Paper Abstract

Single-spin detection will be crucial for solid-state quantum computer architectures in which information is encoded in the spin-state of single nuclear or electron spins. The formidable problem of single-spin detection in a solid can be mapped to a more tractable problem of single-charge detection through spin-dependent electron transfer which may be observed using ultra-sensitive solid-state nanostructure electrometers. Here we describe a readout architecture using single electron transistors (SETs) that can detect the charge-state of two coupled metal dots, which simulates charge transfer in a two-quantum bit (qubit) spin system. This twin-SET architecture allows significant reduction of random charge noise by correlating two detector outputs, reducing the probability of readout errors in the quantum computer.
