Research Summary

Seigo  Tarucha(D.Eng.)

Hardware and underlying physics for quantum information processing with quantum control of soli-state quantum states are studied. Quantum information processing is an ideal information technology whose operation accompanies low-energy dissipation and high information security. The purpose of this laboratory is to demonstrate ability of the solid-state information processing using quantum operations of quantum coherence and entanglement in semiconductor and superconductor nanostructures and finally outline a path for the realization. The specific research targets are"quantum computing"including quantum logic operation and quantum simulation, "quantum interface" which can offer quantum memory and relay, and "quantum nanodevices"relavent for the quantum control. Architectures for best suited quantum systems, science and technology for both materials and devices, and fundamental physics of quantum entanglement decoherence and spin correlation are investigated.
