Quantum-Dot Spin Qubit and Hyperfine Interaction

  • Chapter

Part of the Advances in Solid State Physics book series (ASSP,volume 46)

Abstract

We review our investigation of the spin dynamics for two electrons confined to a double quantum dot under the influence of the hyperfine interaction between the electron spins and the surrounding nuclei. Further we propose a scheme to narrow the distribution of difference in polarization between the two dots in order to suppress hyperfine induced decoherence.
