A fast singlet-triplet qubit in planar Ge driven by a tunable g-factor difference
Abstract Regular

Exceptional properties such as long coherence times [1], fault tolerant single [2] and two-qubit fidelities [3,4,5,6], fast and high fidelity state read-out [7, 8, 9], together with CMOS integration capabilities [10] set spin-qubits amongst the top players in the race towards the quantum computer.

Currently, those exceptional characteristics are scattered among different spin-qubit platforms. This is where Ge kicks in. Firstly, a large spin-orbit coupling allows fast and fully electrical spin state manipulation [11, 12, 13]. Secondly, holes couple only weakly to nuclear spins. Finally, the small effective mass and the low disorder in this material reduces the fabrication complexity [14]. Recent experiments have demonstrated high-quality qubits operating in depletion mode [15], two-qubit gates [16] and a four-qubit quantum processor [17].

Here, we show our results on a singlet-triplet qubit in planar Ge. Exploiting the large and tunable out-of- plane g-factors allow X-rotation frequency of up to 600 MHz, and a quality factor exceeding 200 at a magnetic field of only 10 mT.

The reported results not only compete with state of the art spin qubits but pave also the way for on-chip co- integration with superconducting technology. Furthermore, the electrical tunability of g-factors might offer an in-situ solution for the standing problem of non-uniform spin-qubit transition frequencies, qubit addressability and crosstalk protection in dense spin-qubit arrays.
