title = {Control and coherence time enhancement of the 0{\textendash}$\uppi$ qubit},
journal = {New Journal of Physics},
abstract = {Kitaev‚Äôs 0‚ÄìœÄ qubit encodes quantum information in two protected, near-degenerate states of a superconducting quantum circuit. In a recent work, we have shown that the coherence times of a realistic 0‚ÄìœÄ device can surpass that of today‚Äôs best superconducting qubits (Groszkowski et al 2018 New J. Phys. 20 043053). Here we address controllability of the 0‚ÄìœÄ qubit. Specifically, we investigate the potential for dispersive control and readout, and introduce a new, fast and high-fidelity single-qubit gate that can interpolate smoothly between logical X and Z. We characterize the action of this gate using a multi-level treatment of the device, and analyze the impact of circuit-element disorder and deviations in control and circuit parameters from their optimal values. Furthermore, we propose a cooling scheme to decrease the photon shot-noise dephasing rate, which we previously found to limit the coherence times of 0‚ÄìœÄ devices within reach of current experiments. Using this approach, we predict coherence time enhancements between one and three orders of magnitude, depending on parameter regime.},

Abstract = {At the Mott transition, electron-electron interaction changes a metal, in which electrons are itinerant, to an insulator, in which electrons are localized. This phenomenon is central to quantum materials. Here we contribute to its understanding by studying the two-dimensional Hubbard model at finite temperature with plaquette cellular dynamical mean-field theory. We provide an exhaustive thermodynamic description of the correlation-driven Mott transition of the half-filled model by calculating pressure, charge compressibility, entropy, kinetic energy, potential energy and free energy across the first-order Mott transition and its high-temperature crossover (Widom line). The entropy is extracted from the Gibbs-Duhem relation and shows complex behavior near the transition, marked by discontinuous jumps at the first-order boundary, singular behavior at the Mott endpoint and inflections marking sharp variations in the supercritical region. The free energy allows us to identify the thermodynamic phase boundary, to discuss phases stability and metastability, and to touch upon nucleation and spinodal decomposition mechanisms for the transition. We complement this thermodynamic description of the Mott transition by an information-theoretic description. We achieve this by calculating the local entropy, which is a measure of entanglement, and the single-site total mutual information, which quantifies quantum and classical correlations. These information-theoretic measures exhibit characteristic behaviors that allow us to identify the first-order coexistence regions, the Mott critical endpoint and the crossovers along the Widom line in the supercritical region. },

Abstract = {Entanglement and information are powerful lenses to probe phases transitions in many-body systems. Motivated by recent cold atom experiments, which are now able to measure the corresponding information-theoretic quantities, we study the Mott transition in the half-filled two-dimensional Hubbard model using cellular dynamical mean-field theory, and focus on two key measures of quantum correlations: entanglement entropy and mutual information. We show that they detect the first-order nature of the transition, the universality class of the endpoint, and the crossover emanating from the endpoint.},

Abstract = { Motivated by the growing interest in self-correcting quantum memories, we study the feasibility of self-correction in classical lattice systems composed of bounded degrees of freedom with local interactions. We argue that self-correction, including a requirement of stability against external perturbation, cannot be realized in system with broken global symmetries such as the 2d Ising model, but that systems with local, i.e. gauge, symmetries have the required properties. Previous work gave a three-dimensional quantum system which realized a self-correcting classical memory. Here we show that a purely classical three dimensional system, Wegner's 3D Ising lattice gauge model, can also realize this self-correction despite having an extensive ground state degeneracy. We give a detailed numerical study to support the existence of a self-correcting phase in this system, even when the gauge symmetry is explicitly broken. More generally, our results obtained by studying the memory lifetime of the system are in quantitative agreement with the phase diagram obtained from conventional analysis of the system's specific heat, except that self-correction extends beyond the topological phase, past the lower critical temperature.},

suitable to decode quantum error-correcting codes because of a unique quantum feature called error degeneracy. Inspired by an exact mapping between BP and deep neural networks, we train neural BP decoders for quantum low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes with a loss function tailored to error degeneracy. Training substantially improves the performance of BP decoders for all families of codes we tested and may solve the degeneracy problem which plagues the decoding of quantum LDPC codes.},

Abstract = {Electron spins hold great promise for quantum computation because of their long coherence times. Long-distance coherent coupling of spins is a crucial step towards quantum information processing with spin qubits. One approach to realizing interactions between distant spin qubits is to use photons as carriers of quantum information. Here we demonstrate strong coupling between single microwave photons in a niobium titanium nitride high-impedance resonator and a three-electron spin qubit (also known as a resonant exchange qubit) in a gallium arsenide device consisting of three quantum dots. We observe the vacuum Rabi mode splitting of the resonance of the resonator, which is a signature of strong coupling; specifically, we observe a coherent coupling strength of about 31 megahertz and a qubit decoherence rate of about 20 megahertz. We can tune the decoherence electrostatically to obtain a minimal decoherence rate of around 10 megahertz for a coupling strength of around 23 megahertz. We directly measure the dependence of the qubit--photon coupling strength on the tunable electric dipole moment of the qubit using the `AC Stark'effect. Our demonstration of strong qubit--photon coupling for a three-electron spin qubit is an important step towards coherent long-distance coupling of spin qubits.},

abstract = {Multiqubit parity measurements are essential to quantum error correction. Current realizations of these measurements often rely on ancilla qubits, a method that is sensitive to faulty two-qubit gates and that requires notable experimental overhead. We propose a hardware-efficient multiqubit parity measurement exploiting the bifurcation dynamics of a parametrically driven nonlinear oscillator. This approach takes advantage of the resonator{\textquoteright}s parametric oscillation threshold, which depends on the joint parity of dispersively coupled qubits, leading to high-amplitude oscillations for one parity subspace and no oscillation for the other. We present analytical and numerical results for two- and four-qubit parity measurements, with high-fidelity readout preserving the parity eigenpaces. Moreover, we discuss a possible realization that can be readily implemented with the current circuit quantum electrodynamics (QED) experimental toolbox. These results could lead to substantial simplifications in the experimental implementation of quantum error correction and notably of the surface code.},

Abstract = {Arikan's recursive code construction was designed for memoryless channels, but was recently shown to also polarize channels with finite-state memory. The resulting successive cancellation decoder has a complexity that scales like the third power of the channel's memory size. Furthermore, the polar code construction was extended by replacing the block polarization kernel by a convoluted kernel. Here, we extend the polar code efficient decoding algorithm for channels with memory to the family of convolutional polar code. We use numerical simulations to study the performance of these algorithms for practically relevant code sizes and find that the convolutional structure outperforms the standard polar codes on a variety of channels with memory.},

Abstract = {We consider the problem of fault-tolerant quantum computation in the presence of slow error diagnostics, either caused by measurement latencies or slow decoding algorithms. Our scheme offers a few improvements over previously existing solutions, for instance it does not require active error correction and results in a reduced error-correction overhead when error diagnostics is much slower than the gate time. In addition, we adapt our protocol to cases where the underlying error correction strategy chooses the optimal correction amongst all Clifford gates instead of the usual Pauli gates. The resulting Clifford frame protocol is of independent interest as it can increase error thresholds and could find applications in other areas of quantum computation.},

Abstract = {We present two techniques that can greatly reduce the number of gates required to realize an energy measurement, with application to ground state preparation in quantum simulations. The first technique realizes that to prepare the ground state of some Hamiltonian, it is not necessary to implement the time-evolution operator: any unitary operator which is a function of the Hamiltonian will do. We propose one such unitary operator which can be implemented exactly, circumventing any Taylor or Trotter approximation errors. The second technique is tailored to lattice models, and is targeted at reducing the use of generic single-qubit rotations, which are very expensive to produce by standard fault tolerant techniques. In particular, the number of generic single-qubit rotations used by our method scales with the number of parameters in the Hamiltonian, which contrasts with a growth proportional to the lattice size required by other techniques.},

Abstract = {To help develop quantum circuits, much effort has been directed toward achieving the strong-coupling regime by using gate-defined semiconductor quantum dots. Potentially, the magnetic dipole, or spin, of a single electron for use as a qubit has advantages over charge-photon coupling owing to its longer lifetime. Samkharadze et al. hybridized the electron spin with the electron charge in a double silicon quantum dot. This approach yielded strong coupling between the single electron spin and a single microwave photon, providing a route to scalable quantum circuits with spin qubits.Science, this issue p. 1123Long coherence times of single spins in silicon quantum dots make these systems highly attractive for quantum computation, but how to scale up spin qubit systems remains an open question. As a first step to address this issue, we demonstrate the strong coupling of a single electron spin and a single microwave photon. The electron spin is trapped in a silicon double quantum dot, and the microwave photon is stored in an on-chip high-impedance superconducting resonator. The electric field component of the cavity photon couples directly to the charge dipole of the electron in the double dot, and indirectly to the electron spin, through a strong local magnetic field gradient from a nearby micromagnet. Our results provide a route to realizing large networks of quantum dot{ extendash}based spin qubit registers.},

Abstract = {As far as we know, a useful quantum computer will require fault-tolerant gates, and existing schemes demand a prohibitively large space and time overhead. We argue that a first generation quantum computer will be very valuable to design, test, and optimize fault-tolerant protocols tailored to the noise processes of the hardware. Our argument is essentially a critical analysis of the current methods envisioned to optimize fault-tolerant schemes, which rely on hardware characterization, noise modelling, and numerical simulations. We show that, even within a very restricted set of noise models, error correction protocols depend strongly on the details of the noise model. Combined to the intrinsic diculty of hardware characterization and of numerical simulations of fault-tolerant protocols, we arrive at the conclusion that the currently envisioned optimization cycle is of very limited scope. On the other hand, the direct characterization of a fault-tolerant scheme on a small quantum computer bypasses these diculties, and could provide a bootstrapping path to full-scale fault-tolerant quantum computation.},

Abstract = {Arikan's Polar codes attracted much attention as the first efficiently decodable and capacity achieving codes. Furthermore, Polar codes exhibit an exponentially decreasing block error probability with an asymptotic error exponent upper bounded by 1/2. Since their discovery, many attempts have been made to improve the error exponent and the finite block-length performance, while keeping the bloc-structured kernel. Recently, two of us introduced a new family of efficiently decodable error-correction codes based on a recently discovered efficiently-contractible tensor network family in quantum many-body physics, called branching MERA. These codes, called branching MERA codes, include Polar codes and also extend them in a non-trivial way by substituting the bloc-structured kernel by a convolutional structure. Here, we perform an in-depth study of a particular example that can be thought of as a direct extension to Arikan's Polar code, which we therefore name Convolutional Polar codes. We prove that these codes polarize and exponentially suppress the channel's error probability, with an asymptotic error exponent log_2(3)/2 which is provably better than for Polar codes under successive cancellation decoding. We also perform finite block-size numerical simulations which display improved error-correcting capability with only a minor impact on decoding complexity.}}

Abstract = {The surface code is a many-body quantum system, and simulating it in generic conditions is computationally hard. While the surface code is believed to have a high threshold, the numerical simulations used to establish this threshold are based on simplified noise models. We present a tensor-network algorithm for simulating error correction with the surface code under arbitrary local noise. Our simulation is exact within statistical fluctuations and we use it to study the threshold and the sub-threshold behaviour of the amplitude-damping and systematic rotation channels. We also compare these exact results to those obtained by making standard approximations to the noise models.},

Abstract = {While topological quantum computation is intrinsically fault-tolerant at zero temperature, it looses its topological protection at any finite temperature. We present a scheme to protect the information stored in a system supporting non-cyclic anyons against thermal and measurement errors. The correction procedure builds on the work of G'acs cite{Gacs_86} and Harrington cite{Harrington_04} and operates as a local cellular automaton. In contrast to previously studied schemes, our scheme is valid for both abelian and non-abelian anyons and accounts for measurement errors. We prove the existence of a fault-tolerant threshold and numerically simulate the procedure for a system of Ising anyons. The result of our simulations are consistent with a threshold between $10^{-4}$ and $10^{-3}$.},

Abstract = {We show how to construct a large class of quantum error correcting codes, known as CSS codes, from highly entangled cluster states. This becomes a primitive in a protocol that foliates a series of such cluster states into a much larger cluster state, implementing foliated quantum error correction. We exemplify this construction with several familiar quantum error correction codes, and propose a generic method for decoding foliated codes. We numerically evaluate the error-correction performance of a family of finite-rate CSS codes known as turbo codes, finding that it performs well over moderate depth foliations. Foliated codes have applications for quantum repeaters and fault-tolerant measurement-based quantum computation. },

Abstract = {We introduce a numerical method for identifying topological order in two-dimensional models based on one-dimensional bulk operators. The idea is to identify approximate symmetries supported on thin strips through the bulk that behave as string operators associated to an anyon model. We can express these ribbon operators in matrix product form and define a cost function that allows us to efficiently optimize over this ansatz class. We test this method on spin models with abelian topological order by finding ribbon operators for ℤd quantum double models with local fields and Ising-like terms. In addition, we identify ribbons in the abelian phase of Kitaev's honeycomb model which serve as the logical operators of the encoded qubit for the quantum error-correcting code. We further identify the topologically encoded qubit in the quantum compass model, and show that despite this qubit, the model does not support topological order. Finally, we discuss how the method supports generalizations for detecting nonabelian topological order. },

Abstract = {Quantum information processors need to be protected against errors and faults. One of the most widely considered fault-tolerant architecture is based on surface codes. While the general principles of these codes are well understood and basic code properties such as minimum distance and rate are easy to characterize, a code's average performance depends on the detailed geometric layout of the qubits. To date, optimizing a surface code architecture and comparing different geometric layouts relies on costly numerical simulations. Here, we propose a benchmarking algorithm for simulating the performance of surface codes, and generalizations thereof, that runs in linear time. We implemented this algorithm in a software that generates performance reports and allows to quickly compare different architectures. },

