On arXiv: Identifying Pauli spin blockade using deep learning

Pauli spin blockade (PSB) is a great resource for spin qubit initialisation and readout even at elevated temperatures but it can be difficult to identify. We present a machine learning algorithm capable of automatically identifying PSB…

Published in Nature Electronics: A hole spin qubit in a finFET above 4 Kelvin

One of the greatest challenges in quantum computing is scaling. Classical nm-scale fin field-effect transistors (FinFETs) have scaled to billions of transistors on a silicon chip. Here, we operate a silicon FinFET as a hole spin qubit above…
