Optical remote control of a charge qubit.

Ted S. Santana, Francisco A. G. Almeida

Both the electron transport-based qubits, implemented through double quantum dots, and the sources of indistinguishable single-photons like self-assembled quantum dots are strong candidates for the implementation of quantum technologies, such as quantum computers and quantum repeaters. Here, we demonstrate a reliable way of coupling these two types of qubits, uncovering the possibility of controlling and reading out the population of the double quantum dot via optical excitation. It is also showed that, in spite of the decoherence mechanisms affecting the qubits, the entanglement between them is achievable and, consequently, the implementation of the suggested system in quantum technologies is feasible.
