BMS Institute of Technology and Management 22PHYS12 Department of Physics P a g e 1 | 27 Quantum computing Wave function in Ket notation A wave function in quantum physics is a mathematical description of the quantum state of an isolated quantum system. Denoted as . The wave function is a complex-valued probability amplitude, and the probabilities for the possible results of measurements made on the system can be derived from it.

The state vectors in different bases by means of function expansions. This is analogous to specifying an ordinary (Euclidean) vector by its components in various coordinate systems. The meaning of a vector is, of course, independent of the coordinate system chosen to represent its components. Similarly, the state of a microscopic system has a meaning independent of the basis in which it is expanded. In quantum mechanics, bra–ket notation, or Dirac notation, is used to denote quantum states. Bra–ket notation was effectively established in 1939 by Paul Dirac. A ket is of the form Mathematically it denotes a vector, in an abstract (complex) vector space and physically it represents a state of some quantum system.

The non-diagonal elements of a hermitian matrix are all complex numbers. The complex numbers in a hermitian matrix are such that the element of the ith row and jth column is the complex conjugate of the element of the jth row and ith column. Mathematically, a Hermitian matrix is defined as A square matrix, A = [aij]n × n such that (A*)T = A, where (A*)T = A† is the conjugate transpose of A.

In quantum mechanics, the conjugate transpose is referred to as the Hermitian adjoint of a matrix and is denoted by a dagger (†). The real analogue of a unitary matrix is an orthogonal matrix. Unitary matrices have significant importance in quantum mechanics because they preserve norms, and thus, probability amplitudes.
- 5. BMS Institute of Technology and Management 22PHYS12 Department of Physics P a g e 5 | 27 Principles of quantum information and quantum computing. Introduction to Quantum Computing Quantum computing is a rapidly-emerging technology that harnesses the laws of quantum mechanics to solve problems too complex for classical computers. Quantum theory explains the behavior of energy and material on the atomic and subatomic levels. Quantum computing uses subatomic particles, such as electrons or photons. Quantum bits, or qubits, allow subatomic particles to exist in more than one state (i.e., 1 and 0) at the same time. Unlike a normal computer bit, which can be either 0 or 1, a qubit can exist in a multidimensional state. Theoretically, linked qubits can "exploit the interference between their wave-like quantum states to perform calculations that might otherwise take millions of years. Classical computers today employ a stream of electrical impulses (1 and 0) in a binary manner to encode information in bits. This restricts their processing ability, compared to quantum computing. The power of quantum computers grows exponentially with more qubits. Classical computers that add more bits can increase power only linearly. Moore’s law& its end Gordon Moore, the co-founder of Intel, indicated that - due to the shrinking size of transistors to the nanoscale (allowing integrated circuits to be composed of more transistors, resulting in more powerful computer systems) - every year, twice as many transistors would be able to fit onto computer chips. Hence, Moore’s Law was born. After 1975, the estimate changed to a doubling of transistors every two years. Moore's law is the observation that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit (IC) doubles about every two years. Moore's law is an observation and projection of a historical trend rather than a law of physics. Engineers were able to consistently create computer systems/chips with double the number of transistors, resulting in a number of more advanced technologies being developed, from smart technology, to mobile technology, to wearable technology, to faster processors, to more robust computers, to faster/more efficient data centers like cloud computing. Engineers were able to dedicate time to develop more efficient nanotechnology systems whereby transistors went from being millimeters to nanometers. However, feats in engineering and physics have been pushed
- 6. BMS Institute of Technology and Management 22PHYS12 Department of Physics P a g e 6 | 27 to their limit, and while more power results in more resources and more abilities to carry out advanced tasks via computers, engineers are unable to keep pushing the limit on smaller transistors, and thus, computer systems may have reached their limit in transistor capacity and power. Hence, industry leaders are asserting that Moore’s Law has come to an end, and computers will no longer have many more transistors every year. Single particle quantum interference Quantum computing involves the concept of superposition. To understand the idea of superposition it is appropriate to know about an experiment which is concerned with a phenomenon know as single-particle quantum interference. In this experiment light from a source S falls upon an half-silvered mirror i.e., a mirror which reflects 50% of the incident light and transmits the rest 50% as shown in figure 1. The reflected light is detected by the detector D1, and the transmitted part is detected by D2. If we consider the light to be a stream of photons, then 50% of them will reach D1 and the rest 50% reach D2. If the source were to emit one photon at a slow rate, then as per probabilistic prediction, we