1.4.3 Synthesising rotations

Course subject(s) Module 1. Introducing the building blocks of a quantum computer

In some setups, experimentalists can only rotate along two axes of the Bloch sphere. In this video Ben will show you an example of how you can use these two rotation axes to achieve rotations around a third axis. He will do it both in vector form and in the Bloch sphere representation. Which do you think is the most convenient?
