Detuning-modulated composite scheme for high-fidelity quantum integrated photonics Dr. Haim Suchowski, Associate Professor, Department of Condensed Matter Physics, School of Physics and Astronomy, Tel Aviv University
Quantum information processing (QIP) relies on high-ﬁdelity quantum state preparation and accurate unitary operations; this presents a challenge in practical realizations where the permissible error of quantum operations is smaller than 103. Thus, even minor systematic errors, i.e., due to imperfections in fabrication or the experimental control knobs, reduce the ﬁdelity of state transfer below the fault-tolerant threshold. A powerful tool to correct such errors is composite pulses (CPs), which are a sequence of pulses with different areas or phases that implement accurate and robust quantum gates. While these traditional CPs were developed in the ﬁeld of nuclear magnetic resonance, these are not applicable to correct unavoidable fabrication errors in Integrated photonic circuits. This is mainly because existing sequences require control of the coupling phase, which is a real-valued parameter in integrated photonics. Also, current solutions do not account for the stochastic nature of fabrication noise.
In our research, we introduce the detuning-modulated composite control method that offers a robust QIP for integrated photonic systems. The scheme allows the correction of errors in various parameters, achieving ﬁdelity above the QI threshold 103. In my talk, I will introduce the scheme and share with you our recent numerical and experimental achievements in integrated photonic circuits, where detuning-modulated CPs obtain remarkable error tolerance in qubit inversions as well as accurate unitary operations for single and two-qubit operations, promising for advancing QIP technologies due to their scalability and on-chip integration capacity.
