We introduce an always-on, exchange-only qubit made up of three localized semiconductor spins that offers a true “sweet spot” to fluctuations of the quantum dot energy levels.
Superconducting circuits offer tremendous design flexibility in the quantum regime culminating most recently in the demonstration of few qubit systems supposedly approaching the threshold for fault-tolerant quantum information processing. Competition in the solid-state comes from semiconductor qubits, where nature has bestowed some very useful properties which can be utilized for spin qubit based quantum computing. […]
Superconducting circuits are exceptionally flexible, enabling many different devices from sensors to quantum computers. Separately, epitaxial semiconductor devices such as spin qubits in silicon offer more limited device variation but extraordinary quantum properties for a solid-state system. It might be possible to merge the two approaches, making single-crystal superconducting devices out of a semiconductor by […]
The spin of an electron in silicon may act as an information carrier in future information technologies, from quantum computers to spintronics. For quantum information applications, the spin of cold localized electrons in silicon can make a good quantum memory due to the purifiability of the spin environment (a spin-0 nuclear isotope is available) and […]
A new era of physics careers in industry is about to begin, based on the quantum information science/technology (QIS/T) revolution. Whether this statement is true, or can be made to be true, is something we should consider. From my viewpoint, the chances are improving, but there are still roadblocks.
As physics and engineering extend their reach to the control of single excitations of nature, we gain the ability to explore and even design the interaction of matter and energy in fundamentally new ways. One of the most interesting opportunities this presents is controllable interactions between many quantum particles — such as electrons — which is traditionally the realm of condensed matter physics. The questions we asked ourselves were these: Can we also do this with light? Can it be useful? We show that the answer is YES!
