Progress towards quantum dot spin qubits in silicon
Susan CoppersmithUniversity of Wisconsin, Madison
Qubits, the quantum-mechanical analog of classical bits, are the fundamental building block of quantum computers, which have the potential to solve some problems that are intractable using classical computation.
Developing qubits in semiconductors that can be addressed and manipulated electrically is attractive because of the potential for scalability and for integration with classical electronics. This talk will discuss recent experimental progress towards the fabrication of spin qubits in silicon/silicon-germanium heterostructures.
