class cirq.google.SycamoreGate[source]

The Sycamore gate is a two-qubit gate equivalent to FSimGate(π/2, π/6).

The unitary of this gate is

[[1, 0, 0, 0],
 [0, 0, -1j, 0],
 [0, -1j, 0, 0],
 [0, 0, 0, exp(- 1j * π/6)]]
This gate can be performed on the Google’s Sycamore chip and
is close to the gates that were used to demonstrate quantum
supremacy used in this paper:
__init__()[source]
Args:
theta: Swap angle on the |01⟩ |10⟩ subspace, in radians.
Determined by the strength and duration of the XX+YY
interaction. Note: uses opposite sign convention to the
iSWAP gate. Maximum strength (full iswap) is at pi/2.
phi: Controlled phase angle, in radians. Determines how much the
|11⟩ state is phased. Note: uses opposite sign convention to
the CZPowGate. Maximum strength (full cz) is at pi/2.