Abstract = { The simulation of molecules is a widely anticipated application of quantum computers. However, recent studies have cast a shadow on this hope by revealing that the complexity in gate count of such simulations increases with the number of spin orbitals N as N^8, which becomes prohibitive even for molecules of modest size N = 100. This study was partly based on a scaling analysis of the Trotter step required for an ensemble of random artificial molecules. Here, we revisit this analysis and find instead that the scaling is closer to N^6 in worst case for real model molecules we have studied, indicating that the random ensemble fails to accurately capture the statistical properties of real-world molecules. Actual scaling may be significantly better than this due to averaging effects. We then present an alternative simulation scheme and show that it can sometimes outperform existing schemes, but that this possibility depends crucially on the details of the simulated molecule. We obtain further improvements using a version of the coalescing scheme of cite{WBCH13a}; this scheme is based on using different Trotter steps for different terms. The method we use to bound the complexity of simulating a given molecule is efficient, in contrast to the approach of cite{WBCH13a,HWBT14a} which relied on exponentially costly classical exact simulation.},

Abstract = {In leading fault-tolerant quantum computing schemes, accurate transformation are obtained by a two-stage process. In a first stage, a discrete, universal set of fault-tolerant operations is obtained by error-correcting noisy transformations and distilling resource states. In a second stage, arbitrary transformations are synthesized to desired accuracy by combining elements of this set into a circuit. Here, we present a scheme which merges these two stages into a single one, directly distilling complex transformations. We find that our scheme can reduce the total overhead to realize certain gates by up to a few orders of magnitude. In contrast to other schemes, this efficient gate synthesis does not require computationally intensive compilation algorithms, and a straightforward generalization of our scheme circumvents compilation and synthesis altogether.},

Abstract = {In this article we address the computational hardness of optimally decoding a quantum stabilizer code. Much like classical linear codes, errors are detected by measuring certain check operators which yield an error syndrome, and the decoding problem consists of determining the most likely recovery given the syndrome. The corresponding classical problem is known to be {NP-complete}, and a similar decoding problem for quantum codes is also known to be {NP-complete.} However, this decoding strategy is not optimal in the quantum setting as it does not take into account error degeneracy, which causes distinct errors to have the same effect on the code. Here, we show that optimal decoding of stabilizer codes is computationally much harder than optimal decoding of classical linear codes, it is {\#P.}},

The basis for this scheme is a gadget for the fault-tolerant preparation of magic states that enable universal fault-tolerant quantum computation using only Clifford gates that preserve the noise bias. We analyse the distillation of |T⟩-type magic states using this gadget at the physical level, followed by concatenation with the 15-qubit quantum Reed-Muller code, and comparing our results with standard constructions. In the regime where the noise bias (rate of Pauli Z errors relative to other single-qubit errors) is greater than a factor of 10, our scheme has lower overhead across a broad range of relevant noise rates. },

Abstract = {Steane's 7-qubit quantum error-correcting code admits a set of fault-tolerant gates that generate the Clifford group, which in itself is not universal for quantum computation. The 15-qubit Reed-Muller code also does not admit a universal fault-tolerant gate set but possesses fault-tolerant T and control-control-Z gates. Combined with the Clifford group, either of these two gates generate a universal set. Here, we combine these two features by demonstrating how to fault-tolerantly convert between these two codes, providing a new method to realize universal fault-tolerant quantum computation. One interpretation of our result is that both codes correspond to the same subsystem code in different gauges. Our scheme extends to the entire family of quantum Reed-Muller codes.},

Abstract = {We present a three-dimensional generalization of a renormalization group decoding algorithm for topological codes with Abelian anyonic excitations that we previously introduced for two dimensions. This 3D implementation extends our previous 2D algorithm by incorporating a failure probability of the syndrome measurements, i.e., it enables fault-tolerant decoding. We report a fault-tolerant storage threshold of 1.9(4)% for Kitaev's toric code subject to a 3D bit-flip channel (i.e. including imperfect syndrome measurements). This number is to be compared with the 2.9% value obtained via perfect matching. The 3D generalization inherits many properties of the 2D algorithm, including a complexity linear in the space-time volume of the memory, which can be parallelized to logarithmic time.},

Translationally invariant systems of free fermions in arbitrary dimensions as well as 1D systems solved by the Jordan-Wigner transformation are shown to be exactly represented in this class. Further, it is proposed that these tensor networks be used as generic structures to describe more complicated systems, possibly leading to highly-efficient calculations in the Fermi-liquid phase. This class shares some similarities with Evenbly & Vidal’s branching MERA, but with some important differences and greatly reduced computational demands.},

Abstract = {Spin qubits based on interacting spins in double quantum dots have been demonstrated successfully. Readout of the qubit state involves a conversion of spin to charge information, which is universally achieved by taking advantage of a spin blockade phenomenon resulting from Pauli's exclusion principle. The archetypal spin blockade transport signature in double quantum dots takes the form of a rectified current. At present, more complex spin qubit circuits including triple quantum dots are being developed. Here we show, both experimentally and theoretically, that in a linear triple quantum dot circuit the spin blockade becomes bipolar with current strongly suppressed in both bias directions and also that a new quantum coherent mechanism becomes relevant. In this mechanism, charge is transferred non-intuitively via coherent states from one end of the linear triple dot circuit to the other, without involving the centre site. Our results have implications for future complex nanospintronic circuits. Copyright {\copyright} 2013 Macmillan Publishers Limited. All rights reserved.},

Abstract = {We consider two-dimensional lattice models that support Ising anyonic excitations and are coupled to a thermal bath. We propose a phenomenological model for the resulting short-time dynamics that includes pair-creation, hopping, braiding, and fusion of anyons. By explicitly constructing topological quantum error-correcting codes for this class of system, we use our thermalization model to estimate the lifetime of the quantum information stored in the encoded spaces. To decode and correct errors in these codes, we adapt several existing topological decoders to the non-Abelian setting. We perform large-scale numerical simulations of these two-dimensional Ising anyon systems and find that the thresholds of these models range between 13% to 25%. To our knowledge, these are the first numerical threshold estimates for quantum codes without explicit additive structure. },

Abstract = {Due to the great di±culty in scalability, quantum computers are limited in the number of
qubits during the early stages of the quantum computing regime. In addition to the required
qubits for storing the corresponding eigenvector, suppose we have additional k qubits available.
Given such a constraint k, we propose an approach for the phase estimation for an eigenphase
of exactly n-bit precision. This approach adopts the standard recursive circuit for quantum
Fourier transform (QFT) in [R. Cleve and J. Watrous, Fast parallel circuits for quantum
fourier transform, Proc. 41st Annual Symp. on Foundations of Computer Science (2000),
pp. 526536.] and adopts classical bits to implement such a task. Our algorithm has the complexity
of O(n log k), instead of O(n^2) in the conventional QFT, in terms of the total invocation
of rotation gates. We also design a scheme to implement the factorization algorithm by using
k available qubits via either the continued fractions approach or the simultaneous Diophantine
approximation.},

We perform an in-depth study of a particular example that can be thought of as an extension to Arikan's polar code. Notably, our numerical simulation show that this code polarizes the logical channels more strongly while retaining the log-linear decoding complexity using the successive cancellation decoder. These codes also display improved error-correcting capability with only a minor impact on decoding complexity. Efficient decoding is realized using powerful graphical calculus tools developed in the field of quantum many-body physics. In a companion paper, we generalize our construction to the quantum setting and describe more in-depth the relation between classical and quantum error correction and the graphical calculus of tensor networks.},

Abstract = {We study the robustness of quantum information stored in the degenerate ground space of a local, frustration-free Hamiltonian with commuting terms on a {2D} spin lattice. On one hand, a macroscopic energy barrier separating the distinct ground states under local transformations would protect the information from thermal fluctuations. On the other hand, local topological order would shield the ground space from static perturbations. Here we demonstrate that local topological order implies a constant energy barrier, thus inhibiting thermal stability.},

abstract={Two-photon quantum interference at a beam splitter, commonly known as Hong–Ou–Mandel interference, is a fundamental demonstration of the quantum mechanical nature of electromagnetic fields and a key component of various quantum information processing protocols. The phenomenon was recently demonstrated with microwave-frequency photons by Lang et al (2013 Nature Phys. 9 345–8). This experiment employed circuit QED systems as sources of microwave photons, and was based on the measurement of second-order cross-correlation and auto-correlation functions of the microwave fields at the outputs of the beam splitter using linear detectors. Here we present the calculation of these correlation functions for the cases of inputs corresponding to: (i) trains of pulsed Gaussian or Lorentzian single microwave photons and (ii) resonant fluorescent microwave fields from continuously driven circuit QED systems. In both cases, the signature of two-photon quantum interference is a suppression of the second-order cross-correlation function for small delays. The experiment described in Lang et al (2013) was performed with trains of Lorentzian single photons, and very good agreement with experimental data is obtained. The results are relevant not only to interference experiments using circuit QED systems, but any such setup with highly controllable sources and time-resolved detection.},

Volume = {13},
Year = {2013},
Abstract = {We propose a simplied version of the Kitaev's surface code in which error correction requires only three-qubit parity measurements for Pauli operators XXX and ZZZ. The new code belongs to the class of subsystem stabilizer codes. It inherits many favorable properties of the standard surface code such as encoding of multiple logical qubits on a planar lattice with punctured holes, ecient decoding by either minimum-weight matching or renormalization group methods, and high error threshold. The new subsystem surface code (SSC) gives rise to an exactly solvable Hamiltonian with 3-qubit interactions, topologically ordered ground state, and a constant energy gap. We construct a local unitary transformation mapping the SSC Hamiltonian to the one of the ordinary surface code thus showing that the two Hamiltonians belong to the same topological class. We describe error correction protocols for the SSC and determine its error thresholds under several natural error models. In particular, we show that the SSC has error threshold approximately 0:6% for the standard circuit-based error model studied in the literature. We also consider a model in which three-qubit parity operators can be measured directly. We show that the SSC has error threshold approximately 0:97% in this setting.},

Abstract = {In this paper we describe our recent experiments on coherent manipulation of electron spin states formed in a highly tunable GaAs/AlGaAs triple quantum dot device. The coherent evolution of spin states is achieved by using fast pulses from an initialization point in the (201) charge configuration region of the stability diagram. We demonstrate the versatility of the triple dot system capable of tuning to different regimes controlled by the width of the (111) region and pulse parameters. In particular we observe Δ'1/2-Q3/2 (analogue of S-T+ in a double dot) and Δ'1/2-Δ1/2 exchange driven oscillations from both sides of the stability diagram involving all three spins. {\copyright} 2013 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

abstract ={Photon-mediated interactions between atoms are of fundamental importance in quantum optics, quantum simulations, and quantum information processing. The exchange of real and virtual photons between atoms gives rise to nontrivial interactions, the strength of which decreases rapidly with distance in three dimensions. Here, we use two superconducting qubits in an open one-dimensional transmission line to study much stronger photon-mediated interactions. Making use of the possibility to tune these qubits by more than a quarter of their transition frequency, we observe both coherent exchange interactions at an effective separation of 3λ/4 and the creation of super- and subradiant states at a separation of one photon wavelength λ. In this system, collective atom-photon interactions and applications in quantum communication may be explored.},

Abstract = {Decoupling has become a central concept in quantum information theory with applications including proving
coding theorems, randomness extraction and the study of conditions for reaching thermal equilibrium. However,
our understanding of the dynamics that lead to decoupling is limited. In fact, the only families of transformations
that are known to lead to decoupling are (approximate) unitary two-designs, i.e., measures over the unitary
group which behave like the Haar measure as far as the first two moments are concerned. Such families include
for example random quantum circuits with O(n2) gates, where n is the number of qubits in the system under
consideration. In fact, all known constructions of decoupling circuits use
(n2) gates.
Here, we prove that random quantum circuits with O(n log2 n) gates satisfy an essentially optimal decoupling
theorem. In addition, these circuits can be implemented in depth O(log3 n). This proves that decoupling can
happen in a time that scales polylogarithmically in the number of particles in the system, provided all the particles
are allowed to interact. Our proof does not proceed by showing that such circuits are approximate two-designs in
the usual sense, but rather we directly analyze the decoupling property.},

Abstract = {Known strategies for sending bits at the capacity rate over a general channel with classical input and quantum output (a cq channel) require the decoder to implement impractically complicated collective measurements. Here, we show that a fully collective strategy is not necessary in order to recover all of the information bits. In fact, when coding for a large number N uses of a cq channel W, N I(W\$0acc) of the bits can be recovered by a non-collective strategy which amounts to coherent quantum processing of the results of product measurements, where I(W\$0acc) is the accessible information of the channel W. In order to decode the other N (I(W) - I(W\$0acc)) bits, where I(W) is the Holevo rate, our conclusion is that the receiver should employ collective measurements. We also present two other results: 1) collective Fuchs-Caves measurements (quantum likelihood ratio measurements) can be used at the receiver to achieve the Holevo rate and 2) we give an explicit form of the Helstrom measurements used in small-size polar codes. The main approach used to demonstrate these results is a quantum extension of Arikan's polar codes.},

Abstract = {Tensor network states are powerful variational ans¨atze for many-body ground states of quantum lattice models.
The use of Monte Carlo sampling techniques in tensor network approaches significantly reduces the cost
of tensor contractions, potentially leading to a substantial increase in computational efficiency. Previous proposals
are based on a Markov chain Monte Carlo scheme generated by locally updating configurations and, as
such, must deal with equilibration and autocorrelation times, which result in a reduction of efficiency. Here we
propose a perfect sampling scheme, with vanishing equilibration and autocorrelation times, for unitary tensor
networks – namely tensor networks based on efficiently contractible, unitary quantum circuits, such as unitary
versions of the matrix product state (MPS) and tree tensor network (TTN), and the multi-scale entanglement
renormalization ansatz (MERA). Configurations are directly sampled according to their probabilities in the
wavefunction, without resorting to a Markov chain process. We also describe a partial sampling scheme that
can result in a dramatic (basis-dependent) reduction of sampling error.},

for the multi-scale entanglement renormalization ansatz (MERA), which is a unitary tensor network. Two

of sampling over configurations of the original lattice, made of L sites, we sample over configurations of an
effective lattice, which is made of just log(L) sites. Second, the optimization of unitary tensors must account
for their unitary character while being robust to statistical noise, which we accomplish with a modified steepest
descent method within the set of unitary tensors. We demonstrate the performance of the variational Monte
Carlo MERA approach in the relatively simple context of a finite quantum spin chain at criticality, and discuss
future, more challenging applications, including two dimensional systems.},

