  5. Oxide Systems – An Answer to the Qubit Problem?

    08 Mar 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Sudhakar Yarlagadda

    One can produce new oxide-based devices by exploiting their tunability, rich physics, and coupling between the various degrees of freedom (such as charge, lattice, spin, etc.). We propose that oxide-based double quantum dots with only one electron (tunneling between the dots) can be regarded as...
