Spin Qubits and Gates

Encoded Spin-qubits in Multi-quantum Dot Devices

The encoding of one spin-qubit in the state-space of more than one quantum dot is very promising since it allows qubit manipulations via the exchange interaction with fast quantum gates. Encoded spin-qubits have provided considerable advances on the road to spin-based quantum computing in recent years.

The encoded qubit in three singly-occupied quantum dots (the "exchange-only qubit") is the simplest system where full single-qubit control is possible via exchange interactions. We describe the coherence properties of this system for which the first experimental studies are now being published.

Encoded qubits in a double quantum dot system are also actively studied, in particular, the question which advantages multi-electron quantum dots provide over single-electron encodings.
