A Synthetic Two-Spin Quantum Bit: g-Engineered Exchange-Coupled Biradical Designed for Controlled-NOT Gate Operations

Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 51, pp.9860-9864 (2012)DOI:10.1002/anie.201204489

A quantum gate: A system of two coupled electron spins that is useful for simple quantum computing operations has been prepared by synthesis of a biradical 1 and co-crystallization with an isomorphous host molecule. The two weakly exchange-coupled quantum bits (target qubit blue and control qubit red) span four electron spin states. The electron spin transition is denoted by two black arrows.
