Coherent transport of a single electron spin in semiconducting nanostructures

Objective

Control and manipulation of spins is undoubtly one of the major challenges in nanoelectronics for the next decades. The goal of this ambitious project is to realize coherent transport of a single electron spin in a scalable condensed matter system. Presently, one can achieve extremely high control of an electron spin using semiconductor quantum dots, the elementary brick for spin based quantum computer. In order to manipulate and control spins individually on a large scale one has to be able to transport coherently a single electron spin from one place to another in quantum nanoprocessors. The coherent spin transport is the missing piece to the teleportation protocol and to the non-local interaction between distant qubits. Such an approach will open new possibilities to the field of spin-based quantum information processing and is an essential step towards coherent control of a large number of Q-Bits.
