# A single-hole spin qubit

@article{Hendrickx2020ASS, title={A single-hole spin qubit}, author={Nico W Hendrickx and W. I. L. Lawrie and L. Petit and Amir Sammak and Giordano Scappucci and Menno Veldhorst}, journal={Nature Communications}, year={2020}, volume={11} }

Qubits based on quantum dots have excellent prospects for scalable quantum technology due to their compatibility with standard semiconductor manufacturing. While early research focused on the simpler electron system, recent demonstrations using multi-hole quantum dots illustrated the favourable properties holes can offer for fast and scalable quantum control. Here, we establish a single-hole spin qubit in germanium and demonstrate the integration of single-shot readout and quantum control. We… Expand
