Toward Realizable Quantum Computers


Beverland, Michael Edward (2016) Toward Realizable Quantum Computers. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/Z96M34SC.


The work in this thesis splits naturally into two parts: (1) experimentally oriented work consisting of experimental proposals for systems that could be used to implement quantum information tasks with current technology, and (2) theoretical work focusing on universal fault-tolerant quantum computers which we hope can be scaled as experimental capabilities continue to move forward.
