Abstract : This technical report demonstrates nanofabrication technology for Niobium heterostructures and nanoscale quantum devices suitable for implementation in novel qubit/quantum memory. In particular electron beam lithography and atomic layer deposition are used. These processes integrate layouts suitable for high frequency microwave/RF excitation of the qubits/quantum memory as well as optically transparent gates in the area of the tunnel junction to enable combined spectroscopy and transport measurements while tuning the energy band at the tunnel junction. These devices are suitable for characterization in a cryo-magneto-optical probe station to access the superconducting regime of operation and that could be used for control and sending of qubit/quantum memory states to remote locations.
