class cirq.ISwapGate(*, exponent: Union[cirq.value.symbol.Symbol, float] = 1.0)[source]

Rotates the |01⟩-vs-|10⟩ subspace of two qubits around its Bloch X-axis.

When exponent=1, swaps the two qubits and phases |01⟩ and |10⟩ by i. More generally, this gate’s matrix is defined as follows:

ISWAP**t ≡ exp(+i π t (X⊗X + Y⊗Y) / 4)
≡ [1 0 0 0]
[0 cos(π·t/2) i·sin(π·t/2) 0] [0 i·sin(π·t/2) cos(π·t/2) 0] [0 0 0 1]
__init__(*, exponent: Union[cirq.value.symbol.Symbol, float] = 1.0) → None
