On arXiv: Beating-free quantum oscillations with strong spin-orbit and Zeeman interactions

Shubnikov-de Haas (SdH) oscillations are the fingerprint of the Landau and Zeeman splitting level structure on the resistivity, serving as a paradigmatic experimental probe. So far, no analytical description could be found for the vast…
PSB detector

Published in Quantum: Identifying Pauli spin blockade using deep learning

Pauli spin blockade (PSB) can be employed as a great resource for spin qubit initialisation and readout even at elevated temperatures but it can be difficult to identify. In this paper, we present a machine learning algorithm capable of…
