Title of Poster
cQED with grAl resonators and hole spins in germanium
Abstract Regular

Hole spins enable fast and all-electric control [1], due to strong intrinsic spin-orbit interaction (SOI). Since the SOI also couples spins to the electric field of a photon in a microwave resonator, strong hole-spin-photon coupling is expected. Recent experiment with holes in silicon indeed confirms this prediction [2], with the coupling largely exceeding the best figures reported with electrons [3, 4].

Here we report on hole double quantum dots (DQD) hosted in Ge/SiGe heterostructure coupled to a granular aluminum (grAl) resonator. grAl offers high kinetic inductance, magnetic field resilience and compatibility with multilayer lift-off based fabrication [5]. Assessing these properties, we demonstrate a resonator with a characteristic impedance of ~ 13 k$\Omega$ (due to the large kinetic inductance of ~ 2 nH/sq) resilient to out of plane magnetic fields exceeding B ~ 300 mT with $\kappa$/2$\pi$ < 5 MHz, well suited for spin-photon coupling experiments. We will also present our recent results of integrating these resonators with germanium DQDs in a cQED architecture, which aims for long-range coupling of hole spin qubits.