Abstract = {Random transformations are typically good at "scrambling" information. Specifically, in the quantum setting, scrambling usually refers to the process of mapping most initial pure product states under a unitary transformation to states which are macroscopically entangled, in the sense of being close to completely mixed on most subsystems containing a fraction fn of all n particles for some constant f. While the term scrambling is used in the context of the black hole information paradox, scrambling is related to problems involving decoupling in general, and to the question of how large isolated many-body systems reach local thermal equilibrium under their own unitary dynamics. Here, we study the speed at which various notions of scrambling/decoupling occur in a simplified but natural model of random two-particle interactions: random quantum circuits. For a circuit representing the dynamics generated by a local Hamiltonian, the depth of the circuit corresponds to time. Thus, we consider the depth of these circuits and we are typically interested in what can be done in a depth that is sublinear or even logarithmic in the size of the system. We resolve an outstanding conjecture raised in the context of the black hole information paradox with respect to the depth at which a typical quantum circuit generates an entanglement assisted encoding against the erasure channel. In addition, we prove that typical quantum circuits of poly(log n) depth satisfy a stronger notion of scrambling and can be used to encode alpha n qubits into n qubits so that up to beta n errors can be corrected, for some constants alpha, beta {\textgreater} 0.},

Abstract = {Spin qubits involving individual spins in single quantum dots or coupled spins in double quantum dots have emerged as potential building blocks for quantum information processing applications 1-4. It has been suggested that triple quantum dots may provide additional tools and functionalities. These include encoding information either to obtain protection from decoherence or to permit all-electrical operation, efficient spin busing across a quantum circuit 6, and to enable quantum error correction using the three-spin Greenberger-Horn-Zeilinger quantum state. Towards these goals we demonstrate coherent manipulation of two interacting three-spin states. We employ the Landau-Zener-St{\"o}ckelberg 7,8 approach for creating and manipulating coherent superpositions of quantum states. We confirm that we are able to maintain coherence when decreasing the exchange coupling of one spin with another while simultaneously increasing its coupling with the third. Such control of pairwise exchange is a requirement of most spin qubit architectures 10, but has not been previously demonstrated.},

Abstract = {Spin qubits have been successfully realized in electrostatically defined, lateral few-electron quantum-dot circuits. Qubit readout typically involves spin to charge information conversion, followed by a charge measurement made using a nearby biased quantum point contact (QPC). It is critical to understand the back-action disturbances resulting from such a measurement approach. Previous studies have indicated that QPC detectors emit phonons which are then absorbed by nearby qubits. We report here the observation of a pronounced back-action effect in multiple dot circuits, where the absorption of detector-generated phonons is strongly modified by a quantum interference effect, and show that the phenomenon is well described by a theory incorporating both the QPC and coherent phonon absorption. Our combined experimental and theoretical results suggest strategies to suppress back-action during the qubit readout procedure. {\copyright} 2012 Macmillan Publishers Limited. All rights reserved.},

Abstract = {An important task required to build a scalable, fault-tolerant quantum computer is to eciently represent an arbitrary single-qubit rotation by fault-tolerant quantum operations. Traditionally, the method for decomposing a single-qubit unitary into a discrete set of gates is Solovay-Kitaev decomposition, which in practice produces a sequence of depth O(logc(1=)), where c 3:97 is the state-of-the-art. The proven lower bound is c = 1, however an ecient algorithm that saturates this bound is unknown. In this paper, we present an alternative to Solovay-Kitaev decomposition employing state distillation techniques which reduces c to between 1:12 and 2:27, depending on the setting. For a given single-qubit rotation, our protocol signicantly lowers the length of the approximating sequence and the number of required resource states (ancillary qubits). In addition, our protocol is robust to noise in the resource states.},

Abstract = {While Quantum phase estimation (QPE) is at the core of many quantum algorithms
known to date, its physical implementation (algorithms based on quantum Fourier trans-
form (QFT) ) is highly constrained by the requirement of high-precision controlled phase
shift operators, which remain dicult to realize. In this paper, we introduce an al-
ternative approach to approximately implement QPE with arbitrary constant-precision
controlled phase shift operators.
The new quantum algorithm bridges the gap between QPE algorithms based on
QFT and Kitaev's original approach. For approximating the eigenphase precise to the
nth bit, Kitaev's original approach does not require any controlled phase shift operator.
In contrast, QPE algorithms based on QFT or approximate QFT require controlled
phase shift operators with precision of at least Pi/2n. The new approach lls the gap
and requires only arbitrary constant-precision controlled phase shift operators. From a
physical implementation viewpoint, the new algorithm outperforms Kitaev's approach.},

Abstract = {Topological phases can be defined in terms of local equivalence:
two systems are in the same topological phase if it is possible to transform
one into the other by a local reorganization of its degrees of freedom. The
classification of topological phases therefore amounts to the classification of
long-range entanglement. Such local transformation could result, for instance,
from the adiabatic continuation of one system’s Hamiltonian to the other. Here,
we use this definition to study the topological phase of translationally invariant
stabilizer codes in two spatial dimensions, and show that they all belong to one
universal phase. We do this by constructing an explicit mapping from any such
code to a number of copies of Kitaev’s code. Some of our results extend to some
two-dimensional (2D) subsystem codes, including topological subsystem codes.
Error correction benefits from the corresponding local mappings. In particular, it
enables us to use decoding algorithm developed for Kitaev’s code to decode any
2D stabilizer code and subsystem code.},

At low temperature, averaged Isw shows a clear 1e periodic function of gate induced charge on the island. The relative contrast of this oscillation increases when EJ/Ec is lowered. Increasing dissipation reduce the quantum fluctuations of the phase across the sSET, leading to an increased Isw. {\copyright} Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.},

Abstract = {Induced currents associated with the quantum Hall effect are studied in the temperature range 39mK to 1.6K, and at Landau-level filling factors ν=1,2,3,4, and 6, using torsion-balance magnetometry. A quantitative link is demonstrated between (nonlinear induced current) vs (inducing electromotive force) curves, and the subexponential decay of the induced current in a static magnetic field. The energy storage in the induced currents is reexamined with the conclusion that the predominant mechanism for storage is inductive, through the mutual inductance between the sample and the magnet, not capacitive as previous reports have assumed. The temperature dependencies of the currents are consistent with previous models, except for a low-temperature saturation at filling factors ν=1 and ν=2, which we attribute to electron heating. {\copyright} 2012 American Physical Society.},

This lower bound is expressed as a convex optimization problem with linear constraints, and is derived using strong subadditivity of von Neumann entropy and a relaxation of the consistency condition of local density operators. The dual to this minimization problem leads to a set of quantum belief propagation equations, thus providing a firm theoretical foundation to that approach. The minimization problem is numerically tractable, and we find good agreement with quantum Monte Carlo for the spin-1/2 Heisenberg anti-ferromagnet in two dimensions. This lower bound complements other variational upper bounds. We discuss applications to Hamiltonian complexity theory and give a generalization of the structure theorem to trees in an appendix.},

We study the evolution of such a tripartite system including the appearance of a decoherence-free state (dark state) and non-Markovian behaviour. We find that all parameters of this TLS can be obtained from measurements of one of the probe qubits.

Abstract = {The original motivation to build a quantum computer came from
Feynman, who imagined a machine capable of simulating generic
quantum mechanical systems—a task that is believed to be intractable
for classical computers. Such a machine could have farreaching
applications in the simulation of many-body quantum
physics in condensed-matter, chemical and high-energy systems.
Part of Feynman’s challenge was met by Lloyd, who showed how to
approximately decompose the time evolution operator of interacting
quantum particles into a short sequence of elementary gates,
suitable for operation on a quantum computer. However, this left
open the problem of how to simulate the equilibrium and static
properties of quantum systems. This requires the preparation of
ground and Gibbs states on a quantum computer. For classical
systems, this problem is solved by the ubiquitous Metropolis algorithm,
a method that has basically acquired a monopoly on the
simulation of interacting particles. Here we demonstrate how to
implement a quantum version of the Metropolis algorithm. This
algorithm permits sampling directly from the eigenstates of the
Hamiltonian, and thus evades the sign problem present in classical
simulations. A small-scale implementation of this algorithm
should be achievable with today’s technology.},

Abstract = {Quantum tomography is the main method used to assess the quality of quantum information processing devices. However, the amount of resources needed for quantum tomography is exponential in the device size. Part of the problem is that tomography generates much more information than is usually sought. Taking a more targeted approach, we develop schemes that enable (i) estimating the fidelity of an experiment to a theoretical ideal description, (ii) learning which description within a reduced subset best matches the experimental data. Both these approaches yield a significant reduction in resources compared to tomography. In particular, we demonstrate that fidelity can be estimated from a number of simple experiments that is independent of the system size, removing an important roadblock for the experimental study of larger quantum information processing units.},

Abstract = {We report an investigation of quantum Hall induced currents by simultaneous measurements of their magnetic moment and their effect on the conductance of a quantum point contact (QPC). Correlation of features in the noise of the induced currents, caused by the breakdown of the quantum Hall effect, for the two types of measurements provides conclusive proof of the common origin of the two effects. Common features in the magnetic moment and QPC resistance at Landau-level filling factors V = 1, 2 and 4 and their similar temperature and nonlinear sweep-rate dependences support this conclusion. In contrast, there is a distinct difference in the way the induced currents decay with time when the sweeping field halts at integer filling factor as detected by the two types of measurement. We attribute this difference to the fact that, while both effects are sensitive to the magnitude of the induced current, the QPC resistance is also sensitive to the proximity of the current to the QPC split gate, and we develop a model that describes semi-quantitatively the effects we observe. Although it is clearly demonstrated that induced currents affect the electrostatics of a QPC, the reverse effect, the QPC influencing the induced current, is not observed. {\copyright} IOP Publishing Ltd and Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft.},

Abstract = {Low-temperature magnetoconductance measurements were made in the vicinity of the charge neutrality point (CNP). Two origins for the fluctuations were identified close to the CNP. At very low magnetic fields there exist only mesoscopic magnetoconductance quantum interference features which develop rapidly as a function of density. At slightly higher fields (>0.5 T), close to the CNP, additional fluctuations track the quantum Hall (QH) sequence expected for monolayer graphene. These additional features are attributed to effects of locally charging individual QH localized states. These effects reveal a precursor to the quantum Hall effect since, unlike previous transport observations of QH dot charging effects, they occur in the absence of quantum Hall plateaus or Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations. From our transport data we are able to extract parameters that characterize the inhomogeneities in our device. {\copyright} 2010 The American Physical Society.},

Abstract = {Strong confinement of charges in few-electron systems such as in atoms, molecules, and quantum dots leads to a spectrum of discrete energy levels often shared by several degenerate states. Because the electronic structure is key to understanding their chemical properties, methods that probe these energy levels in situ are important.We show how electrostatic force detection using atomic force microscopy reveals the electronic structure of individual and coupled self-assembled quantum dots. An electron addition spectrum results from a change in cantilever resonance frequency and dissipation when an electron tunnels on/off a dot. The spectra show clear level degeneracies in isolated quantum dots, supported by the quantitative measurement of predicted temperature-dependent shifts of Coulomb blockade peaks. Scanning the surface shows that several quantum dots may reside on what topographically appears to be just one. Relative coupling strengths can be estimated from these images of grouped coupled dots.},

Abstract = {We continue our numerical study of quantum belief propagation initiated in cite{PB08a}. We demonstrate how the method can be expressed in terms of an effective thermal potential that materializes when the system presents quantum correlations, but is insensitive to classical correlations. The thermal potential provides an efficient means to assess the precision of belief propagation on graphs with no loops. We illustrate these concepts using the one-dimensional quantum Ising model and compare our results with exact solutions. We also use the method to study the transverse field quantum Ising spin glass for which we obtain a phase diagram that is largely in agreement with the one obtained in cite{LSS07a} using a different approach. Finally, we introduce the coarse grained belief propagation (CGBP) algorithm to improve belief propagation at low temperatures. This method combines the reliability of belief propagation at high temperatures with the ability of entanglement renormalization to efficiently describe low energy subspaces of quantum systems with local interactions. With CGBP, thermodynamic properties of quantum systems can be calculated with a high degree of accuracy at all temperatures. },

Our algorithm makes use of two methods inspired from statistical physics: renormalization groups and mean-field approximations.

To improve this approximation, additional consistency conditions are imposed between the blocks, and are solved by a belief propagation algorithm.},

Abstract = {Quantum state tomography—deducing quantum states from measured data—is the gold standard for verification and benchmarking of quantum devices. It has been realized in systems with few components, but for larger systems it becomes unfeasible because the number of measurements and the amount of computation required to process them grows exponentially in the system size. Here, we present two tomography schemes that scale much more favourably than direct tomography with system size. One of them requires unitary operations on a constant number of subsystems, whereas the other requires only local measurements together with more elaborate post-processing. Both rely only on a linear number of experimental operations and post-processing that is polynomial in the system size. These schemes can be applied to a wide range of quantum states, in particular those that are well approximated by matrix product states. The accuracy of the reconstructed states can be rigorously certified without any a priori assumptions.},

Abstract = {Quantum systems carry information. Quantum theory supports at least two distinct kinds of
information (classical and quantum), and a variety of different ways to encode and preserve information
in physical systems. A system's ability to carry information is constrained and defined
by the noise in its dynamics. This paper introduces an operational framework, using informationpreserving
structures to classify all the kinds of information that can be perfectly (i.e., with zero
error) preserved by quantum dynamics. We prove that every perfectly preserved code has the same
structure as a matrix algebra, and that preserved information can always be corrected. We also
classify distinct operational criteria for preservation (e.g., ``noiseless'', ``unitarily correctible'', etc.)
and introduce two new and natural criteria for measurement-stabilized and unconditionally preserved

Abstract = {We ask whether there are fundamental limits on storing quantum information reliably in a bounded volume of space. To investigate this question, we study quantum error correcting codes specified by geometrically local commuting constraints on a 2D lattice of finite-dimensional quantum particles. For these 2D systems, we derive a tradeoff between the number of encoded qubits $k$, the distance of the code $d$, and the number of particles $n$. It is shown that $kd^2=O(n)$ where the coefficient in $O(n)$ depends only on the locality of the constraints and dimension of the Hilbert spaces describing individual particles. The analogous tradeoff for the classical information storage is $ksqrt{d} =O(n)$.},

title = {Coherent manipulation of individual electron spin in a double quantum dot integrated with a micromagnet},
abstract = {We report the coherent manipulation of electron spins in a double quantum dot integrated with a micromagnet. We performed electric dipole spin resonance experiments in the continuous wave (CW) and pump-and-pobe modes. We observed two resonant CW peaks and two Rabi oscillations of the quantum dot current by sweeping an external magnetic field at a fixed frequency. Two peaks and oscillations are measured at different resonant magnetic field, which reflects the fact that the local magnetic fields at each quantum dot are modulated by the stray field of a micromagnet. As predicted with a density matrix approach, the CW current is quadratic with respect to microwave (MW) voltage while the Rabi frequency (nu(Rabi)) is linear. The difference between the nu(Rabi) values of two Rabi oscillations directly reflects the MW electric field across the two dots. These results show that the spins on each dot can be manipulated coherently at will by tuning the micromagnet alignment and MW electric field.},

