Electron spin qubits in quantum dots: a micro-magnet approach - Michel Pioro-Ladrière

Electron spins isolated in quantum dots are promising candidates for the physical implementation of quantum information processing in the solid-state. After introducing how quantum information can be stored and manipulated with electron spins in modern quantum dots, I will review the recent experimental successes and the difficulties that have been encountered. Building on these results, I will demonstrate how the integration of micron-size ferromagnets can help in solving the problem of addressability and at the same time in enabling scalable, all-electrical, one-qubit gates.
