This grant has provided funding for an additional graduate student, Stephen J. Robinson, to work on AROARDA project DAAD-19-00-1-0407, Controlled Coupling of Donor Atom Wavefunctions in Silicon, at the University of Illinois under the supervision of Co-PI John Tucker. Stephens research involves fabrication of the ion-implanted contact arrays used for atom-scale STM P donor device fabrication, and low temperature measurements to characterize their properties. His efforts have been closely coordinated with T.-C. Shen, PI, and my fifth-year graduate student Jeffrey Kline working at Utah State University. Dr. Kline has recently graduated with a Ph.D. and is currently a NIST Fellow at Boulder, working to fabricate epitaxial superconductor tunnel junctions for QC experiments in that area. A portion of his salary as a graduate student was also supported by this grant. Stephen Robinson has recently moved to Utah State and will complete his Ph.D. in the coming year. He and Prof. Shen are currently working to demonstrate epitaxial single-electron transistors for use in QC spin-state detection. Both Stephen and Jeff have made very substantial contributions to demonstrating P-donor nanowires as the first step toward an integrated Si QC architecture.