By varying the excitation frequency in the range 10 MHz-40 GHz, we observe that the critical and retrapping currents, deduced from the dc voltage versus dc current characteristics of the junction, are set by two different time scales. The critical current increases when the ac frequency is larger than the inverse diffusion time in the normal metal, whereas the retrapping current is strongly modified when the excitation frequency is above the electron-phonon rate in the normal metal. Therefore the critical and retrapping currents are associated with elastic and inelastic scattering, respectively. 2009 The American Physical Society.},

Abstract = {We present a theory of quantum serial turbo-codes, describe their iterative decoding algorithm, and study their performances numerically on a depolarization channel. Our construction offers several advantages over quantum LDPC codes. First, the Tanner graph used for decoding is free of 4-cycles that deteriorate the performances of iterative decoding. Secondly, the iterative decoder makes explicit use of the code's degeneracy. Finally, there is complete freedom in the code design in terms of length, rate, memory size, and interleaver choice.
We define a quantum analogue of a state diagram that provides an efficient way to verify the properties of a quantum convolutional code, and in particular its recursiveness and the presence of catastrophic error propagation. We prove that all recursive quantum convolutional encoder have catastrophic error propagation. In our constructions, the convolutional codes have thus been chosen to be non-catastrophic and non-recursive.
While the resulting families of turbo-codes have bounded minimum distance,
from a pragmatic point of view the effective minimum distances of the codes that we have simulated are large enough not to degrade the iterative decoding performance up to reasonable word error rates and block sizes. With well chosen constituent convolutional codes, we observe an important reduction of the word error rate as the code length increases. },

Thus, there is in general no better algorithm to solve this problem than exhaustively going through all $N$ configurations of the system to determine the one with lowest energy, requiring a running time proportional to $N$. A quantum computer, if it could be built, could solve this problem in time $\sqrt N$. Here, we present a powerful extension of this result to the case of interacting {\em quantum} particles, demonstrating that a quantum computer can prepare the ground state of a quantum system as efficiently as it does for classical systems. },

Abstract = {The energy shell structure of a single exciton confined in a self-assembled quantum dot (QD), including excited states, is studied in a regime where the direct Coulomb attraction energy is comparable to the kinetic energy of the carriers. This is achieved via magnetophotoluminescence excitation spectroscopy experiments, where a magnetic field applied perpendicular to the plane of the QD is used to reveal the angular-momentum content of energy shells. The absorption spectrum of the QDs is modeled, and comparison with experiment allows us to relate the observed transitions to interband QD bound-state transitions. The blueshift of the absorption peaks compared to the emission peaks is then interpreted in terms of many-body interactions, and we show that for a highly symmetric situation, the observed energy difference gives a direct measurement of the extra exchange energy gained upon addition of an extra exciton in the QD. {\copyright} 2008 The American Physical Society.},

abstract = {We show that an insulated electrostatic gate can be used to strongly suppress ubiquitous background charge noise in Schottky-gated GaAs/AlGaAs devices. Via a 2D self-consistent simulation of the conduction band profile we show that this observation can be explained by reduced leakage of electrons from the Schottky gates into the semiconductor through the Schottky barrier, consistent with the effect of "bias cooling." Upon noise reduction, the noise power spectrum generally changes from Lorentzian to 1/f type. By comparing wafers with different Al content, we exclude that DX centers play a dominant role in the charge noise.},

Abstract = {Belief propagation --- a powerful heuristic method to solve inference problems involving a large number of random variables --- was recently generalized to quantum theory. Like its classical counterpart, this algorithm is exact on trees when the appropriate independence conditions are met and is expected to provide reliable approximations when operated on loopy graphs. In this paper, we benchmark the performances of loopy quantum belief propagation (QBP) in the context of finite-temperature quantum many-body physics. Our results indicate that QBP provides reliable estimates of the high-temperature correlation function when the typical loop size in the graph is large. As such, it is suitable e.g. for the study of quantum spin glasses on Bethe lattices and the decoding of sparse quantum error correction codes. },

Abstract = {We address the problem of decoding sparse quantum error correction codes. For Pauli channels, this task can be accomplished by a version of the belief propagation algorithm used for decoding sparse classical codes. Quantum codes pose two new challenges however. Firstly, their Tanner graph unavoidably contain small loops which typically undermines the performance of belief propagation. Secondly, sparse quantum codes are by definition highly degenerate. The standard belief propagation algorithm does not exploit this feature, but rather it is impaired by it. We propose heuristic methods to improve belief propagation decoding, specifically targeted at these two problems.
While our results exhibit a clear improvement due to the proposed heuristic methods, they also indicate that the main source of errors in the quantum coding scheme remains in the decoding. },

Abstract = {We present a theory of quantum serial turbo-codes and study their performance numerically on a depolarization channel. These codes can be considered as a generalization of classical serial turbo-codes. As their classical cousins, they can be iteratively decoded and with well chosen constituent convolutional codes, we observe an important reduction of the word error rate as the number of encoded qubits increases.
Our construction offers several advantages over quantum LDPC codes. First, the Tanner graph used for decoding can be chosen to be free of 4-cycles that deteriorate the performances of iterative decoding. Secondly, the iterative decoder makes explicit use of the code's degeneracy. Finally, there is complete freedom in the code design in terms of length, rate, memory size, and interleaver choice.
We address two issues related to the encoding of convolutional codes that are directly relevant for turbo-codes, namely the character of being recursive and non-catastrophic. We define a quantum analogue of a state diagram that provides an efficient way to verify these properties on a given quantum convolutional encoder. Unfortunately, we also prove that all recursive quantum convolutional encoder have catastrophic error propagation. In our constructions, the convolutional codes have thus been chosen to be non-catastrophic and non-recursive. While the resulting families of turbo-codes have bounded minimum distance, from a pragmatic point of view the effective minimum distances of the codes that we have simulated are large enough for not degrading iterative decoding performance up to reasonable word error rates and block sizes.},

Using a Hubbard model supported by microscopic calculations we show that, by localizing a single electron spin in one of the dots, the current through the TQD molecule depends not only on the flux but also on the relative orientation of the spin of the incoming and localized electrons.

Abstract = {In the context of constrained quantum mechanics, reference systems are used to construct relational observables that are invariant under the action of the symmetry group. Upon measurement of a relational observable, the reference system undergoes an unavoidable measurement "back-action" that modifies its properties. In a quantum-gravitational setting, it has been argued that such a back-action may produce effects that are described at an effective level as a form of deformed (or doubly) special relativity. We examine this possibility using a simple constrained system that has been extensively studied in the context of quantum information. While our conclusions support the idea of a symmetry deformation, they also reveal a host of other effects that may be relevant to the context of quantum gravity, and could potentially conceal the symmetry deformation.},

abstract = {The rapid rise of spintronics and quantum information science has led to a strong interest in developing the ability to coherently manipulate electron spins(1). Electron spin resonance(2) is a powerful technique for manipulating spins that is commonly achieved by applying an oscillating magnetic field. However, the technique has proven very challenging when addressing individual spins(3-5). In contrast, by mixing the spin and charge degrees of freedom in a controlled way through engineered non-uniform magnetic fields, electron spin can be manipulated electrically without the need of high-frequency magnetic fields(6,7). Here we report experiments in which electrically driven addressable spin rotations on two individual electrons were realized by integrating a micrometre-size ferromagnet into a double-quantum-dot device. We find that it is the stray magnetic field of the micromagnet that enables the electrical control and spin selectivity. The results suggest that our approach can be tailored to multidot architecture and therefore could open an avenue towards manipulating electron spins electrically in a scalable way.},

Abstract = {Belief Propagation algorithms acting on Graphical Models of classical probability distributions, such as Markov Networks, Factor Graphs and Bayesian Networks, are amongst the most powerful known methods for deriving probabilistic inferences amongst large numbers of random variables. This paper presents a generalization of these concepts and methods to the quantum case, based on the idea that quantum theory can be thought of as a noncommutative, operator-valued, generalization of classical probability theory. Some novel characterizations of quantum conditional independence are derived, and definitions of Quantum n-Bifactor Networks, Markov Networks, Factor Graphs and Bayesian Networks are proposed. The structure of Quantum Markov Networks is investigated and some partial characterization results are obtained, along the lines of the Hammersely-Clifford theorem. A Quantum Belief Propagation algorithm is presented and is shown to converge on 1-Bifactor Networks and Markov Networks when the underlying graph is a tree. The use of Quantum Belief Propagation as a heuristic algorithm in cases where it is not known to converge is discussed. Applications to decoding quantum error correcting codes and to the simulation of many-body quantum systems are described. },

The phenomenon occurs only when the number of electrons in the quantum dot is larger than ∼30. We find the onset of the spin-droplet regime at ν=5/2. This proposes a finite-geometry alternative to the Moore-Read-type Pfaffian state of the bulk two-dimensional electron gas. Hence, the spin-droplet formation may be related to the observed fragility of the ν=5/2 quantum Hall state in narrow quantum point contacts. {\copyright} 2008 The American Physical Society.},

The MIRO-related transitions can be observed in absorption and we demonstrate it experimentally for the first time using EPR-cavity absorption technique. Next we investigate MIROs and Shubnikov-de Haas (SdH) oscillations at milli-Kelvin temperatures. We find that MIROs persist to approximately three times lower magnetic field as compared with the SdH oscillations, which at temperatures below 50 mK are defined purely by the quantum relaxation time.

We have investigated this photovoltaic (PV) effect on GaAs/Ga1-x Alx As Aharonov-Bohm rings at temperatures varying between 30 mK and 1 K. The rf induced PV voltage is a purely mesoscopic effect which exhibits both periodic and aperiodic magnetic flux dependences with zero average value. The harmonics content and symmetry of this flux dependent PV voltage close to zero field depend on the radiation frequency compared to the inverse diffusion time around the sample. The frequency dependence also exhibits sharp resonances which position sign and amplitude strongly depend on magnetic field. We attribute these resonances to the presence of two level systems at resonance with the frequency of the electromagnetic field. 2007 The American Physical Society.},

Abstract = {We report on photoluminescence experiments carried out at very low temperatures and with magnetic fields up to 28T. performed on a high mobility two-dimensional electron gas GaAs/AlGaAs quantum well. Our experiments show that clear signatures of the v =1/3, 2/5, 3/7, 3/5, 2/3, 1 sequence of the FQHE states can also be easily visible even in raw magneto-photoluminescence spectra. Theoretical calculations of excitonic transitions suggest that an explanation of the red shift of emission energy at the Hall plateau boundary may be due to the appearance of additional free charged quasi-particles that bind to an exciton, forming a fractionally charged exciton whose emission energy is expected to be lower, in analogy to well known charged excitons in n-type semiconductors. The magnitude of the shift is a measure of the fractionally charged exciton binding energy. Emission in the insulating state of 2DEG at v = 1/3 is attributed to a neutral quasi-exciton whose complicated energy dispersion results in an emission doublet with its low energy line due to the recombination from excited excitonic states. {\copyright} 2007 American Institute of Physics.},

Abstract = {We analyze a quantum mechanical gyroscope which is modeled as a large
spin and used as a reference against which to measure the angular
momenta of spin-1/2 particles. These measurements induce a
back-action on the reference which is the central focus of our study.
We begin by deriving explicit expressions for the quantum channel
representing the back-action. Then, we analyze the dynamics
incurred by the reference when it is used to sequentially measure
particles drawn from a fixed ensemble. We prove that the reference
thermalizes with the measured particles and find that generically, the
thermal state is reached in time which scales linearly with the size
of the reference. This contrasts a recent conclusion of Bartlett et
al. that this takes a quadratic amount of time when the particles are
completely unpolarized. We now understand their result in terms of a
simple physical principle based on symmetries and conservation laws.
Finally, we initiate the study of the non-equilibrium dynamics of the
reference. Here we find that a reference in a coherent state will
essentially remain in one when measuring polarized particles, while
rotating itself to ultimately align with the polarization of the
particles. },

Abstract = {Deformed Special Relativity (DSR) is a candidate phenomenological theory to describe the Quantum Gravitational (QG) semi-classical regime. A possible interpretation of DSR can be derived from the notion of deformed reference frame. Observables in (quantum) General Relativity can be constructed from (quantum) reference frame -- a physical observable is then a relation between a system of interest and the reference frame. We present a toy model and study an example of such quantum relational observables. We show how the intrinsic quantum nature of the reference frame naturally leads to a deformation of the symmetries, comforting DSR to be a good candidate to describe the QG semi-classical regime.},

Abstract = {The decay of quasi-persistent circulating currents in the dissipationless quantum Hall regime has been observed. The currents induced by a time-varying magnetic field flow within a two-dimensional electron system (2DES) embedded in a GaAs-(Al,Ga)As heterojunction. The associated magnetic moment is measured using a highly sensitive magnetometer. The currents are observed to continue circulating for many hours after the magnetic field sweep is stopped indicating a very low sheet resistivity. Two distinct current decay regimes are observed, consisting of an initial exponential decay lasting a few tens of seconds followed by a much slower power-law decay. The presence of the fast initial decay, during which the current falls typically to half of its original value, indicates that the system is initially quite dissipative because the quantum Hall effect (QHE) has broken down due to the large induced current. As the current decays, the quasi-dissipationless QHE state recovers, resulting in the much slower decay, which the data suggest will persist for at least several days, much longer than has previously been suggested. The power-law form of the long decay suggests multiple relaxation paths for the system to return to equilibrium, each having a different characteristic time constant. This can equivalently be thought of as a resistivity which gradually falls with current. {\copyright} IOP Publishing Ltd and Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft.},

