Entangling distant solid-state spins via thermal phonons.

Shaoliang Zhang, Ralf Betzholz, Jianming Cai, Puhao Cao

The implementation of quantum entangling gates between qubits is essential to achieve scalable quantum computation. Here, we propose a robust scheme to realize an entangling gate for distant solid-state spins via a mechanical oscillator in its thermal equilibrium state. By appropriate Hamiltonian engineering and usage of a protected subspace, we show that the proposed scheme is able to significantly reduce the thermal effect of the mechanical oscillator on the spins. In particular, we demonstrate that a high entangling gate fidelity can be achieved even for a relatively high thermal occupation. Our scheme can thus relax the requirement for ground-state cooling of the mechanical oscillator, and may find applications in scalable quantum information processing in hybrid solid-state architectures.
