Quantum supercurrent transistors in carbon nanotubes
It is found, in good agreement with existing theory, that the product of the critical current and the normal state resistance becomes an oscillating function, in contrast to being constant as in previously explored regimes.
Carbon Nanotube Radio-Frequency Single-Electron Transistor
AbstractWe discuss the theory of the radio-frequency single-electron transistor and the measurements that use multiwalled carbon nanotubes as active elements. Our devices made of plasma-enhanced
Optimized fabrication and characterization of carbon nanotube spin valves
We report an improved fabrication scheme for carbon based nanospintronic devices and demonstrate the necessity for a careful data analysis to investigate the fundamental physical mechanisms leading
The role of metal-nanotube contact in the performance of carbon nanotube field-effect transistors.
It is shown that a large data set of more than 100 devices can be consistently accounted by a model that relates the on-current of a CNFET to a tunneling barrier whose height is determined by the nanotube diameter and the nature of the source/drain metal contacts.
Carbon nanotube Josephson junctions with Nb contacts
We report on the preparation of carbon nanotube Josephson junctions using superconducting electrodes made of niobium. Gate-controllable supercurrents with values of up to 30 nA are induced by the
Realization of a Carbon-Nanotube-Based Superconducting Qubit
Hybrid circuit quantum electrodynamics (QED) involves the study of coherent quantum physics in solid state systems via their interactions with superconducting microwave circuits. Here we present an
Measuring the complex admittance of a carbon nanotube double quantum dot.
By measuring the in-phase and quadrature components of the reflected rf signal, the complex admittance of the double quantum dot is determined as a function of the energies of the single-electron states.
Thermal and quantum phase slips in niobium-nitride nanowires based on suspended carbon nanotubes
Superconducting nanowires have attracted considerable attention due to their unique quantum-mechanical properties, as well as their potential as next-generation quantum nanodevices, such as
Controlled dc Monitoring of a Superconducting Qubit.
This work exploits a feature of creating a transmon qubit using semiconductor-superconductor hybrid materials to compare in the same device characteristics of the qubit, such as frequency and relaxation time, with related transport properties such as critical supercurrent and normal-state resistance.
Clean carbon nanotubes coupled to superconducting impedance-matching circuits.
This work successfully couple a nanotube to a gigahertz superconducting matching circuit and thereby retain pristine transport characteristics such as the control of, and coupling strengths between, the quantum dots.
