Charge and spin dynamics in a hybrid cQED architecture.
In the context of circuit quantum electrodynamics, recent developments made it possible to build hybrid circuits , including many types of quantum dots. The versatility of these systems allows us to explore several directions, from quantum information engineering to many-body physics, all in a circuit QED architecture. I will present some of the experiments of our group where a carbon nanotube-based double quantum dot is coupled to a microwave cavity. Using a novel carbon nanotube stamping technique , we demonstrate a strong electron confinement, allowing us to bring the system at resonance with the cavity and use it as a charge qubit. We characterise the response of this circuit out of equilibrium, driving the system either with a finite bias or with a microwave spectroscopic tone .
Combined with exchange Zeeman fields induced by ferromagnetic interfaces, such a control should enable us to go towards spin-photon coupling and spin qubit experiments for circuit QED . I will discuss some preliminary results pointing towards spin-photon coupling signatures in such an architecture.
