Spin-Weyl quantum unit: theoretical proposal

13 Aug 2020  ·  Chen Yuguang, Nazarov Yuli V. ·

We propose a four-state quantum system, or quantum unit, that can be realized in superconducting hetero-structures. The unit combines the states of a spin and an Andreev qubit providing the opportunity of quantum superpositions of their states... This functionality is achieved by tunnel coupling between a 4-terminal superconducting heterostucture housing a Weyl point, and a quantum dot. The quantum states in the vicinity of the Weyl point are extremely sensitive to small changes of superconducting phase, this gives reach opportunities for quantum manipulation. We establish an effective Hamiltonian for the setup and describe the peculiarities of the resulting spectrum. We concentrate on the 4-state subspace and explain how to make a double qubit in this setup. We review various ways to achieve quantum manipulation in the unit, this includes resonant, adiabatic, diabatic manipulation and combinations of those. We provide detailed illustrations of designing arbitrary quantum gates in the unit. read more
