We study the radio-frequency single-electron transistor (rf-SET) as a readout device for charge qubits. We measure the charge sensitivity of an rf-SET to be 6.3microe/sqrt[Hz] and evaluate the backaction of the rf-SET on a single Cooper-pair box. This allows us to compare the needed measurement time with the mixing time of the qubit imposed by the(More)
We calculate the spectral density of voltage fluctuations in a single-electron transistor (SET), biased to operate in a transport mode where tunneling events are correlated due to Coulomb interaction. The whole spectrum from low frequency shot noise to quantum noise at frequencies comparable to the SET charging energy (EC/h) is considered. We discuss the(More)
We review some basic facts about qubits and qubit processing. After a brief survey of solid-state qubits, we focus on quantized electrical circuits and superconducting qubits based on Josephson junctions. We review the general framework and indicate how the various qubits, such as the superconducting Cooper pair box charge qubit, the persistent current flux(More)
This work develops a generic software tool for simulation of the dynamics of sparse multi-terminal memristive networks. The simulator is coded on one platform and relatively compact for easy work-flow and future extensions. Due to its relatively small size it should be easy to transfer (re-program) it using other computer languages. Future applications of(More)
The conductance of monoatomic gold wires containing 3-7 gold atoms has been obtained from ab initio calculations. The transmission is found to vary significantly depending on the wire stretching and the number of incorporated atoms. Such oscillations are determined by the electronic structure of the one-dimensional (1D) part of the wire between the(More)
