# YGate¶

class YGate(label=None)[source]

The single-qubit Pauli-Y gate ($$\sigma_y$$).

Matrix Representation:

$\begin{split}Y = \begin{pmatrix} 0 & -i \\ i & 0 \end{pmatrix}\end{split}$

Circuit symbol:

     ┌───┐
q_0: ┤ Y ├
└───┘


Equivalent to a $$\pi$$ radian rotation about the Y axis.

Note

A global phase difference exists between the definitions of $$RY(\pi)$$ and $$Y$$.

$\begin{split}RY(\pi) = \begin{pmatrix} 0 & -1 \\ 1 & 0 \end{pmatrix} = -i Y\end{split}$

The gate is equivalent to a bit and phase flip.

$\begin{split}|0\rangle \rightarrow i|1\rangle \\ |1\rangle \rightarrow -i|0\rangle\end{split}$

Create new Y gate.
