Spin qubits based on interacting spins in double quantum dots have been demonstrated successfully. Readout of the qubit state involves a conversion of spin to charge information, which is universally achieved by taking advantage of a spin blockade phenomenon resulting from Pauli's exclusion principle. The archetypal spin blockade transport signature in(More)
Tunneling in a quantum coherent structure is not restricted to only nearest neighbors. Hopping between distant sites is possible via the virtual occupation of otherwise avoided intermediate states. Here we report the observation of long-range transitions in the transport through three quantum dots coupled in series. A single electron is delocalized between(More)
Individual and coupled quantum dots containing one or two electrons have been realized and are regarded as components for future quantum information circuits. In this Letter we map out experimentally the stability diagram of the few-electron triple dot system, the electron configuration map as a function of the external tuning parameters, and reveal(More)
We report the first experimental realization of a semiconductor triple quantum dot system in a few electrons regime. Charging properties of this "artificial tri-atom" are studied using non-invasive charge detection technique. The most fundamental configuration was initialized in which a single electron is shared resonantly between the three dots and also(More)
Qubits based on the singlet (S) and the triplet (T(0), T(+)) states in double quantum dots have been demonstrated in separate experiments. It has been recently proposed theoretically that under certain conditions a quantum interference could occur from the interplay between these two qubit species. Here we report experiments and modeling that confirm these(More)
Hole transport experiments were performed on a gated double quantum dot device defined in a p-GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure with a single hole occupancy in each dot. The charging diagram of the device was mapped out using charge detection confirming that the single hole limit is reached. In that limit, a detailed study of the two-hole spin system was(More)
Together with longer production periods, the commercial transition to day-neutral strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa) varieties has favored the development of diseases such as powdery mildew (Podosphaera aphanis) that thrives in late summer-early fall. In an attempt to find alternative solutions to fungicides currently employed to curb the disease, we wanted(More)
An ozonization system (Ozomax OZO 6VTT, IGT limited, Ontario, Canada) was installed in a commercial plastic-covered greenhouse in Danville, Quebec, Canada ( to study the effects of the disinfection and recirculation of the nutrient solution in a tomato crop. The ozonization system was compared to a conventional growing system where the(More)
We present a theory of spin-selective Aharonov-Bohm oscillations in a lateral triple quantum dot. We show that to understand the Aharonov-Bohm (AB) effect in an interacting electron system within a triple quantum dot molecule (TQD) where the dots lie in a ring configuration requires one to not only consider electron charge but also spin. Using a Hubbard(More)
Telegraphic noise is one of the most significant problems that arises when making sensitive measurements with lateral electrostatic devices. In this paper we demonstrate that a wafer which had only produced devices with significant telegraph noise problems can be made to produce 'quiet' devices if a thin insulator layer is placed between the gates and the(More)
