My research interest is about all-silicon quantum computers, theoretically and computationally. Especially, I want to know about the rule of topology in nuclear spin. Topological quantum computing has been studied in other schemes of quantum computers such as optical lattice and Josephson Junctions. I want to address the aspect of topology in nuclear spin of all-silicon quantum computer since this aspect is still rarely discussed.
In my point of view, the reason behind my idea is, as we can see from the recent development of quantum computers research, there are two mainstreams in the growth of quantum computer research: first one is theoretical approach and the second one is engineering approach. Theoretical approach has been done by them who have background in theoretical physics. This approach usually concerns about quantum hall effect, topology, Josephson Junctions, optical lattice and so on. In the other side, engineering approach is initiated by them who have engineering backgrounds such as electrical engineering and computer science. Typically, they start from the problem in classical computer science and try to solve it by quantum computers. For example, instead of observing the new semiconductor such as Josephson junctions and optical lattice, engineers pretend to propose all-silicon quantum computer as post-Moore’s Law.
I would like to reconcile this gap, since Prof. Itoh and Prof. Rod have very strong background in engineering (electrical engineering and computer science) while I have background in theoretical physics. The key idea of my research is hardware and software Quantum Error Correction in all-silicon quantum computers. I want to overcome the hardware problem with Kitaev’s idea and the software with Steane algorithms.
TQC is purely rooted from the idea of Alexei Kitaev (Caltech). Kitaev’s idea is definitely interesting. His approach can be very serious candidate for Quantum Error Correction and implementation of Quantum Algorithms. I try to apply “Topological Modular Functor” to nuclear spin scheme and also continue the idea of universal quantum computing which is based on permutation group.
The other frontiers of this area are Michael Freedman (Microsoft Research Center) and John Preskill (Caltech).
