The Temple of Quantum Computing
by Riley T. Perry
Number of pages: 250
In quantum computers we exploit quantum effects to compute in ways that are faster or more efficient than, or even impossible, on conventional computers. Quantum computers use a specific physical implementation to gain a computational advantage over conventional computers. Properties called superposition and entanglement may, in some cases, allow an exponential amount of parallelism. Also, special purpose machines like quantum cryptographic devices use entanglement and other peculiarities like quantum uncertainty.

We present the principles behind quantum key distribution and discuss a few well-known QKD protocols. We focus more on the implementation of QKD protocols rather than security analysis. Another topic covered here is the security of QKD systems.

These notes will present a brief introduction to the basic theoretical concepts behind the 'second quantum revolution'. They also provide an introduction to 'circuit QED', which offers an architecture for constructing quantum information processors.