Using optical spectroscopy, we show that the two flux quanta in a composite fermion interacting with an exciton (a bound state of an electron and a hole) lead to filling-factor-dependent features in the optical emission spectrum, which are symmetric around filling factor v = 1/2, and fractionally charged excitations lead to fractionally charged excitons. In the vicinity of the incompressible v = 1/3 state we observe a doublet structure in the emission line, corresponding to excitations of the incompressible fluid. At filling factors v > 1/3, corresponding to the transition to a compressible metallic state, a new emission line appears, which we attribute to the fractionally charged quasi-exciton. {\copyright}2006 Nature Publishing Group.},

Abstract = {We consider the problem of optimally decoding a quantum error correction code --- that is to find the optimal recovery procedure given the outcomes of partial "check" measurements on the system. In general, this problem is NP-hard. However, we demonstrate that for concatenated block codes, the optimal decoding can be efficiently computed using a message passing algorithm. We compare the performance of the message passing algorithm to that of the widespread blockwise hard decoding technique. Our Monte Carlo results using the 5 qubit and Steane's code on a depolarizing channel demonstrate significant advantages of the message passing algorithms in two respects. 1) Optimal decoding increases by as much as 94% the error threshold below which the error correction procedure can be used to reliably send information over a noisy channel. 2) For noise levels below these thresholds, the probability of error after optimal decoding is suppressed at a significantly higher rate, leading to a substantial reduction of the error correction overhead.},

Abstract = {In the absence of an external frame of reference --- i.e. in background independent theories such as general relativity --- physical degrees of freedom must describe {em relations} between systems. Using a simple model, we investigate how such a relational quantum theory naturally arises by promoting reference systems to the status of dynamical entities. Our goal is twofold. First, we demonstrate using elementary quantum theory how any quantum mechanical experiment admits a purely relational description at a fundamental level. Second, we describe how the original "non-relational" theory approximately emerges from the fully relational theory when reference systems become semi-classical. Our technique is motivated by a Bayesian approach to quantum mechanics, and relies on the noiseless subsystem method of quantum information science used to protect quantum states against undesired noise. The relational theory naturally predicts a fundamental decoherence mechanism, so an arrow of time emerges from a time-symmetric theory. Moreover, our model circumvents the problem of the "collapse of the wave packet" as the probability interpretation is only ever applied to diagonal density operators. Finally, the physical states of the relational theory can be described in terms of "spin networks" introduced by Penrose as a combinatorial description of geometry, and widely studied in the loop formulation of quantum gravity. Thus, our simple bottom-up approach (starting from the semi-classical limit to derive the fully relational quantum theory) may offer interesting insights on the low energy limit of quantum gravity. },

Abstract = {Recent developments in single and double electrostatically confined quantum dots have shown that these devices are promising candidates for the implementation of quantum computation schemes in solid state systems. One of the obstacles for such an accomplishment is scalability. We present here the first realization of a triple lateral quantum dot with a few number of electrons, going down to fundamental configurations such as the vacuum state (no electrons in the system) or one electron in each quantum dot. New phenomena unseen in single or double dots are revealed involving charge and spin reconfigurations within the system, reminiscent of quantum cellular automata (QCA) functionalities. More importantly, it is necessary to understand these phenomena for they will be present in any three or more coupled quantum dots system. An equivalent circuit analysis of the system is used to reproduce these new features and to highlight some differences between experiments and the model, possibly arising from quantum phenomena not included in the circuit analysis. {\copyright} 2006 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

In this Letter we map out experimentally the stability diagram of the few-electron triple dot system, the electron configuration map as a function of the external tuning parameters, and reveal experimentally for the first time the existence of quadruple points, a signature of the three dots being in resonance. In the vicinity of these quadruple points we observe a duplication of charge transfer transitions related to charge and spin reconfigurations triggered by changes in the total electron occupation number.

Abstract = {We report the first experimental realization of a semiconductor triple quantum dot system in a few electrons regime. Charging properties of this "artificial tri-atom" are studied using non-invasive charge detection technique. The most fundamental configuration was initialized in which a single electron is shared resonantly between the three dots and also equivalent arrangements involving two or three electrons. Using gates we are able to tune through the quadruple points, a unique feature of triple dot systems. At a quadruple point the quantum states in all three dots resonantly coincide with each other and with the chemical potential of the leads. Unexpectedly, novel charge re-arrangement lines were observed in vicinity of quadruple points. The observed charge re-arrangement can be viewed as a basic realization of quantum cellular automata in the few electron regime. Such phenomenon may be expected for all multiple quantum dot systems greater than two, in which a change in the state of one dot may instantaneously trigger a charge rearrangement of the system. The results may lead to new opportunities for fundamental physics research and for other applications, e.g. quantum computing. {\copyright} 2006 Crown Copyright.},

At low frequencies regular MIROs were observed, with a periodicity determined by the ratio of the microwave to cyclotron frequencies. For frequencies below 150 GHz the magnetic field dependence of MIROs waveform is well described by a simplified version of an existing theoretical model, where the damping is controlled by the width of the Landau levels. In the THz frequency range MIROs vanish and only pronounced resistance changes are observed at the cyclotron resonance.

Abstract = {We demonstrate that the magnetoconductance of small lateral quantum dots in the strongly-coupled regime (i.e. when the leads can support one or more propagating modes) shows a pronounced splitting of the conductance peaks and dips which persists over a wide range of magnetic fields (from zero field to the edge-state regime) and is virtually independent of the magnetic field strength. Our numerical analysis of the conductance based on the Hubbard Hamiltonian demonstrates that this is essentially a many-body/spin effect that can be traced to a splitting of degenerate levels in the corresponding closed dot. The above effect in open dots can be regarded as a counterpart of the Coulomb blockade effect in weakly coupled dots, with the difference, however, that the splitting of the peaks originates from the interaction between the electrons of opposite spin. {\copyright} 2005 American Institute of Physics.},

This behavior is interpreted in terms of a template-controlled quantum-dot diameter and is corroborated by the observed diamagnetic shifts. {\copyright} 2005 American Institute of Physics.},

Abstract = {We present a unified approach to quantum error correction, called
operator quantum error correction. Our scheme relies on a generalized notion of noiseless subsystem that is investigated here. By combining active error correction with this generalized noiseless subsystems method, we arrive at the unified approach which incorporates the known techniques --- i.e. the standard error correction model, the method of decoherence-free subspaces, and the noiseless subsystem method --- as special cases. Moreover, we demonstrate that the quantum error correction condition from the standard model is a necessary
condition for all known methods of quantum error correction.},

title = {Origin of switching noise in GaAs/AlxGa1-xAs lateral gated devices},
abstract = {We have studied switching (telegraph) noise at low temperature in GaAs/AlxGa1-xAs heterostructures with lateral gates and introduced a model for its origin, which explains why noise can be suppressed by cooling samples with a positive bias on the gates. The noise was measured by monitoring the conductance fluctuations around e(2)/h on the first step of a quantum point contact at around 1.2 K. Cooling with a positive bias on the gates dramatically reduces this noise, while an asymmetric bias exacerbates it. Our model is that the noise originates from a leakage current of electrons that tunnel through the Schottky barrier under the gate into the conduction band and become trapped near the active region of the device. The key to reducing noise is to keep the barrier opaque under experimental conditions. Cooling with a positive bias on the gates reduces the density of ionized donors. This builds in an effective negative gate voltage so that a smaller negative bias is needed to reach the desired operating point. This suppresses tunneling from the gate and hence the noise. The reduction in the density of ionized donors also strengthens the barrier to tunneling at a given applied voltage. Further support for the model comes from our direct observation of the leakage current into a closed quantum dot, around 10(-20) A for this device. The current was detected by a neighboring quantum point contact, which showed monotonic steps in time associated with the tunneling of single electrons into the dot. If asymmetric gate voltages are applied, our model suggests that the noise will increase as a consequence of the more negative gate voltage applied to one of the gates to maintain the same device conductance. We observe exactly this behavior in our experiments.},

Abstract = {We study the role of the information deposited in the environment of
an open quantum system in course of the decoherence process. Redundant
spreading of information --- the fact that some observables of the
system can be independently "read-off" from many distinct fragments
of the environment --- is investigated as the key to effective
objectivity, the essential ingredient of "classical reality". This
focus on the environment as a communication channel through which
observers learn about physical systems underscores importance of
quantum Darwinism --- selective proliferation of information about
"the fittest states" chosen by the dynamics of decoherence at the
expense of their superpositions --- as redundancy imposes the
existence of preferred observables. We demonstrate that the only
observables that can leave multiple imprints in the environment are
the familiar pointer observables singled out by
environment-induced superselection (einselection) for their
predictability. Many independent observers monitoring the environment
will therefore agree on properties of the system as they can only
learn about preferred observables. In this operational sense, the
selective spreading of information leads to appearance of an objective
"classical reality" from within quantum substrate.},

Abstract = {We study macroscopic observables defined as the total value of a physical quantity over a collection of quantum systems. We show that previous results obtained for infinite ensemble of identically prepared systems lead to incorrect conclusions for finite ensembles. In particular, exact measurement of a macroscopic observable significantly disturbs the state of any finite ensemble. However, we show how this disturbance can be made arbitrarily small when the measurement are of finite accuracy. We demonstrate a general tradeoff between state disturbance and measurement coarseness as a function of the size of the ensemble. Using this tradeoff, we show that the histories generated by any sequence of finite accuracy macroscopic measurements always generate a consistent family in the absence of large scale entanglement, for sufficiently large ensembles. Hence, macroscopic observables behave "classically" provided that their accuracy is coarser than the quantum correlation length-scale of the system. The role of these observable is also discussed in the context of NMR quantum information processing and bulk ensemble quantum state tomography. },

Abstract = {Operator quantum error correction is a recently developed theory that provides a generalized framework for active error correction and passive error avoiding schemes. In this paper, we describe these codes in the stabilizer formalism of standard quantum error correction theory. This is achieved by adding a "gauge" group to the standard stabilizer definition of a code that defines an equivalence class between encoded states. Gauge transformations leave the encoded information unchanged; their effect is absorbed by virtual gauge qubits that do not carry useful information. We illustrate the construction by identifying a gauge symmetry in Shor's 9-qubit code that allows us to remove 4 of its 8 stabilizer generators, leading to a simpler decoding procedure and a wider class of logical operations without affecting its essential properties. This opens the path to possible improvements of the error threshold of fault-tolerant quantum computing. },

Abstract = {Charge-neutral droplets of electrons and holes in Quantum Dots (QDs) are probed optically. The application of strong magnetic fields creates a typical pattern of levels shifting and crossing, which closely resembles that of a single particle Fock-Darwin (F-D) spectrum. We show that the relevant particle in this context is an exciton whose behavior is dominated by the single particle character of both electron and hole due to the wavefunction symmetry in the QDs. However, precise quantitative analysis can be performed introducing many-body effects where direct Coulomb interaction, exchange energy and configuration coupling contribute to renormalization of the emission energies and alteration of the F-D spectra. Wavefunction symmetry plays a role in imposing quasi-degenerate transitions at specific magnetic fields whereby hybridization of states with opposing magnetic field dependence creates a cancellation of the level shifting for a limited range of magnetic fields.},

abstract = {The current noise density S2 of a conductor in equilibrium, the Johnson noise, is determined by its temperature T: S2 = 4kBTG, with G the conductance. The sample's noise temperature TN = S2/(4kBG) generalizes T for a system out of equilibrium. We introduce the "noise thermal impedance" of a sample as the ratio Î´TNÏ‰/Î´PJÏ‰ of the amplitude Î´TNÏ‰ of the oscillation of TN when heated by an oscillating power Î´PJÏ‰ at frequency Ï‰. For a macroscopic sample, it is the usual thermal impedance. We show for a diffusive wire how this (complex) frequency-dependent quantity gives access to the electron-phonon interaction time in a long wire and to the diffusion time in a shorter one, and how its real part may also give access to the electron-electron inelastic time. These times are not simply accessible from the frequency dependence of S2 itself. 2005 The American Physical Society.},

Abstract = {Two transport techniques are described for performing charge redistribution spectroscopy at a fixed electron number. In the first method we simply apply the well established 'Cambridge' QPC charge detector technique to a dot with no leads to external reservoirs. In the second technique we use two dots in series in the regime where the electrochemical potential of only one of the dots is aligned with the external leads. In this case the transport involves co-tunneling processes through the second dot. Charge rearrangements occurring in one dot are picked up through shifts in the electrochemical potential of the other. We perform proof of concept demonstrations using well characterised transitions in the vicinity of filling factor 2 to confirm that both techniques can be used for charge redistribution spectroscopy. We discuss why such spectroscopy can provide new information about complex many-body spin phenomena in quantum dots. {\copyright} 2005 American Institute of Physics.},

Abstract = {Single-electron charging in an individual InAs quantum dot was observed by electrostatic force measurements with an atomic-force microscope (AFM). The resonant frequency shift and the dissipated energy of an oscillating AFM cantilever were measured as a function of the tip-back electrode voltage, and the resulting spectra show distinct jumps when the tip was positioned above the dot. The observed jumps in the frequency shift, with corresponding peaks in dissipation, are attributed to a single-electron tunneling between the dot and the back electrode governed by the Coulomb blockade effect, and are consistent with a model based on the free energy of the system. The observed phenomenon may be regarded as the "force version" of the Coulomb blockade effect. {\copyright} 2005 The American Physical Society.},

Abstract = {In this work we address experimentally a number of unresolved issues related to microwave induced resistance oscillations (MIROs) leading to the zero-resistance states observed recently on 2D electron gases in GaAs AlGaAs heterostructures. We stress the importance of the electrodynamic effects detected in both reflection and absorption experiments, although they are not revealed in transport experiments on very high mobility samples. We also study the exact waveform of MIROs and their damping due to temperature. A simple equation is given, which can be considered as phenomenological, which describes precisely the experimental MIROs waveform. The waveform depends only on a single parameter-the width of the Landau levels, which is related to the quantum lifetime. A very good correlation was found between the temperature dependencies of the quantum lifetime from MIROs and the transport scattering time from the electron mobility with a ratio τtr τq 20. It is found that the prefactor in the equation for MIROs decays as 1 T2 with the temperature which can be explained within the distribution function model suggested by Dmitriev. The results are compared with measurements of the Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations down to 30mK on the same sample. {\copyright} 2005 The American Physical Society.},

