Published in Nano Letters: Remote Doping of Scalable Nanowire Branches

Selective-area epitaxy provides a path toward high crystal quality, scalable and complex nanowire networks. Here, we demonstrate remote-doping in InGaAs nanowire networks and find weak anti-localization—a signature of strong spin–orbit…

On arXiv: Out-of-plane corrugations in graphene based van der Waals heterostructures

2D materials are often envisioned as flat monoatomic truly 2D layers. However, out-of-plane corrugations are inevitably present. In an in-plane magnetic field, the ripples lead to random, inhomogeneous perpendicular fields, causing…

On arXiv: Edge State Wave Functions from Tunneling Spectroscopy

We use the lowest five modes of a quantum wire to probe adjacent quantum Hall edge state in tunneling spectroscopy. We self-consistently solve the Poisson-Schrödinger equations to simulate the spectroscopy, reproducing the experiment in…

On arXiv: Quantum device fine-tuning using unsupervised embedding learning

We experimentally demonstrate an algorithm capable of fi ne-tuning several device parameters at once. The algorithm acquires a measurement, scores it using a variational auto-encoder, and optimizes gate voltage via the score in real-time in…

Published in PRB: Symmetry breaking of the persistent spin helix in quantum transport

We introduce a new spin quantization axis via the persistent spin helix, revealing a full decoupling of the Cooperon triplet scattering modes as well as decoupled Landau levels. This makes it possible to derive a closed-form expression for…

New on the arXiv: Machine learning automatic tuning of a quantum dot

We demonstrate a statistical tuning algorithm that navigates the entire large parameter space of a gate-defined quantum dot. Using just a few modelling assumptions, we demonstrate fully automated tuning to the double dot regime.This also…
