Measurement of tunnel coupling in a Si double quantum dot based on charge sensing

11 Mar 2021  ·  Xinyu Zhao, Xuedong Hu ·

In Si quantum dots, valley degree of freedom, in particular the generally small valley splitting and the dot-dependent valley-orbit phase, adds complexities to the low-energy electron dynamics and the associated spin qubit manipulation. Here we propose a four-level model to extract tunnel coupling information for a Si double quantum dot (DQD). This scheme is based on a charge sensing measurement on the ground state as proposed in the widely used protocol for a GaAs double dot [DiCarlo et. al., PRL 92. 226801]. Our theory can help determine both intra- and inter-valley tunnel coupling with high accuracy, and is robust against system parameters such as valley splittings in the individual quantum dots.
