About Jason Petta's Work
My research group focuses on the transport properties of nanoscale quantum materials. Semiconductor quantum dots are used to isolate single electron spins, which exhibit long quantum coherence times. These systems allow quantum mechanics to be harnessed in a solid state environment for the implementation of elementary quantum gates. Our team uses nanofabrication to create artificially structured systems with experimentally tunable Hamiltonians that can be controlled on sub-nanosecond timescales. We also examine strong light-matter interactions in the circuit quantum electrodynamics architecture, with a goal of generating long-range many body entanglement.