Abstract = {We have performed simultaneous measurements of microwave absorption/reflection and magneto-transport characteristics of a high-mobility two-dimensional electrons in GaAs-AlGaAs heterostructure in the regime of microwave-induced resistance oscillations (MIROs). It is shown that the electrodynamic aspect of the problem is important in these experiments. In the absorption experiments, a broad cyclotron resonance line was observed due to a large reflection from the highly conductive electron gas. There were no additional features observed related to absorption at harmonics of the cyclotron resonance. In near-field reflection experiments, a very different oscillation pattern was revealed when compared to MIROs. The oscillation pattern observed in the reflection experiments is probably due to plasma effects occurring in a finite-size sample. The whole microscopic picture of MIROs is more complicated than simply a resonant absorption at harmonics of the cyclotron resonance. Nevertheless, the experimental observations are in good agreement with the model by Ryzhii et al. involving the photo-assisted scattering in the presence of a crossed magnetic field and dc bias. The observed damping factor of MIROs may be attributed to a change in the electron mobility as a function of temperature.},

Abstract = {A set of self-assembled InAs/GaAs quantum dot (QD) samples annealed at various temperatures for 30 s was studied using magneto-photoluminescence up to 28 T. Blueshifts increasing with annealing temperature, due to Ga-As interchange at the QD-barrier interface, are correlated with a reduction in inhomogeneous broadening and a reduction in inter-sublevel spacing. These new sample properties allow us to obtain clear crossing patterns closely matched with Fock-Darwin diagrams where the field applied perpendicular to the QD plane lifts the state degeneracies. In the limit that in-plane electron and hole wavefunction extension is the same, the splitting of the p-shell with magnetic field is inversely proportional to the in-plane exciton reduced mass. We use this to obtain the evolution of the latter with intermixing, and compare with predictions of single-particle k * p calculations.},

It has been found that the PLE spectrum at zero magnetic field, with detection energy set at the ground state (s-shell) of the QDs, is dominated by two features. These have been attributed to absorption in the QDs p- and d-shell, respectively. The peaks split in magnetic field following the pattern of the Fock-Darwin potential and features, attributed to the lowest Landau level in the QDs can be observed in high magnetic field. {\copyright} 2003 Elsevier B.V.

Abstract = {We present two polarization-based protocols for quantum key
distribution. The protocols encode key bits in noiseless
subspaces or subsystems, and so can function over a quantum
channel subjected to an arbitrary degree of collective noise, as
occurs, for instance, due to rotation of polarizations in an
optical fiber. These protocols can be implemented using only
entangled photon-pair sources, single-photon rotations,
and single-photon detectors. Thus, our proposals offer practical and
realistic alternatives to existing schemes for quantum key
distribution over optical fibers without resorting to interferometry
or two-way quantum communication, thereby circumventing,
respectively, the need for high precision timing and the threat of
Trojan horse attacks.},

Abstract = { We report an efficient
quantum algorithm for estimating the local density of states (LDOS)
on a quantum computer.
The LDOS describes the redistribution of
energy levels of a quantum system under the influence of a
perturbation. Sometimes known as the "strength function" from
nuclear spectroscopy experiments, the shape of the LDOS is directly
related to the survivial probability of unperturbed eigenstates, and
has recently been related to the fidelity decay (or "Loschmidt
echo") under imperfect motion-reversal.
For quantum systems that can be simulated
efficiently on a quantum computer, the LDOS
estimation algorithm enables an exponential speed-up over
direct classical computation. },

Abstract = {We demonstrate that the magnetoconductance of small lateral quantum dots in the strongly coupled regime (i.e. when the leads can support one or more propagating modes) shows a pronounced splitting of the conductance peaks and dips which persists over a wide range of magnetic fields (from zero field to the edge-state regime) and is virtually independent of the magnetic field strength. Our numerical analysis of the conductance based on the Hubbard Hamiltonian demonstrates that this is essentially a many-body/spin effect that can be traced to a splitting of degenerate levels in the corresponding closed dot. The above effect in open dots can be regarded as a counterpart of the Coulomb-blockade effect in weakly coupled dots, with the difference, however, that the splitting of the peaks originates from interactions between electrons of opposite spin.},

Abstract = {We report results of calculations of the effect of spin-orbit interaction on electron spin relaxation in a lateral quantum dot. Our study is motivated by puzzling results of high source-drain transport measurements of singlet-triplet transition of two electrons in lateral and vertical devices that show a strong asymmetry as a function of the applied magnetic field. On the low magnetic field side of the singlet-triplet transition, both the singlet ground state and the excited triplet state are experimentally resolved. Once the triplet becomes ground state, the singlet excited state is no longer observed. By exact diagonalization techniques, we evaluate the energy levels of a two-electron droplet in the presence of both Dresselhaus and Rashba contributions to the spin-orbit interaction. We then evaluate the energy relaxation rates for the two-electron droplet through the emission of LA phonons and show that they are strongly dependent on the spin of the energy levels involved in the process: transitions involving spin singlet and unpolarized triplet states remain forbidden even in the presence of spin-orbit interaction. This dephasing mechanism presents a built-in magnetic field asymmetry in qualitative agreement with experimental findings. {\copyright} 2003 Published by Elsevier B.V.},

the environment. Observers who---as it is almost always the
case---discover the state of the system indirectly (by probing a
fraction of its environment) will find out only about the
corresponding pointer observable. Many observers can act in this
fashion independently and without perturbing the system: they will
agree about the state of the system. In this operational sense, em
preferred pointer states exist objectively.},

The phase of the oscillations is such that the decrease (increase) in the longitudinal resistance is accompanied by an increase (decrease) in the absolute value of the Hall resistance.

Abstract = {We have performed microwave absorption and near-field reflection experiments on a high mobility GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure for the same conditions for which Microwave-Induced Resistance Oscillations (MIROs) are observed. It is shown that the electrodynamic aspect of the problem is important in these experiments. In the absorption experiments a broad CR line was observed due to a large reflection from the highly conductive electron gas. There were no additional features observed related to absorption at harmonics of the cyclotron resonance. In near-field reflection experiments a very different oscillation pattern was revealed when compared to MIROs. The oscillation pattern observed in the reflection experiments is probably due to plasma effects occurring in a finite-size sample. The whole microscopic picture of MIROs is more complicated than simply a resonant absorption at harmonics of the cyclotron resonance. Nevertheless, the experimental observations are in good agreement with the model by Durst et al. involving the photo-assisted scattering in the presence of a crossed magnetic field and dc bias. The observed damping factor of MIROs may be attributed to a change in the electron mobility as a function of temperature. MIROs may be considered as a light-induced drift effect, a broad class of phenomena associated with a light-induced asymmetry in the velocity distribution function. {\copyright} World Scientific Publishing Company.},

Abstract = {In a recent paper, Phys. Rev. Lett. 87, 167010/1-4 (2001), Moukouri and Jarrell presented evidence that in the two-dimensional (d=2) Hubbard model at half-filling there is a metal-insulator transition (MIT) at finite temperature even in weak coupling. While we agree with the numerical results of that paper, we arrive at different conclusions: The apparent gap at finite-temperature can be understood, at weak-coupling, as a crossover phenomenon involving large (but not infinite) antiferromagnetic (AFM) correlation length. Phase-space effects on the self-energy in d=2 are crucial, as are the ratio between AFM correlation length and single-particle thermal de Broglie wavelength. In weak coupling, d=2, there is in general no finite-temperature MIT transition in the thermodynamic sense.},

Abstract = {Measurements and calculations previously reported for a lateral quantum dot at magnetic fields close to the transition to the maximum density droplet provided evidence that the increase of spin polarisation of a dot with magnetic field is interrupted by spin depolarization events. The loss of spin polarisation is associated with correlated states corresponding to condensation of spin excitons into spin textures. In this paper a detailed experimental and theoretical analysis is performed of the excitation spectra at the first two spin flip events in a few electron quantum dot. In this less complicated regime we are able to identify these correlated states as spin and charge excitons and bi-excitons. In particular we focus on a dot containing eight electrons. Coulomb blockade experiments, supported by detailed calculations, confirm the presence of these correlated states at the second spin flip.},

The technique we have developed, where tubes are soldered on low-resistive metallic contacts across a slit, enables a good characterization of the samples by transmission electron microscopy. It is possible to obtain individual tubes with a room-temperature resistance smaller than 40 kfl, which remain metallic down to very low temperatures. When the contact pads are superconducting, nanotubes exhibit proximity-induced superconductivity with surprisingly large values of supercurrent. We have also recently observed intrinsic superconductivity in ropes of single-walled carbon nanotubes connected to normal contacts, when the distance between the normal electrodes is large enough, since otherwise superconductivity is destroyed by (inverse) proximity effect. These experiments indicate the presence of attractive interactions in carbon nanotubes which overcome Coulomb repulsive interactions at low temperature, and enable investigation of superconductivity in a one-dimensional limit never explored before.},

abstract = {Carbon nanotubes may constitute the ultimate conducting wires for nano-electronics, with their diameters as small as a few tens of atoms and their length of order one micrometer. Because of the particular band structure of graphite, nanotubes have at most two conducting channels, which makes them a one dimensional conductor with very exotic properties. Experimental investigations have indeed shown non conventional features, such as non-ohmic behavior, superconductivity and an ability to carry a huge current density. We have carried out shot noise measurements on nanotubes which are suspended between metallic electrodes. One consequence of the suspended geometry is a very low 1/f noise, thereby enabling the extraction of shot noise. In bundles of nanotubes, we find a reduction of shot noise by more than a factor 100 compared to the full noise 2.e.I expected for uncorrelated electrons. A low noise is also found in an isolated single wall nanotube. In a simple non-interacting-electron picture, such a low shot noise implies that the electrical conduction through a bundle of nanotubes is concentrated in a few ballistic tubes. Another interpretation however would be that a substantial fraction of the tubes conduct with a strong reduction of the effective charge (more than a factor 50) due to electron-electron interaction.},

The zero field spectrum exhibits a number of inhomogeneously broadened peaks similar to the highly excited spectrum of InAs/GaAs quantum dots in which emission from excited states can be observed. However, for InAs/InP dots, application of a magnetic field in the Faraday configuration reveals only weak diamagnetic shifts, thus proving that the transitions originate from zero angular momentum states consistent with ground state emission from distinct families of islands present in the sample. The diamagnetic shift is observed to increase as the thickness of the island family increases. Calculations performed assuming a flat disc geometry show that the latter effect can be accounted for by the change in carrier effective mass as the dot thickness increases.},

Abstract = {The magnetoresistance associated with quantum interference corrections in a high mobility, gated InxGa1-sAs/InP quantum well structure is studied as a function of temperature, gate voltage, and angle of the tilted magnetic field. Particular attention is paid to the experimental extraction of phase-breaking and spin-orbit scattering times when weak anti-localization effects are prominent. Compared with metals and low mobility semiconductors the characteristic magnetic field Btr=ℏ /4eDτ in high mobility samples is very small and the experimental dependencies of the interference effects extend to fields several hundreds of times larger. Fitting experimental results under these conditions therefore requires theories valid for arbitrary magnetic field. It was found, however, that such a theory was unable to fit the experimental data without introducing an extra, empirical, scale factor of about 2. Measurements in tilted magnetic fields and as a function of temperature established that both the weak localization and the weak antilocalization effects have the same, orbital origin. Fits to the data confirmed that the width of the low field feature, whether a weak localization or a weak antilocalization peak, is determined by the phase-breaking time and also established that the universal (negative) magnetoresistance observed in the high field limit is associated with a temperature independent spin-orbit scattering time.},

Abstract = {There is currently a large effort to explore spin-orbit effects in semiconductor structures with the ultimate goal of manipulating electron spins with gates. A search for materials with large spin-orbit coupling is therefore important. We report results of a study of spin-orbit effects in a strained InGaAs/InP quantum well. The spin-orbit relaxation time, determined from the weak antilocalization effect, was found to depend nonmonotonically on gate voltage. The spin-orbit scattering rate had a maximum value of 5 × 10 10 s(-1) at an electron density of n = 3 × 10 15 m(-2). The scattering rate decreased from this for both increasing and decreasing densities. The smallest measured value was approximately 10 9 s(-1) at an electron concentration of n = 6 × 10 15 m(-2). This behavior could not be explained by either the Rashba or the bulk Dresselhaus mechanisms but is attributed to asymmetry or strain effects at dissimilar quantum well interfaces. {\copyright} 2003 MAIK "Nauka/ Interperiodica".},

abstract = {The signature of phase coherence on the electric and magnetic response of 10^{5} nonconnected aharonov-bohm rings is measured by a resonant method at 350 MHz between 20 mK and 500 mK. The rings are etched in a GaAs-Al_{x}Ga_{1-x}As heterojunction. Both quantities exhibit an oscillating behavior with a periodicity consistent with half a flux quantum Ï†_{0}/2 = h/2e in a ring. We find that electric screening is enhanced when time-reversal symmetry is broken by magnetic field, leading, to a positive magnetopolarizability, in agreement with theoretical predictions for isolated rings at finite frequency. Temperature and electronic-density dependences are investigated. The dissipative part of the electric response, the electric absorption, is also measured and leads to a negative magnetoconductance. The magnetic orbital response of the very same rings is also investigated. It is consistent with diamagnetic persistent currents of 0.25 nA. This magnetic response is an order of magnitude smaller than the electric one, in qualitative agreement with theoretical expectations.},

abstract = {In order to understand how screening is modified by electronic interferences in a mesoscopic isolated system, we have computed both analytically and numerically the average thermodynamic and time-dependent polarizabilities of two-dimensional mesoscopic samples in the presence of an Aharonov-Bohm flux. Two geometries have been considered: rings and squares. Mesoscopic correction to screening are taken into account in a self consistent way, using the response function formalism. The role of the statistical ensemble (canonical and grand canonical), disorder and frequency have been investigated. We have also computed first order corrections to the polarizability due to electron-electron interactions. Our main results concern the diffusive regime. In the canonical ensemble, there is no flux dependence in the polarizability when the frequency is much smaller than the level spacing. On the other hand, in the grand canonical ensemble for frequencies larger than the mean broadening of the energy levels (but still small compared to the level spacing), the polarizability oscillates with flux, with the periodicity h/2e. The order of magnitude of the effect is given by Î´Î±/Î±âˆ(Î»_{s}/Wg), where Î» is the Thomas-Fermi screening length, W the width of the rings or the size of the squares, and g their average dimensionless conductance. This magnetopolarizability of Aharonov-Bohm rings has been recently measured experimentally [R. Deblock, Y. Noat, H. Bouchiat, B. Reulet and D. Mailly, Phys. Rev. Lett. 84, 3579 (2000)] and is in good agreement with our grand canonical result.},

