Novel quantum phenomena in nanowires and quantum dots with a strong spin-orbit interaction.

Reference number
Coordinator Lunds universitet - Fysiska Institutionen
Funding from Vinnova SEK 300 000
Project duration April 2011 - March 2013
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

The primary objective is to study quantum phenomena in systems made in narrow gap semiconductor nanowires. Xu group in Lund University, where they have achieved high quality narrow gap semiconductor nanowires and measured its quantum transport properties, collaborate with Tarucha group in the University of Tokyo, where they have achieved the outstanding results in quantum computation using spins, to tackle the following challenging subjects: strong coupling between a photon and an electron spin, high performance spin quantum bits, and observation of the Majorana Fermions.

Results and expected effects

The results obtained under support by VINNOVA have been excellent. Now the two groups have been highly visible worldwide in the field of quantum transport in semiconductor nanostructures.

Approach and implementation

Our performance is very much in line with our project design and the project has been completed with great success.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
