We present a brief overview of the current theoretical and experimental progresses in the study of quantum dot-based quantum computing schemes, then focus on the spin-based varieties, which are generally regarded as the most scalable because of the relatively long coherence times of electron and nuclear spins. Reviewed topics include spin coherence, spin interaction, spin detection, and the current status of the experimental studies of spin-based quantum computing.

The ability to perform high-precision one-and two-qubit operations is sufficient for universal quantum computation. For the Loss-DiVincenzo proposal to use single electron spins confined to quantum
Electron spin as a spectrometer of nuclear spin noise and other fluctuations
This chapter establishes the relationship between low-frequency noise and coherence decay of localized spins in semiconductors, as measured by a number of different pulse spin resonance sequences. A

A brief review is given of the physical implementation of quantum computation within spin systems or other two-state quantum systems. The importance of the controlled-NOT or quantum XOR gate as the
Quantum computation with quantum dots
We propose an implementation of a universal set of one- and two-quantum-bit gates for quantum computation using the spin states of coupled single-electron quantum dots. Desired operations are
Pseudo-spin quantum computation in semiconductor nanostructures
We review the theoretical aspects of pseudo-spin quantum computation using vertically coupled quantum dots in the quantum Hall regime. We discuss the robustness and addressability of these
Spin-based quantum computation in multielectron quantum dots
It is shown that multielectron quantum dots with one valence electron in the outermost shell do not behave simply as an effective single-spin system unless special conditions are satisfied.
Quantum computing and single-qubit measurements using the spin-filter effect (invited)
Many things will have to go right for quantum computation to become a reality in the lab. For any of the presently proposed approaches involving spin states in solids, an essential requirement is
Universal quantum logic from Zeeman and anisotropic exchange interactions
Some of the most promising proposals for scalable solid-state quantum computing, e.g., those using electron spins in quantum dots or donor electron or nuclear spins in Si, rely on a two-qubit quantum
Quantum‐Information Processing in Semiconductor Quantum Dots
We propose an all-optical implementation of quantum-information processing in semiconductor quantum dots, where electron-hole excitations (excitons) serve as the computational degrees of freedom
Quantum information processing using quantum dot spins and cavity QED
The electronic spin degrees of freedom in semiconductors typically have decoherence times that are several orders of magnitude longer than other relevant time scales. A solid-state quantum computer
Spin-based all-optical quantum computation with quantum dots: Understanding and suppressing decoherence
We present an all-optical implementation of quantum computation using semiconductor quantum dots. Quantum memory is represented by the spin of an excess electron stored in each dot. Two-qubit gates