Another finding is the very low level of 1/f noise, which is significantly lower than previous observations. We propose two possible interpretations for the strong shot noise reduction: i) Transport within a rope takes place through few nearly ballistic tubes within a rope and possibly involves non integer effective charges with e* âˆ¼ 0.3e. ii) A substantial fraction of the tubes conduct with a strong reduction of effective charge (by more than a factor 50).},

abstract = {Measurements on ropes of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNT) were presented. Results show that ropes of carbon nanotubes are intrinsically superconducting. This is the first observation of superconductivity in a system with such a small number of conduction channels. The understanding of this superconductivity calls for future experimental and theoretical work and motivates in particular a search of superconducting fluctuations in a single SWNT.},

Abstract = {The ultimate goal of the classicality program is to quantify the
amount of quantumness of certain processes. Here, classicality is
studied for a restricted type of process: quantum information processing (QIP).
Under special conditions, one can force some qubits of a
quantum computer into a classical state without affecting
the outcome of the computation. The minimal set of conditions is described and
its structure is studied. Some implications of this formalism are the
increase of noise robustness, a proof of the quantumness of mixed
state quantum computing and a step forward in understanding the very
foundation of QIP.},

Abstract = {We describe transport measurements on a small lateral dot involving spin polarized injection and detection. The novel layout of the lateral dot allows its electron occupation number to be reduced to 0 from 60 while maintaining operating tunneling barriers. The spin polarized injection occurs above (0.4 T) due to the presence of spin resolved edge states in the two dimensional electron gas which form the leads to the quantum dot. We demonstrate the consequences of spin polarized leads by focusing on two spin properties of the quantum dot close to filling factor, ν, 2. Firstly, we illustrate an alternating odd/even occupation number effect due to spin blockade through current readout at ν=2. Secondly, we detect spin transitions directly at fixed electron number in the quantum dot as the magnetic field is lowered away from ν=2. The experimental results are explained by a comparison to theoretical calculations of the ground states in the different regimes. The current readout process is one of the requirements of a quantum dot based spin qubit quantum computer. {\copyright} 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.},

Abstract = {Transport measurements are presented on a class of electrostatically defined lateral dots within a high mobility two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG). The design allows Coulomb blockade (CB) measurements to :' be performed on a single lateral dot containing 0, 1 to over 50 electrons. The CB measurements are enhanced by the spin polarized injection from and into 2DEG magnetic edge states. This combines the measurement of charge with the measurement of spin through spin-blockade spectroscopy. The results of Coulomb and spin-blockade spectroscopy for the first 45 electrons enable us to construct the addition spectrum of a lateral device. We also demonstrate that a lateral dot containing a single electron is an effective local probe of a 2DEG edge. {\copyright}2000 The American Physical Society.},

The quantum well is sufficiently narrow that the lattice constant difference between the alloy and the pure Si is all taken up by strain which means the heavy hole band is well separated by the other bands.

At low temperatures (below 100 mK) both the nondissipative and the dissipative parts of the polarizability exhibit flux oscillations with a period of one-half a flux quantum in a ring. The sign and amplitude of the effect are in good agreement with recent theoretical predictions. The observed positive magnetopolarizability corresponds to an enhancement of screening when time reversal symmetry is broken. The effect of electronic density and temperature are also measured.},

abstract = {At low temperature, electronic wave functions in a metal keep their phase coherence on a length L_{Ï†} which can be of the order of few microns. Transport and thermodynamic properties of mesoscopic systems whose size are smaller than L_{Ï†} exhibit spectacular signatures of this coherence which can be revealed by instance through the sensitivity of the phase of the electrons to an applied vector potential. These quantum effects crucially depend on the way measurements are performed, in this paper we emphasize the difference between: â€¢ connected open systems, characterized by their transmission properties accessible through conductance measurements; â€¢ electrically isolated, closed systems caracterized by their energy level spectra and investigated through thermodynamic (mostly magnetization) and ac conductance (response to an electromagnetic wave) measurements. They correspond to different types of coupling to the measuring apparatus, and present different sensitivities to phase coherence. The amplitude of quantum oscillations of the magnetoconductance on a connected system are indeed only a small fraction of the classical conductance and can be much larger on an isolated system. 2000 Académie des sciences/Éditions scientifiques et médicales Elsevier SAS.},

We monitor the spin evolution by measurements of coulomb blockade (CB) peaks on lateral quantum dot devices containing from 5 to 20 electrons. Measurements are made as a function of the magnetic field, temperature, and source-drain bias. The temperature and high source-drain bias dependence of the CB peaks in the vicinity of the spin-flip are consistent with spin depolarization events due to electronic correlations.},

Abstract = {Nous présentons dans ce rapport une introduction complète à deux algorithmes couramment utilisés en physique du solide dans le cadre du problème à N-corps quantique. Le premier est l'algorithme de Blankenbecler, Scalapino et Sugar (bss) (aussi appelé algorithme du déterminant), développé au début des années 80 dans le but de calculer numériquement les propriétés thermodynamiques de certains modèles d'électrons fortement corrélés, dont celui de Hubbard, étudié ici comme modèle pour la supraconductivité à haut Tc. Pour cette partie du rapport, notre étude présente d'abord le fonctionnement de l'algorithme pour s'attarder ensuite à certains de ses aspects numériques, en particulier ceux qui sont problématiques au niveau de la stabilité des calculs. Parmi ceux-ci, nous retrouvons les instabilités liées aux calculs à basse température, le choix de la décomposition de Trotter, le calcul des fonctions de Green et des observables à temps inégal, de même que le problème d'ergodicité. En deuxième partie, nous abordons le calcul des propriétés dynamiques du modèle de Hubbard, comme le poids spectral obtenu en prolongeant analytiquement les données Monte Carlo calculées en temps imaginaire. Pour cette section du rapport, nous présentons quelques éléments de la théorie de la régularisation et la méthode d'entropie maximum utilisés pour résoudre le problème numériquement mal posé que constitue le prolongement analytique des données Monte Carlo. Finalement, pour rendre ce rapport complet en soi, nous avons inclut en annexe une introduction à quelques outils d'analyse numérique ainsi qu'un guide de lecture renvoyant à des références de base sur la plupart des sujets traités dans ce rapport.},

This pseudogap, appearing in our Monte Carlo simulations, may be obtained from many-body techniques that use Green functions and vertex corrections that are at the same level of approximation. Self-consistent theories of the Eliashberg type (such as the Fluctuation Exchange Approximation) use renormalized Green functions and bare vertices in a context where there is no Migdal theorem. They do not find the pseudogap, in quantitative and qualitative disagreement with simulations, suggesting these methods are inadequate for this problem.

We confirm the existence of a new regime for open dots in which the transport through the structure occurs through individual eigenstates of the corresponding closed dot. In particular, at low magnetic fields the characteristic features in the conductance are related to the underlying eigenspectrum shells. When the number of modes in the leads is reduced more detailed structures within the shells due to single eigenlevels becomes discernible. At higher fields Landau level condensation is evident as well as the crossing of levels collapsing to the different Landau levels.},

abstract = {Single wall carbon nanotubes (SWNT) are model systems for the study of electronic transport in one-dimensional conductors. They are expected to exhibit strong electronic correlations and non-Fermi liquid behavior as suggested by recent experiments. The possibility to induce supercurrents through such molecular wires is a challenging question both for experimentalists and theoreticians. In this paper we show experimental evidence of induced superconductivity in a SWNT. This proximity effect is observed in a single 1 nm diameter SWNT, in individual cristalline ropes containing about 100 nanotubes and also on multiwalled tubes. These samples are suspended as strings between two superconducting electrodes (double layer Au-Re, Au-Ta or Sn film) at a distance varying between 100 and 2 000 nm. This allows their structural study in a transmission electron microscope. When their resistance is low enough, SWNT become superconducting with surprisingly high critical currents (in the micro-Ampere range for a single tube of normal state resistance 25 kÎ©). This critical current, extensively studied as function of temperature and magnetic field, exhibits unusual features which are not observed in conventional Superconducting-Normal-Superconducting junctions and can be related to the strong 1D character of these samples. We also show evidence of a huge sensitivity of dc transport properties of the tubes to electromagnetic radiation in the radio-frequency range.},

abstract = {At low temperature, electronic wave functions in a metal keep their phase coherence on a length L_{Ï†} which can be of the order of few microns. Transport and thermodynamic properties of mesoscopic systems whose size are smaller than L_{Ï†} exhibit spectacular signatures of this coherence which can be revealed by instance through the sensitivity of the phase of the electrons to an applied vector potential. These quantum effects crucially depend on the way measurements are performed, in this paper we emphasize the difference between: - Connected open systems, characterized by their transmission properties accessible through conductance measurements. - Isolated closed systems characterized by their energy level spectra and investigated through thermodynamic (mostly magnetization) and ac conductance (response to an electromagnetic wave) measurements. They correspond to different types of coupling to the measuring apparatus, and present different sensitivities to phase coherence. The amplitude of quantum oscillations of the magnetoconductance on a connected system are indeed only a small fraction of the classical conductance and can much larger on an isolated system.},

Abstract = {We study the conductance of a square quantum dot, modeling the potential with a self-consistent Thomas-Fermi approximation. The resulting potential is characterized by level statistics indicative of mixed chaotic and regular electron dynamics within the dot in spite of the regular geometry of the gates defining the dot. We calculate numerically, for the case of a quantum dot with soft confinement, the weak localization (WL) correction. We demonstrate that this confining potential may generate either Lorentzian or linear lineshapes depending on the number of modes in the leads. Finally, we present experimental WL data for a lithographically square dot and compare the results with numerical calculations. We analyze the experimental results and numerical simulations in terms of semiclassical and random matrix theory (RMT) predictions and discuss their limitations as far as real experimental structures are concerned. Our results indicate that direct application of the above predictions to distinguish between chaotic and regular dynamics in a particular cavity can not always lead to reliable conclusions as the shape and magnitude of the WL correction can be strongly sensitive to the geometry-specific, non-universal features of the system.},

When the number of modes in the leads is reduced, a more detailed structure becomes discernible within the shells due to single eigenlevels.

The samples are coupled to a highly sensitive electromagnetic multimode superconducting micro-resonator and lead to a perturbation of the resonance frequency and quality factor. This experiment provides a tool for the investigation of the conductance of mesoscopic sytems without any connection to invasive probes. It can be confronted with recent theoretical predictions emphasizing the differences between isolated and connected geometries and the relation between ac conductance, orbital magnetism and electrical polarisability. The magneto-conductance measured is dominated by its imaginary component whose sign (corresponding to diamagnetism in zero field) and amplitude are analysed and compared to theoretical predictions on persistent currents and magneto-polarisability. The real component of the magneto-conductance is very different from the weak localisation signals observed in similar connected samples. It changes sign from positive to negative when increasing electronic density and frequency. We propose an interpretation of this phenomenon in relation to fundamental properties of energy level spacing statistics in the dots. 1998 Academic Press Limited.},

We present a picture where electrons are injected from an array of spikes which extend below the surface-metal pattern to penetrate the 2DEG and the associated quantum waves determine the contact resistance through phase-coherent interference processes at low temperatures. To probe this mesoscopic current injection process, we induce an evolution between two distinct geometries traditionally used to characterize semiconductor systems - the Corbino disc and the Hall bar.

We provide a semiclassical interpretation of the fluctuations at zero and very low magnetic fields (≲0.05 T) in terms of specific families of periodic orbits, which occur in a classical rectangular billiard. At higher magnetic fields (0.1≲B≲0.25 T) the fluctuations become more aperiodic with reduced amplitudes while the Fourier spectrum contains no significant peaks. With a further increase in the field the cyclotron orbit fits within the dot and now a single frequency dominates the fluctuations, which is consistent with the (semi)classical predictions in this field region. Finally, as the edge-state regime is reached, Aharonov-Bohm oscillations take over.},

Abstract = {We have investigated the geometry-induced magnetoresistance (MR) observed in a high mobility AlGaAs/GaAs electron billiard device. Our billiard is shaped by a surface gate arrangement incorporating a 'bridging interconnect' fabrication technique which allows independent control of the cavity's central circular antidot and evolution from a regular square to a nominally chaotic environment in a single device. The low field MR signature of the device displays a marked fractal form with MR structure on a magnetic field scale much finer than that previously reported for generically similar electron-wave billiards.},

Abstract = {We present the first radiative lifetime measurements and magneto-photoluminescence results of excited states in InGaAs/GaAs semiconductor self-assembled quantum dots. By increasing the photo-excitation intensity, excited state interband transitions up to n = 5 can be observed in the emission spectrum. The dynamics of the interband transitions and the inter-sublevel relaxation in these zero-dimensional energy levels lead to state-filling of the lower-energy states, allowing the quasi-Fermi level to be raised by more than 200 meV due to the combined large inter-sublevel spacing and the low density of states. The decay time of each energy level obtained under various excitation conditions is used to evaluate the inter-sublevel thermalization time. Finally, the emission spectrum of the dots filled with an average of about eight excitons is measured in magnetic fields up to 13 Tesla.

The spectrum shows a number of peaks which split and rearrange with the magnetic field. The behaviour of the spectrum with carrier density and magnetic field is compared with detailed calculations.

