Optimal operating conditions of an entangling two-transmon gate
New Journal of Physics
We identify optimal operating conditions of an entangling two-qubit gate realized by a capacitive coupling of two superconducting charge qubits in a transmission line resonator (the so called "transmons"). We demonstrate that the sensitivity of the optimized gate to 1/f flux and critical current noise is suppressed to leading order. The procedure only requires a preliminary estimate of the 1/f noise amplitudes. No additional control or bias line beyond those used for the manipulation of
... pulation of individual qubits are needed. The proposed optimization is effective also in the presence of relaxation processes and of spontaneous emission through the resonator (Purcell effect).
