Nanomechanical read-out and manipulation of a single spin — •Heng Wang and Guido Burkard — University of Konstanz, Department of Physics
The single electron spin in quantum dot is a promising candidate as a qubit for quantum computation and quantum information. We investigate detection as well as manipulation of the single spin in a suspended carbon nanotube quantum dot. The detection and the manipulation are based on the spin-mechanical coupling induced from the intrinsic spin-orbit coupling. We use a Jaynes-Cummings model with a quantized flexural mode of the resonator to describe the system. An external electric field is used to drive the resonator and to induce an the interaction between the single electron in the quantum dot and the external driving field. The spin states can be identified by measuring the mechanical motion of the nanotube, which is detected by observing the current through a nearby charge sensor. Arbitrary-angle rotations about arbitrary axes of the single electron spin can be achieved by varying the frequency and the strength of the external electric driving field.
