Entanglement and Transfer of Quantum Information

Interfacing quantum optical and solid state qubits

Authors: Lin Tian (Univ Innsbruck), Peter Rabl (Univ Innsbruck), Rainer Blatt (Univ Innsbruck), Peter Zoller (Univ Innsbruck)


We present a generic model of coupling quantum optical qubits and solid state qubits, and the corresponding transfer protocols. The example discussed is a trapped ion coupled to a superconducting charge qubit (single Cooper pair box). To enhance the coupling and achieve compatibility between the different experimental setups we introduce a superconducting cavity as the connecting element.
