Measuring the photonic frequency qubit generated by an 171 Yb+ ion in a surface trap

Journal Article

We propose a novel qubit state measurement method for photonic frequency qubits using a Mach-Zehnder interferometer with unequal path lengths. A practical implementation for photons generated by 171Yb+ ions in a surface trap is described.
