Qubits made by advanced semiconductor manufacturing


Abstract: "Full-scale quantum computers require the integration of millions of qubits, and the potential of using industrial semiconductor manufacturing to meet this need has driven the development of quantum computing in silicon quantum dots. However, fabrication has so far relied on electron-beam lithography and, with a few exceptions, conventional lift-off processes that suffer from low yie... » read more

Metasurface Colloidal Quantum Dot Photodetectors


Abstract: "Efficient photodetectors that can be easily engineered for a specific spectral window are of high interest. Here, we report on the design, fabrication, and characterization of metasurface-enhanced photodetectors and photodiodes using colloidal quantum dots. We fabricate photoconductors optimized for the wavelength range around 1550 nm featuring responsivities of up to 8000 A/W wit... » read more

Light-Emitting V-Pits: An Alternative Approach toward Luminescent Indium-Rich InGaN Quantum Dots


Abstract: "Realization of fully solid-state white light emitting devices requires high efficiency blue, green, and red emitters. However, challenges remain in boosting the low quantum efficiency of long wavelength group-III-nitride light emitters through conventional quantum well growth. Here, we demonstrate a new direct metal–organic chemical vapor deposition approach to grow In-rich InGa... » read more

The Race To Make Better Qubits


One of the big challenges in quantum computing is getting qubits to last long enough to do something useful with them. After decades of research, there now appears to be tangible progress. The challenge with any new semiconductor technology is to improve performance by one or more orders of magnitude without discarding a half-century of progress in other areas. Qubits based on silicon quantu... » read more

Buried nanomagnet realizing high-speed/low-variability silicon spin qubits: implementable in error-correctable large-scale quantum computers


Abstract: "We propose a buried nanomagnet (BNM) realizing highspeed/low-variability silicon spin qubit operation, inspired by buried wiring technology, for the first time. High-speed quantum-gate operation results from large slanting magnetic-field generated by the BNM disposed quite close to a spin qubit, and low-variation of fidelity thanks to the self-aligned fabrication process. Employing ... » read more

Uniform Spin Qubit Devices with Tunable Coupling in an All-Silicon 300 mm Integrated Process


Abstract: Larger arrays of electron spin qubits require radical improvements in fabrication and device uniformity. Here we demonstrate excellent qubit device uniformity and tunability from 300K down to mK temperatures. This is achieved, for the first time, by integrating an overlapping polycrystalline silicon-based gate stack in an ‘all-Silicon’ and lithographically flexible 300mm flow. ... » read more

Will Co-Packaged Optics Replace Pluggables?


As optical connections work their way deeper into the data center, a debate is underway. Is it better to use pluggable optical modules or to embed lasers deep into advanced packages? There are issues of convenience, power, and reliability driving the discussion, and an eventual winner isn’t clear yet. “The industry is definitely embracing co-packaged optics,” said James Pond, principal... » read more

Flat-Panel Display Demand Soars


What a difference a year makes in the flat-panel display market. Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak in early 2020, the flat-panel display (FPD) market was gloomy. Oversupply, falling prices and losses were the common themes in the market. It’s been a different story during the outbreak. In 2020, the FPD market rebounded. In the stay-at-home economy, consumers went on a buying spree... » read more

Power/Performance Bits: April 20


Multiplexing twisted light Researchers from University of California San Diego and University of California Berkeley found a way to multiplex light by using discrete twisting laser beams from antennas made up of concentric rings. "It's the first time that lasers producing twisted light have been directly multiplexed," said Boubacar Kanté, an Associate Professor at UC Berkeley's Department ... » read more

Solution-processable integrated CMOS circuits based on colloidal CuInSe2 quantum dots


Researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory and University of California Irvine used quantum dots to create transistors which can be assembled into functional logic circuits. “Potential applications of the new approach to electronic devices based on non-toxic quantum dots include printable circuits, flexible displays, lab-on-a-chip diagnostics, wearable devices, medical testing, smart im... » read more
