Adiabatic Condition

- When the system Hamiltonian is changed adiabatically, the system wavefunction can be expanded on the instantaneous eigenstates:

- System evolution is governed by the
- Schroedinger equation:

- Instantaneous eigenvalues and eigenstates are needed to integrate the Schroedinger equation.

Exchange versus donor displacements

The extreme sensitivity of the

exchange coupling to the relative

positioning of the substitutional donor

pair in Si is entirely due to the

six-fold degeneracy of the Si

conduction band minimum.

Dipolar spin coupling ? Dipolar gates?

R. de Sousa et al., cond-mat/031140, PRA 70, 052304 (2003)

Si:P SPIN DIPOLAR GATE QC ARCHITECTURE

- Long-range dipolar ~1/R3 is much stronger than short-range exchange for large inter-donor separation; How large should be the separation so that J can be neglected?

- J0 leads to error of the order of (J/D)2; Hence the criterium for gate error to be within p is:

- Separations of the order of 300 Å allows easier lithography;
- Gates are 106 times slower than exchange coupling; however there is no need for exchange control and donor positioning with atomic precision.

Using 28Si we expect T2~T1~ seconds for B~1T

- Long range couplings are corrected with no overhead in gate time (ability to -pulse within 5s is required).
- Dipolar implementation is reliable, its advantages/disadvantages should be compared with other proposals without exchange (for example, Skinner, Davenport, Kane, PRL 2003, which requires electron shuttling between donors);
- Dipolar coupling insensitive to electronic structure: No inter-valley interference, interstitial defects are also good qubits;
- “Top-down” construction schemes based on ion implantation can be used even though they lack atomic precision in donor positioning.
- Can be scaled up

Electron spin coherence in

semiconductor QC’s

Bound orbital states T1 ~ 1ms (GaAs Quantum dot)

(B=1T, T<<1K) 10 s (Si:P)

Decoherence is dominated by spin-spin interactions:

SPECTRAL DIFFUSION

fluctuates due to

nuclear dipolar flip-flops

RESULTS:

T2 ~ 50 ms GaAs-QD

>1000 ms Si:P

- Spin-orbit + phonons
- Hyperfine + phonons
- Spin-orbit + photons

- Spectral diffusion(nuclear spins, time dependent magnetic fields)
- Dipolar / exchange coupling between “like” spins

- Unresolved hyperfine structure
- Different g-factors
- Inhomogeneous fields
- Dipolar / exchange between “unlike” spins.

B

- Nuclear spins flip-flop due to their dipolar interaction;
- Electron’s Zeeman frequency fluctuates in time due to nuclear hyperfine field.

Theory

- Nuclear pairs are described by Poisson random variables;
- Flip-flop rates are calculated using the method of moments, a high temperature expansion.

TM increases very fast when we remove 29Si !

Spectral diffusion is very important: Ga and As do not have I=0 isotopes !

DYNAMIC NUCLEAR POLARIZATION ?

[W.M. Witzel, R. de Sousa, S. Das Sarma, cond-mat/0501503]

- Electrical control of single spin dynamics is promising for III-V quantum dots because of spin-orbit coupling;
- The spin of localized states interact weakly with the phonons at low T: Nuclear induced spectral diffusion if the dominant decoherence mechanism;
- Isotopically purified Si:P donor spins can be coherent for ~1000 s (B = 0.3 Tesla); 60 ms already measured ! (S.A. Lyon, 2003)
- GaAs quantum dots (or donors) coherent for only 1 – 100 s, but TM /J > 106 !
