by a specific constant. The shift direction is to the left (or right) when the **qubits** are in |+〉=|e1,e2〉 (or |−〉=|g1,g2〉). The middle potential well which is double degenerate corresponds to non-displaced case in which the states of the two **qubits** are opposite, i.e., |0〉 (|g1,e2〉 or |e1,g2〉), and the equilibrium position is higher than the others. The eigenstates which have the same value of n in the left well are degenerate with that in the right well.

(b) Schematic graph of the system. Two identical **qubits** (i.e. parameters Δ, ϵ, energy-level splitting Eq and coupling strength g for both **qubits** are of the same value) viewed as a two-level system with ground state |g〉 and excited state |e〉, are coupled to a harmonic **oscillator** whose characteristic **frequency** is ω0.

**Qubit**...Fundamental conservation laws mandate parameter-free generic mechanisms of decoherence of quantum **oscillations** in double-well systems. We consider two examples: tunneling of the magnetic moment in nanomagnets and tunneling between macroscopic current states in SQUIDs. In both cases the decoherence occurs via emission of phonons and photons at the **oscillation** **frequency**. We also show that in a system of identical **qubits** the decoherence greatly increases due to the superradiance of electromagnetic and sound waves. Our findings have important implications for building elements of quantum computers based upon nanomagnets and SQUIDs. ...

The sketch of the **qubit**–detector systems considered in the paper. The **qubit** (two coupled quantum dots: x and y) is coupled electrostatically via U parameter with one of the detector QDs. Panels A, B and C correspond to the single-QD, double-QD and triple-QD detectors, respectively.
...**Qubit** QD occupations, nx(t), versus time for the DQD (TQD) detector – curves a–c (d, e) and for different initial conditions. Curves a and d: **qubit** is ‘frozen’ in the state nx=0,ny=1 until t=40 when the occupancies of all detector QDs achieve their steady state values. Curves b and e: **qubit** is ‘frozen’ in the state nx=0,ny=1 and also n2=n3=0 until t=40 when the occupancy of the first detector QD, n1, achieves its steady state value. Curve c: all couplings in the **qubit**–detector system are switched on at t=40 (i.e. nx=0,ny=1, n1=n2=0 for t<40). The other parameters: Vxy=4, U=4, Vij=0.5, Γ=1, εi=0 and μL=−μR=20.
...The time evolution of a charge **qubit** coupled electrostatically with different detectors in the forms of single, double and triple quantum dot linear systems in the T-shaped configuration between two reservoirs is theoretically considered. The correspondence between the **qubit** quantum dot **oscillations** and the detector current is studied for different values of the inter-dot tunneling amplitudes and the **qubit**–detector interaction strength. We have found that even for a **qubit** coupled with a single QD detector, the coherent beat patterns appear in the **oscillations** of the **qubit** charge. This effect is more evident for a **qubit** coupled with double or triple-QD detectors. The beats can be also observed in both the detector current and the detector quantum dot occupations. Moreover, in the presence of beats the **qubit** **oscillations** hold longer in time in comparison with the beats-free systems with monotonously decaying **oscillations**. The dependence of the **qubit** dynamics on different initial occupations of the detector sites (memory effect) is also analyzed....Charge **qubit**...The nearby **qubit** QD occupation, nx(t), as a function of time for the triple-QDs detector shown in Fig. 1C for different values of the **qubit** tunneling amplitude Vxy=1,2 and 4, respectively. The upper (bottom) panel corresponds to μL=−μR=1 (μL=−μR=10). The other parameters are εi=0, V12=V23=1, Vxy=4, U=4 and the initial conditions as in Fig. 2.
...Nearby **qubit** QD occupation, nx(t), as a function of time for the triple-QD detector (see Fig. 1C) for different values of U parameter: U=0,2,3,4 and 6, respectively. The bias voltage μL=−μR=10, other parameters and initial conditions as in Fig. 6.
...Nearby **qubit** QD occupation, nx(t), as a function of time for different forms of the detector depicted in Fig. 1. The upper (bottom) panel corresponds to the ΓL=ΓR=Γ=1 (Γ=0.2). The tunneling coupling between QDs is V=1 for the detector and Vxy=4 for the **qubit**, energy levels of all QDs are equal to εi=0, μL=−μR=10 and U=4. The **qubit** was ‘frozen’ in the configuration nx=0, ny=1 for t<15, i.e. until the detector QD occupancies and currents jL and j12 achieved their stationary values. The curves B and C are shifted down by 1 and 2 for clarity.

Flux **qubit**...Example of the dynamics for the symmetric case ε=0, where the **oscillator** **frequency** is in resonance with the TSS **frequency**, i.e., Ω=Δ0. Parameters are: g=0.18Δ0, κ=0.014 (→α=0.004), kBT=0.1ℏΔ0. QUAPI parameters are M=12, K=1, Δt=0.06/Δ0.
...Sz(ω) for two values of the **oscillator** **frequency** Ω. Parameters are: ε=0, g=0.07Δ0, κ=0.014, kBT=0.1ℏΔ0.
...Main: Dephasing rates corresponding to peak 1 and peak 2 in the Figs. 1 and 3 as a function of the HO **frequency** Ω. The parameters are: ε=0, g=0.07Δ0, κ=0.014, kBT=0.1ℏΔ0. Inset: Same for stronger damping κ=0.02 with α=0.01=const. (like in [15]). This implies that with varying Ω also g is changed.
...We investigate the dynamics of the spin-boson model when the spectral density of the boson bath shows a resonance at a characteristic **frequency** Ω but behaves Ohmically at small **frequencies**. The time evolution of an initial state is determined by making use of the mapping onto a system composed of a quantum mechanical two-state system (TSS) which is coupled to a harmonic **oscillator** (HO) with **frequency** Ω. The HO itself is coupled to an Ohmic environment. The dynamics is calculated by employing the numerically exact quasiadiabatic path-integral propagator technique. We find significant new properties compared to the Ohmic spin-boson model. By reducing the TSS-HO system in the dressed states picture to a three-level system for the special case at resonance, we calculate the dephasing rates for the TSS analytically. Finally, we apply our model to experimentally realized superconducting flux **qubits** coupled to an underdamped dc-SQUID detector. ...

...Schematic representation of two interacting **qubits** formed by two DQDs with one excess electron in each **qubit**. The broken lines correspond to the Coulomb interaction U between the electrons localized on the neighboring QDs of both **qubits** and V denotes the interdot tunneling matrix element.
...Charge **oscillations** ... We have studied the electron dynamics in different geometrical arrangements of the two coupled double quantum dot structures. Applying the equation of motion method for appropriate correlation functions the occupation probabilities of different quantum dots of the considered system has been theoretically investigated. The numerical calculations were performed for different forms of the time-dependent tunneling amplitudes and quantum dot energy levels. We found, among others, that under some conditions for the tunneling amplitudes changed in the form of Gaussian pulses it is possible to localize the electron in a controlled manner on the given dot of the considered system.
