"The book gives an impressive description of current experiments. Despite of the high density of information, the authors succeeded to describe the fundamental concepts and methods. As it contains numerous references and links, this book also forms a solid starting point for further studies."

Quoted from Physik Journal on the first edition

It′s a very good book – it′s by far the best textbook at this level, and will become the principal text for our new course.

Jonathan Jones

Oxford Centre for Quantum Computation

"The authors, experimantalists, being themselves involved in the realization of quantum computers, present with this book a didactically well formed introduction to quantum information processing, including computer architecture, tested and proposed schemes. Clearly, in order to offer this extensive material in a space of only just over 200 pages, the authors had restricted themselves to basic of relevant ideas. The latter are well selected and guide readers attention engagingly in chosen directions. ... This textbook has the advantage that it contains both, theoretical as well as experimental, features of quantum computing, that the exposition is well organized, and for beginners that it omits more advanced mathematical tools. It gives ... a broad overview ... It is an introduction for beginners, a good one, and can be well recommended as such."
