of the Melbourne Node of the CQCT is Prof. David Jamieson
Objectives and Goals
The goal of the Melbourne
node of the Centre of Excellence - Centre for Quantum Computer Technology
(CQCT) is to develop technologies for the placement and detection
of Phosphorus atoms in Silicon as part of the realization of a prototype
Kane quantum computer, and theoretical modelling of gate operations.
The key strategies for
achieving this goal are:
- The use of direct
ion implantation for the placement of P atoms.
- Registration of the
P atoms using resists or electrical transients.
- Detection of single
P atoms using scanning probe microscopies.
- Design methods of
monitoring ultra-low levels of damage in Si and optimization of
procedures for the removal of damage.
- Modeling of the implantation
process and device performance.
