Title: Hole spin qubits for quantum computing in Si and Ge quantum dots


Hole spin qubits are frontrunner platforms for scalable quantum computers in Si and Ge semiconductors because of their large spin-orbit interaction which enables ultrafast all-electric qubit control at low power. The fastest spin qubits to date are defined in long quantum dots with two tight confinement directions, when the driving field is aligned to the smooth direction [1]. However, in these systems the lifetime of the qubit is strongly limited by charge noise, a major issue in hole qubits. I will give an overview of recent theoretical and experimental results [1-5] that have led to a series of testable predictions such as sweet spots for devices in Si and Ge semiconductors currently implemented in the Swiss National Center on Spin Qubits led by the University of Basel and IBM Zurich.
