Hot Topics: Charles Marcus: 'The resonant exchange qubit'



11.00 AM - 1.00 PM


Room F(!), TNW


Hot Topics in Quantum Nanoscience

Course Content: Speakers from all over the world will be asked to present pedagogical introductions to their field with an emphasis on basic concepts. Besides such an introductory lecture open for everybody, the participants of this course will have an additional discussion with the speaker discussing a recent paper and the holy grails of the field.

Exemplary topics are topological insulators, mesoscopic quantum gravity, string theory for condensed matter, measurement-based quantum computing, quantum-limited sensors, Majorana Fermions, fast-light with single photons, etc., etc.

Audience: The tutorial, as a 1 hour lecture, is open to everybody. A 2nd hour will be reserved as a discussion hour between the registered class of PhD students and postdocs with the lecturer.    

Course teachers: Gary Steele, Leo DiCarlo, Leo Kouwenhoven and Tjerk Oosterkamp

Preparation: PhD students who have registered for the hot topics course need to prepare for the session by reading the document mentioned in the below.


Date & Speaker:

Friday 14 June, Charles Marcus

"The resonant exchange qubit"



This talk discusses recent work on a three-electron spin qubit that realizes full qubit control using the exchange interaction between two pairs of electrons to create both the static longitudinal field and oscillatory transverse field. One qubit operations are demonstrated and plans for two-qubit circuits discussed. Work supported by IARPA and the DNRF.

Host: Leo Kouwenhoven

Location: Room F(!), TNW

Time: 11:00 - 12:00 lecture
         12:00 - 13:00 lunch/hot topics session
