Building single electron devices as a basis for future scalable quantum information processors


my research deals with trying to realize
single electron devices as a basis for future scalable quantum information
processors this is really a semiconductor based approach sort of
like your silicon computer chips but shrunk down to the scale where we’re
manipulating individual electrons rather than many electrons at once and this
sort of builds on some of the pioneering work that David Cory and Ray Laflamme
and others did in magnetic resonance You know 15 years ago Ray was saying that a quantum computer was a matter of when and not if but I think a lot of you know
distinguished people in the field weren’t so sure even at that time but
now I think really you know everybody is convinced that that’s the case and you
can see that there are large investments by major companies like Google Microsoft
and IBM so yeah the context that we’re working
in now is is really an accelerated pace of research in this field and so it’s
exciting but it’s also a bit daunting because things are just moving so fast
