Semiconducting nanowires are a promising materials system for quantum information processing applications. Presently, there is much interest in using nanowires to support both spin qubits and, when contacted by a superconductor, Majorana fermions. The overall aim of the proposed research will be to develop the next generation of hybrid superconductor semiconductor nanowire quantum devices using ultra-clean InSb nanowires grown by molecular beam epitaxy. We will develop new device assembly techniques and sensitive charge detection schemes to explore and control single spin quantum coherence. Nanowire devices will be coupled to superconducting microwave resonators in order to demonstrate coherent spin-photon coupling and probe Majorana bound states.
