Experimentalist friendly QC books

I’ve just picked up a copy of this book from the library:


So far it’s looking quite good. I like it because of the large section in the later chapters dedicated to summarizing the field of experimental progress, whilst still maintaining a thorough introduction to the quantum mechanics, algebra and algorithms. The book covers NMR schemes, trapped ions, atomic (optical lattice) systems, Josephson junction and quantum dot realizations. It is also fairly up to date, being published earlier this year, which is always a bonus 🙂

Made me wonder though, I haven’t seen any published books (or sections of books) on AQC, or in fact books on schemes other than gate-model based systems, like cluster state or topological QC. I guess some of these fields are young compared to the gate model. Maybe there will be books soon…

If anyone knows of any such books, please feel free to point them out to me!
