Abstract

We propose an architecture to perform quantum computation, using ballistic electrons as qubits and coupled quantum rings as quantum gates. In the proposed architecture two adjacent one-dimensional wires, creating a single qubit, are connected to two coupled quantum rings, where the required magnetic flux is provided by enclosed nano-sized magnets. The phase modulation of the wave function of the ballistic electrons under the Aharonov-Bohm effect is carefully designed to facilitate reprogrammable and dynamically controllable quantum gates. Arbitrary single-qubit quantum gates with high fidelity can be constructed on the basis of this architecture. (C) 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
