Spins in few-electron quantum dots
The canonical example of a quantum-mechanical two-level system is spin. The simplest picture of spin is a magnetic moment pointing up or down. The full quantum properties of spin become apparent inExpand

Signatures of Majorana Fermions in Hybrid Superconductor-Semiconductor Nanowire Devices
Majoranas Arrive When a negatively charged electron meets a positron—its positively charged antiparticle—they annihilate each other in a flash of gamma rays. A Majorana fermion, on the other hand, isExpand

Driven coherent oscillations of a single electron spin in a quantum dot
The ability to control the quantum state of a single electron spin in a quantum dot is at the heart of recent developments towards a scalable spin-based quantum computer. In combination with theExpand

Single-shot read-out of an individual electron spin in a quantum dot
Spin is a fundamental property of all elementary particles. Classically it can be viewed as a tiny magnetic moment, but a measurement of an electron spin along the direction of an external magneticExpand

Spin–orbit qubit in a semiconductor nanowire
Motion of electrons can influence their spins through a fundamental effect called spin–orbit interaction. This interaction provides a way to control spins electrically and thus lies at the foundationExpand

Low-temperature fate of the 0.7 structure in a point contact: a Kondo-like correlated state in an open system.
Besides the usual conductance plateaus at multiples of 2e(2)/h, quantum point contacts typically show an extra plateau at approximately 0.7(2e(2)/h), believed to arise from electron-electronExpand
