Quantum computing with quantum dots on quantum linear supports

Journal Article (Journal Article)

A scheme for quantum computation was proposed using chemically assembled semiconductor nanocrystals attached to a linear support. The linear support was either a nanoscale rod or a molecular string and its phonon modes were used as a quantum-information bus between the dots. Silicon (Si) was found to be a potentially promising quantum-dot material which allowed to operate a 5-10-qubit quantum computer with an error threshold of 10-3.
