Coherent electron displacement is a conventional strategy for processing quantum information, as it enables to interconnect distinct sites in a network of atoms. The efficiency of the processing relies on the precise control of the mechanism, which has yet to be established. Here, we theoretically demonstrate a new route to drive the electron displacement on a timescale faster than that of the dynamical distortion of the electron wavepacket by utilizing attosecond single-cycle pulses.

Femtosecond Single Cycle Pulses Enhanced the Efficiency of High Order Harmonic Generation
A control scheme for enhancing the efficiency of HHG process induced by an intense near-infrared (NIR) multi-cycle laser pulse based on introducing an infrared (IR) single-cycle pulse and exploiting its characteristic feature that manifests by a non-zero displacement effect to generate high-photon energy.
Probing multipartite entanglement, coherence and quantum information preservation under classical Ornstein–Uhlenbeck noise
We address entanglement, coherence, and information protection in a system of four non-interacting qubits coupled with different classical environments, namely: common, bipartite, tripartite, and
Infrared single-cycle pulse induced high-energy plateaus in high-order harmonic spectroscopy
Motivated by the emerging experiments [e.g. \textit{Z. Nie et al. Nat. Photon. \textbf{12}, 489 (2018)}] on producing infrared (IR) single cycle pulses in the spectral region 5 - 14 $\mu m$, we


Coherent imaging of an attosecond electron wave packet
It is shown, by using photoionization of neon, that a train of attosecond pulses synchronized with an infrared laser field can be used to disentangle these angular momentum components.
Coherent long-distance displacement of individual electron spins
It is demonstrated that individual electron spins can be displaced coherently over a distance of 5 µm, opening the route towards long-range interaction between distant spin qubits.
Fast spin information transfer between distant quantum dots using individual electrons.
It is demonstrated that spin information carried by one or two electrons can be transferred between two quantum dots separated by a distance of 4 μm with a classical fidelity of 65%, although at present it is limited by spin flips occurring during the transfer procedure before and after electron displacement.
On-demand single-electron transfer between distant quantum dots
Here it is shown how a single electron may be captured in a surface acoustic wave minimum and transferred from one quantum dot to a second, unoccupied, dot along a long, empty channel.
Manipulating dynamical Rabi-splitting with two-color laser pulses.
The employed OTC scheme is shown to be efficient for controlling the dynamic Rabi-splitting through the control of quantum-path interferences involved in one-photon and two- photon absorption processes.
Coherent control of single electrons: a review of current progress.
The present state of the art of the control of propagating quantum states at the single-electron level and its potential application to quantum information processing is reviewed and an outlook and future challenges in the field are presented.
Solid-state quantum memory using the 31P nuclear spin
The transfer of information between different physical forms—for example processing entities and memory—is a central theme in communication and computation. This is crucial in quantum computation,
Classical and quantum-mechanical scaling of ionization from excited hydrogen atoms in single-cycle THz pulses
Excited atoms, or nanotip surfaces, exposed to strong single-cycle terahertz radiation emit electrons with energies strongly dependent on the characteristics of the initial state. Here we consider
Quantum control and characterization of ultrafast ionization with orthogonal two-color laser pulses
It is shown that with the use of the OTC scheme, one can tailor the properties of the control pulse to lead to enhancement of the ionization rate through the Autler-Townes effect without affecting the dynamic interference, which is shown to result from constructive interferences between partial photoelectron waves having opposite-parity.

Single-shot, projective measurement of a single nuclear spin in diamond is demonstrated using a quantum nondemolition measurement scheme, which allows real-time observation of an individual nuclear spin’s state in a room-temperature solid.
