We propose and demonstrate the sequential initialization, optical control, and readout of a single spin trapped in a semiconductor quantum dot. Hole spin preparation is achieved through ionization of a resonantly excited electron-hole pair. Optical control is observed as a coherent Rabi rotation between the hole and charged-exciton states, which is(More)
We show that by illuminating an InGaAs/GaAs self-assembled quantum dot with circularly polarized light, the nuclei of atoms constituting the dot can be driven into a bistable regime, in which either a thresholdlike enhancement or reduction of the local nuclear field by up to 3 T can be generated by varying the pumping intensity. The excitation power(More)
We report photoluminescence measurements on a single layer of site-controlled InAs quantum dots (QDs) grown by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) on pre-patterned GaAs(100) substrates with a 15 nm re-growth buffer separating the dots from the re-growth interface. A process for cleaning the re-growth interface allows us to measure single dot emission linewidths of(More)
Quantum teleportation can transfer information between physical systems, which is essential for engineering quantum networks. Of the many technologies being investigated to host quantum bits, photons have obvious advantages as 'pure' quantum information carriers, but their bandwidth and energy is determined by the quantum system that generates them. Here we(More)
We demonstrate the control with a dc-voltage of the environment-induced decoherence in a semiconductor quantum dot embedded in a gated field-effect device. The electrical control of the spectral diffusion dynamics governing the quantum dot decoherence induces various effects, and in particular a narrowing of the quantum dot emission spectrum on increasing(More)
The nature of the nano-scale environment presents a major challenge for solid-state implementation of spin-based qubits. In this work, a single electron spin in an optically pumped nanometer-sized III-V semiconductor quantum dot is used to control a macroscopic nuclear spin of several thousand nuclei, freezing its decay and leading to spin life-times(More)
A hole spin is a potential solid-state q-bit, that may be more robust against nuclear spin induced dephasing than an electron spin. Here we propose and demonstrate the sequential preparation, control and detection of a single hole spin trapped on a self-assembled InGaAs/GaAs quantum dot. The dot is embedded in a photodiode structure under an applied(More)
Epitaxial InAs quantum dots grown on GaAs substrate are being used in several applications ranging from quantum communications to solar cells. The growth mechanism of these dots also helps us to explore fundamental aspects of self-organized processes. Here we show that composition and strain profile of the quantum dots can be tuned by controlling in-plane(More)
