QES Seminar 3/14/2011 - Quantum Dots and Quantum Information -- Neil Zimmerman (NIST)

Semiconductor quantum dots have a number of applications, and quantum coherent manipulation of the charge or spin of electrons is one really cool one.  This talk will start with an introduction into quantum dots and the physics of both the Coulomb blockade and of quantum information, give a smattering of literature results on quantum coherent manipulation of electrons in Si and GaAs dots, and then finish with some of our recent data on electrostatically-gated Si devices including honeycomb stability diagrams.
