Research Topic Description, including Problem Statement:
Qubits based on superconducting circuits and spins in semiconducting quantum dots typically require operation at mK temperatures and in a pristinely filtered and shielded environment. Furthermore, variations in measurement setup often results in varying results from lab to lab, even with nominally identical devices. Operation in more extreme environments could enable lower complexity and lower cost cryogenic setups; operation in large magnetic fields for novel research directions or less sensitivity to precise details of the experimental setup.
This topic aims to develop schemes for operation of superconducting and/or spin-based gate-defined quantum dots in extreme environments:
Examples of work for operation in extreme environments:
Relevance to the Intelligence Community:
Leading solid-state quantum computing approaches require operation in cold and highly controlled environments. Best practices for maintaining such environments have been built-up over time, but vary from laboratory to laboratory and qubit-to-qubit. Developing techniques, designs and methods to reduce reliance on these practices would enable broader adoption and more consistent experimental results.
