Research Summary

Seigo Tarucha (D.Eng.)

We perform research and development to apply semiconductor electron (or hole) spins to quantum computing. Study on semiconductor quantum computing has been motivated by advantages of compatibility with existing semiconductor device integration technology and capability of high-temperature (> 1 Kelvin) operation. We demonstrate that coherent manipulation of semiconductor spin qubits in semiconductor nanostructures and superconducting nano-scale junctions is useful as elemental technology of information processing and develop relevant quantum logic calculation methods, advanced quantum architectures, qubit devices that have compatibility with semiconductor device integration technology.
