iSwapGate

class iSwapGate[source]

iSWAP gate.

A 2-qubit XX+YY interaction. This is a Clifford and symmetric gate. Its action is to swap two qubit states and phase the \(|01\rangle\) and \(|10\rangle\) amplitudes by i.

Matrix Representation:

\[\begin{split}iSWAP = R_{XX+YY}(-\frac{\pi}{2}) = exp(i \frac{\pi}{4} (X{\otimes}X+Y{\otimes}Y)) = \begin{pmatrix} 1 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & i & 0 \\ 0 & i & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 \end{pmatrix}\end{split}\]

This gate is equivalent to a SWAP up to a diagonal.

\[\begin{split}iSWAP = \begin{pmatrix} 1 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 1 & 0 \\ 0 & 1 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 \end{pmatrix} . \begin{pmatrix} 1 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & i & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & i & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 \end{pmatrix}\end{split}\]
