Quantum process tomography is a procedure by which the unknown dynamical
evolution of an open quantum system can be fully experimentally characterized.
We demonstrate explicitly how this procedure can be implemented with a nuclear
magnetic resonance quantum computer. This allows us to measure the fidelity of
a controlled-not logic gate and to experimentally investigate the error model
for our computer. Based on the latter analysis, we test an important assumption
underlying nearly all models of quantum error correction, the independence of
errors on different qubits.
