Spin Qubits and Gates
Encoded Spin-qubits in Multi-quantum Dot Devices
The encoding of one spin-qubit in the state-space of more than one quantum dot is very promising since it allows qubitmanipulations via the exchange interaction with fast quantum gates. Encoded spin-qubits have provided considerableadvances on the road to spin-based quantum computing in recent years.
The encoded qubit in three singly-occupied quantum dots (the "exchange-only qubit") is the simplest system where fullsingle-qubit control is possible via exchange interactions. We describe the coherence properties of this system for whichthe first experimental studies are now being published.
Encoded qubits in a double quantum dot system are also actively studied, in particular, the question which advantagesmulti-electron quantum dots provide over single-electron encodings.
