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.
Today, Prof. Silke Bühler-Paschen from the Institute of Solid State Physics of the Technical University of Vienna, Austria, is giving the Basel Physics Colloquium, with title "Correlations with drive - New phases and excitations in quantum materials". ... Thanks very much for a very nice introduction to heavy fermion materials and quantum phase transitions, as well as very impressive results! And thanks very much for the inspiring and fun visit!
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.
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.