may say that over a period of time after a number of photons were emitted, D1 would have received 50% of them and D2 the rest 50%. It means, each time a photon is emitted we assume that it is either reflected and travels along OY, or transmitted and travels along OX. Since a photon is quantised, we don’t consider it to split into two with one-half going along OY and other travelling along OX (i.e., at one time, the photon is detected by either D1 or D2, but never together). But because of the wave nature associated with the photon, the photon must a measurement is carried out it is said to collapse to cpllapse to only that path concerned to the measurement. There is a method to demonstrate this by extending the above experiment as follows. Let there be two fully silvered mirrors at two points A and B, and half silvered mirror at C such that the mirror A and B reflect the light (photons) exactly to the point C where another half silvered mirror lies. All the mirrors lie with their planes inclined at 45 to the incident light. The path length OACOCB.
- 7. BMS Institute of Technology and Management 22PHYS12 Department of Physics P a g e 7 | 27 With this arrangement, after a photon leaves the source and travels-up its path here also one expects that it will be detected by either D1 or D2. However, as per quantum mechanical considerations, it is always only the detector D1 which the photon reaches and never the detector D2. This effect is explained as follows. Everytime a photon leaves the source, the two sets of waves that represent the photon existing simultaneously along the two paths, would always cancel each other before reaching D2. But those which proceed to reach D1 will reinforce and thus will be detected there. This means that the photon has in reality travelled not one but both the paths simultaneously and underwent self interference to be detected only at D1. This experiment is known as single-particle quantum interference and the fact that it exists in both the paths (states) is considered superposition. Quantum superposition and concept of qubit In a classical computer, a bit is represented by a physical quantity with two states to represent 0 and 1. It can be the voltage in a circuit (e.g. 5 V for 1 and 0 V for 0). It can be the magnetization direction in a magnetic drive (e.g. up for 1 and down for 0). It can be the charge density in the charge storage layer in the flash memory (e.g. low for 1 and high for 0). In a quantum computer, the information is represented by qubits. Like the classical bit, each qubit still has two distinct states and we say that they are orthogonal to each other because they cannot exist with 100% certainty at the same time. We also call them the basis vectors or basis states most of the time. We can still label them as “0” and “1.” In addition to the two distinct states, a qubit may also have many other states which are the superposition of the two distinct states (or the basis states). This is what is fundamentally different from the classical bit. In
- 8. BMS Institute of Technology and Management 22PHYS12 Department of Physics P a g e 8 | 27 these states, the two distinct (orthogonal) basis states are allowed to exist at the same time with <100% certainty. Superposition is one of the fundamental operation principles in quantum computing. Superposition allows us to perform a calculation on multiple basis states at the same time, which is not possible in classical computing. We learned superposition in wave theory in which two wavelets can superimpose on each other. In electromagnetism, light can be polarized in any direction. Any linear polarization is just a linear combination of horizontal and vertical polarization. If we represent the horizontal polarization as a horizontal vector (Vx) and the vertical polarization as a vertical vector (Vy) any linear polarization, V, is just a linear combination of the two vectors. We can write y x V V V where α and β are just some numbers (coefficients) and Vx and Vy are the horizontal and vertical polarization unit vectors (which are basis vectors in this case), respectively. Vx and Vy are the orthogonal states in the system. There is a genius called Dirac and he decided to write in this way y x V V V This is called the Dirac ket notation. A qubit can be in a linear combination or superposition of the two states 0 and 1 as: 1 0 The number α and β are complex, but generally taken as real without any loss. In other words, a qubit is a vector in a two dimentional complex vector space. An example of a qubit state could be: 1 2 1 0 2 1 So a qubit can exist in a continuum states between 0 and 1 . The sum of probabilities of 0 and 1 adds to 1.
- 9. BMS Institute of Technology and Management 22PHYS12 Department of Physics P a g e 9 | 27 We can examine 1 0 to find out whether it is in the state 0 or 1 . When we measure a qubit, we get either the result 0 with probability 2 or 1 with probability 2 . Naturally, the sum 1 2 2 Since the probabilities must add up to one. So we can interpret this as the condition that the qubit’s state can be normalised to length 1. A qubit’s state is therefore, a unit vector in a two- dimentional complex vector space. 1 2 1 0 2 1 When measured gives the result of 0 for 5 . 0 2 1 2 1 2 or 50% of the time and a result of 1 for 5 . 0 2 1 2 1 2 or 50% of the time. We come to the important conclusion that a qubit can exist in a coherent superposition of states 0 and 1 only till it measured upon measurement, it gives only one of the states 0 or 1 . Single and two qubits. Extension to N qubit The quantum mechanical notation of Dirac (known as Ket notation), the states of a qubit are represented as 0 and 1 as a classical bit can be in the state of 0 and 1. Any quantum data processing can be done by one and two qubit gates acting on qubits. For example, if we consider the case of two-qubit XRO (also called controlled –NOT) gate, it flips the second input provided the first input is 1 . Otherwise stays unchanged. A superposition at the stage of input gives a superposition of outputs. This is recognised as entangled state. With two such qubits, the four states of two ordinary bits can be taken at once and represented as one state. i.e., 00, 01, 10, 11 Going further, if we consider a register composed of three classical bits, then the register can store only one out of eight possible configurations given by,