For the case where the spikes penetrate the two dimensional gas (2DEG), we show that electrons injected from the spikes into the 2DEG maintain phase coherence at low temperatures, resulting in quantum interference processes determined by the spike distribution. A unique device which induces a topological transition from a Corbino disc to a Hall bar is employed to explore this novel phenomenon. We discuss refinements to the spiking process which will facilitate the incorporation of these metallic spikes into nanostructure designs.},

Abstract = {Magnetotransport coefficients have been measured, at temperatures down to 30 mK, in a single-side p-doped Si0.88Ge0.12 strained quantum well. Odd filling factors dominate the transport, indicating a large g factor, and the coefficients are found to be extremely insensitive to the in-plane component of magnetic field. An effective mass of (0.305$\pm$0.01)m0 was deduced from the temperature dependence. The coefficients are discussed in terms of semiclassical transport theory. At low magnetic fields both longitudinal and Hall coefficients could be well explained in this way, in contrast to the situation in GaAs-based heterostructures. Small deviations from theory at higher fields are attributed to localization and Landau-level mixing effects.},

Abstract = {In this paper we describe a novel effect observed in a quantum wire containing two parallel "artificial" (i.e., electrostatically defined antidots) impurities. At low magnetic fields we observe a series of resistance peaks. These occur at magnetic fields for which classical electron trajectories are commensurate with the device geometry. The resistance peaks are modulated by periodic oscillations that can be observed both as a function of the applied magnetic field or the gate voltage, which controls the size of the impurities. These oscillations are analyzed in terms of the classical action of ballistic electrons on closed trajectories, the related phase gained along these trajectories, and the resulting quantum interference effect. We show that these oscillations when observed as a function of gate voltage are consistent with changes of the electron wavelength along part of the electron trajectory. The device conductance is thus being modulated by the electrostatic control of the electron phase.},

Abstract = {We have measured the magnetoresistance of a variety of structures to search for effects associated with composite fermions (CF) near the Landau filling factor v = 1/2. We find evidence for effects due to randomization of semiclassical ballistic CF trajectories. These produce magnetoresistance features similar to those observed near zero magnetic field. However, we were not able to reproduce the recent CF magnetic focusing experiment despite using devices of very similar quality to those used in the original experiment. We also searched, without success, for phenomena due to phase coherence of CF. The relative ease with which the various magnetoresistance effects are seen in CF is discussed, in part with the aid of semiclassical simulations. It is discovered that inhomogeneities of carrier density cause the magnetoresistance anomalies to be smeared out, largely as a result of spatial variations in the effective magnetic field experienced by the CF. We find also that experiments which are based on randomization of trajectories are more resilient to this spatial variation.},

Abstract = {Weak localization, a semiclassical process established in disordered systems, has recently been used as an experimental probe of the classical dynamics of ballistic cavities. Through a systematic study of the classical and quantum behaviour of three ballistic cavities featuring large width to length aspect ratios, we highlight the important role of the entrance and exit leads. We present a novel ballistic weak localization process in which the contributing classical trajectories pass directly between the entrance and exit leads and are not shaped by the walls of the cavity but purely by the profiles of the leads. This demonstration of a small section of a cavity supporting a 'local' weak localization process has important implications for studies which relate cavity geometry to the dynamics it supports.},

Abstract = {Fractional quantum-Hall-effect features around filling factor ν=1/2 have been analyzed using the composite-fermion approach. Effective masses deduced from the temperature dependence of the Shubnikov-de Haas (SdH) oscillations, in agreement with other measurements, show a divergence as the filling factor approaches ν=1/2 and scale as (density)1/2. The magnetic-field dependence of the amplitude is explained quantitatively in terms of normal impurity scattering and a strong dephasing term associated with density inhomogeneities of order 0.5%. It is pointed out that assumptions made in the derivation of the standard theory used to analyze SdH oscillations are less likely to be satisfied for composite fermions and that some caution should therefore be used in interpreting effective-mass results obtained in this way. {\copyright} 1995 The American Physical Society.},

Six independent gates, on a two-dimensional electron-gas heterostructure, are used to define electrostatically two independently controllable antidots within a quantum wire. Measurements in a magnetic field show trapping of trajectories around either a single or a pair of antidots. Collimation, adiabatic transport, and trapping effects combine to create a rich variety of magnetoconductance features which are modulated by large single-period Aharonov-Bohm oscillations at temperatures below 1 K. Experimental features are compared to results from semiclassical ballistic-trajectory models and the similarities and differences between this system and antidot lattices discussed. {\copyright} 1995 The American Physical Society.},

We have investigated both a contact (Hubbard) and a nearest-neighbor interaction in one dimension and three dimensions (3D). Our results show that a repulsive Hubbard interaction produces a paramagnetic contribution to the average current (whatever the dimension) and increases the value of the typical current. On the other hand, a nearest-neighbor repulsive interaction results in a diamagnetic contribution in 1D and a paramagnetic one in 3D, and tends to decrease the value of the typical current in any dimension. Our study is based on numerical simulations on the Anderson model where the disorder is treated exactly. The numerical results could be justified analytically in the limit of very weak disorder. We have also investigated the influence of the amount of disorder and of the statistical (canonical or grand canonical) ensemble. 1995 The American Physical Society.},

A real split-gate quantum wire has been taken as an example for the calculations, and the results calculated for it agree well with experimental measurements.

Abstract = {The appeal of the lateral surface gate technique lies in the ability to tune the device through application of variable gate bias. We apply positive bias to a 250-nm-wide continuous gate, or stripe, defined above the two-dimensional electron gas of an AlxGa1-xAs/GaAs heterostructure. Following pulsed light emitting diode illumination, inhomogeneities in the region shielded by the stripe can be annealed by tuning the positive bias. We employ this technique to introduce trajectory scrambling events into a ballistic-electron cavity. Through a systematic study of the low-field magnetoresistance of the cavity as a function of positive stripe bias (tuning the inhomogeneities) and temperature (control of electron phase coherence), we examine the interplay between geometry-induced weak localization and classical transport phenomena. In contrast to other recent observations of weak localization in the ballistic regime, our cavity is relatively large (1.8×30 μm2) and the trajectory loops are defined, not by the confining walls of the cavity, but by the profile of the exit port. {\copyright} 1995 The American Physical Society.},

abstract = {We present an extensive study of the current response of isolated mesoscopic rings (noninteracting electrons in the diffusive regime) to a small ac flux superimposed on a dc Aharonov-Bohm flux. This response can be very different from the conductance of the same ring connected to a voltage source. We emphasize the importance of the inelastic rate Î³ compared to the level spacing Î” and the driving frequency Ï‰. We essentially focus on the discrete-spectrum limit Î³Î”. The conductivity has an imaginary component which, at low frequency, is related to the flux derivative of the persistent current through the ring; as previously shown this quantity presents an ensemble average which is zero in the grand canonical case but which is finite in the canonical statistical ensemble. At frequencies larger than Î³ we show evidence of an extra contribution to the imaginary conductivity which is finite and temperature independent in the grand canonical ensemble, and increases with temperature in the canonical case. The real part of the average conductivity exhibits Î¦0/2-periodic flux oscillations which are also very sensitive to the statistical ensemble: for the canonical ensemble, these oscillations can assume either sign compared to the Altshuler, Aharonov, and Spivak oscillations observed in long cylinders and connected arrays of rings. We indeed identify different contributions giving rise to flux oscillations of opposite sign. An off-diagonal contribution related to interlevel transitions which is connected with the flux dependence of the level statistics and gives rise to a negative low-field magnetoconductance, and a diagonal contribution related to the flux dependence of the occupation of the different levels. This past quantity is proportional to the average square of the single-level persistent current and to the inelastic scattering time, and gives rise to a positive low-field magnetoconductance. It can be much larger than the Drude conductance. Our results rely on numerical simulations; most of them are also justified analytically. The American Physical Society.},

Abstract = {A 300-nm-diameter gate is used to introduce an antidot or artificial impurity into a quantum wire defined in an AlxGa1-xAs/GaAs two-dimensional electron gas. At low magnetic fields, geometry-induced quantum interference effects are observed, while at higher fields adiabatic edge-state transport is established. In the transitional regime, conductance resonances due to magnetically bound impurity states exhibit distinct characteristics including beating, sharp period changes, and spin splitting. An asymmetry is observed between the resonances observed as a function of magnetic field and gate voltage. The results are explained by a model based on an interedge-state coupling mechanism. {\copyright} 1994 The American Physical Society.},

Abstract = {The superfluid properties of thin (100-150 nm) of3He were investigated by measuring the rate at which a beaker of liquid3He emptied itself through the adsorbed film, with the film thickness δ decreasing as the level dropped. A beaker rim with a semicircular cross-section was used to provide a well defined geometry and to avoid the effects of small scratches that may have affected earlier experiments. The film thicknesses were determined by Atkins' oscillaton measurements of4He films on the same surface. The superfluid transition temperature in the film Tc F was suppressed below the bulk value Tc B, and was close to being described by 2δ/ξ(Tc F) = π, as expected for A-phase. The critical current density was more than an order of magnitude smaller than expected for pair-breaking. When a4He monolayer was adsorbed on the substrate, there was no suppresson of Tc F. {\copyright} 1994 Plenum Publishing Corporation.},

Abstract = {A semi-classical trajectory model is used to calculate the magneto-resistance of submicron-sized dots with entrance and exit quantum point contact leads. A comparison with experimental data allows the determination of the electron density and the mean free path for the confined regions and shows that these parameters can differ from their equivalent "bulk" values. It is found that for realistic geometries the calculated conductance is extremely sensitive to the angular spread of the collimated beam but depends only weakly on the effective width of the quantum point contacts. {\copyright} 1994.},

Specifically, we evaluate both single-level current and single-level curvature correlations, and use them to examine the typical current, the paramagnetic susceptibility, and the energy power spectrum of Aharonov-Bohm geometries, derived previously.

Abstract = {Electrical-transport measurements were performed on a system consisting of two quantum point contacts (QPCs) in series, where one of the point contacts exhibited low-frequency telegraph noise due to single-impurity effects. We show this system to be ideal for the study of equilibration between the edge states that form at high magnetic fields. We investigate both the adiabatic and nonadiabatic regimes and show that in the transitional magnetic-field range the conductance is compatible with a complete equilibration but between a limited number of edge states only. We also discuss the equivalent experiment at zero field, where one can study the effect of the potential fluctuations on the collimation of the ballistic electrons. In addition, we confirm the observation of 4e2/h quantization in the conductance of a wide QPC. {\copyright} 1992 The American Physical Society.},

Abstract = {Measurements were made of the breakdown of the quantum Hall effect in GaAs/AlxGa1-xAs heterostructures with narrow constrictions (1 m). Structures were observed in both field sweeps and current sweeps. A simple model provides evidence that the origin of these structures is an inhomogeneity size effect which occurs when the length scale of the inhomogeneity becomes comparable with the sample width. The consequences of these inhomogeneities for critical current measurements are discussed. {\copyright} 1989 The American Physical Society.},

Abstract = {Superfluid3He film flow over the rim of a copper beaker has been measured. The flow rate was measured as a function of temperature and as a function of depth of3He below the rim or film thickness at the rim. The critical current, calculated from the flow rate, varied as (1 -T/Tc p)3/2 as expected for pair-breaking;Tc p is a film-thickness-dependent critical temperature. However, the magnitude of the current was an order of magnitude smaller than expected for pair-breaking, in agreement with other experiments that have demonstrated a lower dissipation mechanism in superfluid3He. The suppression of the critical temperature Tc p/Tc b, where Tc b=0.93 mK is the bulk3He transition temperature, varied from 0.93 to 0.7 as the film thickness at the rim varied from 120 to 90 nm. These ratios are larger than expected from Ginzburg-Landau or microscopic theory of superfluid3He-B. {\copyright} 1988 Plenum Publishing Corporation.},

Abstract = {An analysis of the semicircular loop, vibrating-wire3He viscometer has been made. Emphasis was placed upon the magnetic field dependence of the resonance frequency and frequency width (damping) in order to study the suitability of the device for a field-independent thermometer. The analysis was complemented by experiments with Ta, Nb-Ti, Cu, Ag, Au, and Cu-Ni wires. It was found that the various wires, whether superconducting or pure or impure normal metals, have advantages and disadvantages. The superconducting wires show a large field-dependent frequency shift due to induced magnetization and a field-dependent damping due to flux motion. Pure normal metals also show induced magnetization (eddy-current) frequency shift and damping, and impure metals and alloys give Joule heating. Nevertheless, it is shown that the device can be used in the range 1-10 mK and for fields from 20 mT to 1 T. {\copyright} 1988 Plenum Publishing Corporation.},

Abstract = {We have measured the magnetoresistance ρ(H,T0) of the magnetic Kondo lattice CeAl2 at temperatures T0 in the range 0.035 - 1.3 K, well below the N{\'e}el temperature TN=3.8 K, in magnetic fields H up to 145 k0e. The ρ vs H curve exhibits a rapid decrease between H=45-65 kOe corresponding to the metamagnetic transition at H=HM. The resistivity then levels out to a value which depends only weakly on field and temperature. For H<HM a small positive magnetoresistance was observed with the derivative dρ/dH increasing as the temperature is lowered. The present results are compared with the ρ(H,T0) data obtained for the CePb3 magnetic Kondo lattice, where the decrease in the resistivity at H∼HM was considered earlier to be evidence of field induced superconductivity. {\copyright} 1986.},

Abstract = {He3 film flow has been observed. The maximum flow rate, at 0.7 mK, over a rim 0.9 mm above the He3 level, was 1.2 mm3/h corresponding to an approximate flow velocity of 0.2 mm/sec. A flow rate of 0.2 mm3/h 0.1 mm/sec) was measured with the rim 14 mm above the level. The transition to superflow occurred at 3.5 0.5 mK for the 0.9-mm film and 2.0 0.5 mK for the 14-mm film. This flow is in a regime where the film thickness is less than or comparable to the bulk superfluid He3 coherence length 1000 at 0.8 mK) and the temperature is higher than the bulk He3 superfluid transition temperature (1.08 mK) and corresponds, we believe, to a two-dimensional superfluid phase of He3. {\copyright} 1985 The American Physical Society.},

Abstract = {As part of a Kapitza resistance study, the thermal resistance between the phonon and3He quasiparticle excitations in three dilute3He-4He mixtures (0.03%, 0.1%, and 0.3%3He) has been measured over the temperature range 20-50 mK. The results are compared with a theory based upon the Baym-Ebner interaction between the excitations. The temperature dependences agree, but the measured resistance is smaller than the theoretical resistance by a factor of ∼2 that varies inversely with concentration. This concentration-dependent phonon-quasiparticle coupling discrepancy is consistent with the results of recent heat pulse absorption experiments by Husson et al. An indirect measurement was made of the same thermal resistance in3He-4He mixtures confined within the pores of a submicrometer sintered copper powder, with the results confirming a size-effect model for the resistance. {\copyright} 1984 Plenum Publishing Corporation.},
