Implementing multi-qubit entanglement of two-level systems inside a superconducting phase qubit
European Physical Journal D : Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics
The interaction between a superconducting phase qubit and the two-level systems locating inside the Josephson tunnel barrier is shown to be described by the XY model, which is naturally used to implement the iSWAP gate. With this gate, we propose a scheme to efficiently generate genuine multi-qubit entangled states of such two-level systems, including multipartite W state and cluster states. In particularly, we show that, with the help of the phase qubit, the entanglement witness can be used to
... efficiently detect the produced genuine multi-qubit entangled states. Furthermore, we analyze that the proposed approach for generating multi-qubit entangled states can be used in a wide class of candidates for quantum computation.
