On the Design of Molecular Excitonic Circuits for Quantum Computing: The Universal Quantum Gates


This manuscript presents a theoretical strategy for encoding elementary quantum computing operations into the design of molecular excitonic circuits. Specifically, we show how the action of a unitary transformation of coupled two-level systems can be equivalently represented by the evolution of an exciton in a coupled network of dye molecules. We apply this strategy to identify the geometric parameters for circuits that perform universal quantum logic gate operations. We quantify the design space for these circuits and how their performance is affected by environmental noise.
