Single 31P Donors in Silicon as a Platform for Quantum Computers
Quantum computation holds in it great promise. It is expected to provide a considerable advantage over classical computers in several important computational tasks, but it is a great challenge to build one. Primarily, it is difficult to find a good physical system to build on: one that can answer all the stringent requirements such a machine has. While some physical systems have already been recognized as suitable candidates for quantum computers, and some first generation quantum computers have been manufactured, the search for better platforms for those machines is still underway. One possible candidate system for quantum computers that may prove superior to others are single electron transistors in silicon, with single phosphorus donors tunnel coupled to them. In this literature seminar I will give a short review of recent efforts to produce and perfect such devices, towards implementation as the building blocks of a quantum computer.
