Orson van der Molen starts EMP user access on direct-Rashba spin qubit

Orson van der Molen from the group of Prof. Erik Bakkers, TU Eindhoven, is starting a user access project on the Basel node of the European Microkelvin Platform (EMP). The project is working to implement hole spins in gate defined Ge/Si core/shell nanowires as direct-Rashba spin qubits.

Ares Group starts European Microkelvin Platforn User Access on Machine Learning

Dominic Lennon from the group of Dr. Natalia Ares, Oxford University, has started a user access project on the Basel node of the European Microkelvin Platform (EMP). The project is working to implement machine learning to search for Pauli spin blockade in Ge/Si core/shell nanowire quantum dots for spin qubits.

FET project TOPSQUAD launched: TOpologically Protected and Scalable QUAntum Bits

The consortium consisting of Uni Basel, TU Eindhoven, Uni Twente and IST Vienna plus start-ups nano-PHAB and BASPI is setting out to explore Majorana fermions in Ge/Si core/shell nanowires. The hole carriers in this system are subject to very strong confinement, a thin, protective shell facilitating proximitization yet preventing metalization, potentially strong electron-electron interactions, and finally, large and tunable spin-orbit coupling and g-factor.
