Efficient quantum programming using EASE gates on a trapped-ion quantum computer

Trapped-ion quantum computers are capable of exotic operations which entangle several qubits at once. One such powerful operation is the Efficient, Arbitrary, Simultaneously Entangling (EASE) gate.

The researchers showed that EASE gates make it drastically easier to implement circuit elements for universal quantum computation: An n-qubit Clifford circuit can be applied in only 6log(n) EASE gates, an n-qubit multiply-controlled NOT gate in 3n/2 EASE gates, and an n-qubit permutation in only six EASE gates.
