Qubits based on quantum dots have excellent prospects for scalable quantum technology due to their compatibility with standard semiconductor manufacturing. While early research focused on the simpler electron system, recent demonstrations using multi-hole quantum dots illustrated the favourable properties holes can offer for fast and scalable quantum control. Here, we establish a single-hole spin qubit in germanium and demonstrate the integration of single-shot readout and quantum control. We… Expand
Single-hole physics in GaAs/AlGaAs double quantum dot system with strong spin–orbit interaction

A four-qubit germanium quantum processor.
A four-qubit quantum processor based on hole spins in germanium quantum dots is demonstrated and coherent evolution is obtained by incorporating dynamical decoupling, a step towards quantum error correction and quantum simulation using quantum dots. Expand

From the strongly anisotropic leakage current in the spin blockade regime for a double dot, the full g-tensor is extracted and indicates a strong spin-orbit interaction along the nanowire, which may have originated from the interface inversion asymmetry in Ge hut wires. Expand
