R1 operation


This documentation refers to the Classic QDK, which has been replaced by the Modern QDK.

Please see https://aka.ms/qdk.api for the API documentation for the Modern QDK.

Namespace: Microsoft.Quantum.Intrinsic

Package: Microsoft.Quantum.Type2.Core

Applies a rotation about the $\ket{1}$ state by a given angle.

operation R1 (theta : Double, qubit : Qubit) : Unit is Adj + Ctl


\begin{align} R_1(\theta) \mathrel{:=} \operatorname{diag}(1, e^{i\theta}). \end{align}


theta : Double

Angle in radians about which the qubit is to be rotated.

qubit : Qubit

Qubit to which the gate should be applied.

Output : Unit


Equivalent to:

R(PauliZ, theta, qubit);
R(PauliI, -theta, qubit);
