Connecting quantum information processors over long distances using photons as qubits would enable more complex quantum computing architectures and quantum networks. Spin qubits in GaAs/AlGaAs gate-defined quantum dots (GDQDs) have been demonstrated to be promising scalable qubits. Since GaAs is a direct band gap material, a coherent transfer of information between a spin qubit and a photon qubit is in principle possible but cannot be achieved directly using GDQDs. Here we investigate a possibility of using InAs self-assembled quantum dots (SAQDs) to facilitate a coherent transfer of an energy encoded photon qubit into a spin qubit. We discuss the protocol of the spin qubit transfer between the two quantum dots of the device and show the results of fabrication and characterization of a hybrid device with a gate-defined double quantum dot (GDDD) tunnel coupled to a SAQD. We show an optical method that enables alignment of the two component quantum dots with an accuracy of 20 nm and analyze the proximity effect of the two components of the device on each other.
