Quantum computation with ballistic electron waveguides
MetadataShow full item record
We present a study of ballistic electron waveguides as used to construct simple quantum computational networks. We begin with an introduction to ballistic electron waveguides, some basic theory of quantum computers, and the possible role of electron waveguides in quantum computation. Following that, our study of various waveguide networks and the physics of the specific components of those networks. We continue with a discussion of shot noise in network elements and its possible role in helping to build good computational gates. Finally we conclude with a summary of research and possible future projects.