- 10. BMS Institute of Technology and Management 22PHYS12 Department of Physics P a g e 10 | 27 000, 001, 010, 011, 100, 101, 110, 111 One can show that, three qubits can store all eight numbers in a quantum superposition. If we keep adding qubits to the register we increase its capacity exponentially i.e., three qubit can store 8 different numbers. Four qubit can store 16 different numbers, and so on. This means, by using N qubits, any of N 2 states can be formed with just one state. Therefore, it becomes possible to perform super-parallel processing of problems which need to have N 2 inputs. This is the origin of its mega-calculating capacity. With the increase in the number of qubits, the effect grown exponentially. Ultimately for getting the answer, some kind of observation needs to be made on the quantum system serving as qubits. For the reson that the qubits are quantum mechanical nature, the answer comes out in probabilistic form. But when answer is probabilistic, it may come with different values at the end of different observations. To overcome this kind of uncertainty, a method called quantum interference will be made use of. In this method, operations are carried out such that we get answers with probabilities very near 1 (ie., it is almost certain). Classical and quantum information comparison Technically any information could be reliazed in terms of various distinctive steps that follows certain logic. For instance, in computer applications, information could be reduced in terms of bits (0 and 1). Further it could be processed in terms of logic gates (NOT, AND). But both bits and logic gates are not materials but electrical effects. However the effects manifest following certain physical laws which are classical in nature. This is classical information. Information could also be obtained through entities such as photons or nuclear spins which obey quantum information. But unlike classical information, quantum information cannot be read or copied without disturbing the system which bear them. The quantum information is realized through different possible states of a quantum system called qubits. Further processing is achieved through one-and two-qubit gate operation. It is called quantum computing. Differences between classical & quantum computing In classical computers, a bit is a fundamental unit of information, classically represented as 0 or 1 in the digital computer such as the magnetization on a hard disc or the charge on a
- 11. BMS Institute of Technology and Management 22PHYS12 Department of Physics P a g e 11 | 27 capacitor. A document, for example, comprises of n-characters stored in the hard drive of a typical computer which is accordingly described by a string of 8n 0’s and 1’s. In quantum computing the concept is fundamentally different. It is neigther a capacitor nor magnetization on the disc, but a quantum system such as an atom or a photon is used to encode the information. We can choose two electronic states of an atom or two different polarization orientations of light for the two states. But as per quantum mechanics, the atom, apart from the two distinct electroic states, can be also prepared in a state which is said to be a coherent superposition of both the states. i.e., the atom can exist in state as a 0, a 1, or simultaneously both as 0 and 1. It will not be known definitely, in which of these states the atom would be. But a number called probability factor associated with the corresponding states provides the probability of the atoms existence in each of these states. Since it follows quantum principles, it becomes a quantum system and is called a quantum bit or a qubit. Thus one qubit can encode at a time both 0 and 1. If we refer to the case of light, a qubit may correspond to the superposed state of horizontal and verticle polarization of photons apart from the two individual states of polarization. Hence qubit can be defined as follows. “A qubit is a quantum bit the counterpart in quantum computing to the binary digit or bit of classical computing. Just as bit is the basic unit of information in a classical computer, a qubit is the basic unit of information in a quantum computers”. Properties of a qubit A qubit can be in a superposed state of two states 0 and 1 . If measurements are carried out with a qubit in superposed state then the results that we get will be probabilistic. (not deterministic as we get in bits in classical computer). Qwing to the quantum nature, the qubit changes its state at once when subjected to measurement. This means, one canot copy information from qubits the way we do in the present computers, as there will be no similarity between the copy and the original. This is known as ‘no cloning principle’.

