This thesis presents a spectroscopic study of the 7F0 ---t5D0 transition of Eu3+ in EuC13 ·6H2 0,
which is used to evaluate the potential performance of a quantum com puting system implemented in
EuCla·6H2 0 and, more generally, in stoichiometric rare earth crystals.
EuC13 ·6H2 0 has one of the narrowest optical inhomogeneous linewidths of any solid but this
linewidth is shown to be still much larger than that required for practical quantum computing in a
rare earth crystal. To assess...[Show more]
