|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 300 000|
|Project duration||April 2011 - March 2013|
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.