BMS Institute of Technology and Management 22PHYS12 Department of Physics P a g e 12 | 27 Representation of qubit by Bloch sphere The Bloch sphere is a geometrical representation of pure single-qubit states as a point on the unit sphere. Operations on single qubits commonly used in quantum information processing can be represented on the Bloch sphere. The geometric representation of a qubit is done with a Bloch sphere as follows; Given an orthonormal basis, any pure state of a two level quantum states can be written as a superposition of the basis vectors 0 and 1 . i.e., 1 0 where the coefficient of (or contribution from) each of the two basis vectors is a complex number. This means that the state is described by four real numbers. We also know from quantum mechanics that the total probability of the system has to be one: 1 or equivalently 1 2 We can write using the following representation: 1 2 sin 0 2 cos i e 1 2 sin sin cos 0 2 cos i i.e., 2 cos and 2 sin sin cos i Where 0 and 2 0

Similarly, a quantum computer is built from a quantum circuit containing wires and elementary quantum gates to transmit and manipulate quantum information. Single Qubit Gates There are single bit gates in classical computing like NOT gate, which work on only a single bit. Similarly, single qubit gates are those that act on only single quantum bit. Quantum NOT Gate An analogous quantum NOT gate for qubits can be defined as a process that takes the same state 0 to the state 1 and vice versa and is the quantum analogues for the NOT gate. However in case of superposition, the quantum NOT gate acts linearly in that the sate 1 0 is taken to the state 0 1 so that the roles of 0 and 1 states have been interchanged.

A is usually refered to as the control qubit and B as the target qubit. If the control qubit is 0,then the target qubit is not altered. If the control qubit is 1, then the target qubit is transformed. Hoever, the control qubit remains unaltered in both the cases. Controlled gate, CNOT Gate, (Discussion for 4 different input states).

Any classical circuit can be replaced by an equivalent circuit containing only reversible element, by using a reversible gate called Toffoli Gate. Fig. Toffoli gate The Toffoli gate has three input bits ( a , b and c ) and three output bits ( a , b and c ). The first two bits are control bits which remain unaffected by the action of the Toffoli gate. The third is the target bit which is inverted if both the control bits are 1; else it is left unchanged.
