Ray-based framework for state identification in quantum dot devices

June 17, 2021
Justyna Zwolak, Thomas McJunkin, Sandesh Kalantre, Samuel Neyens, Evan MacQuarrie, Mark A. Eriksson, Jacob Taylor
Quantum dots (QDs) defined with electrostatic gates are one of the leading candidates for scaling up the number of qubits in quantum computing implementations. However, with increasing qubit number, the complexity of the control parameter space also grows

Auto-tuning of double dot devices it in situ with machine learning

March 31, 2020
Justyna P. Zwolak, Thomas McJunkin, Sandesh Kalantre, J. P. Dodson, E. R. MacQuarrie, D. E. Savage, M. G. Lagally, S N. Coppersmith, Mark A. Eriksson, Jacob M. Taylor
The current practice of manually tuning quantum dots (QDs) for qubit operation is a relatively time- consuming procedure that is inherently impractical for scaling up and applications. In this work, we report on the {\it in situ} implementation of a

Machine Learning techniques for state recognition and auto-tuning in quantum dots

January 21, 2019
Sandesh Kalantre, Justyna Zwolak, Stephen Ragole, Xingyao Wu, Neil M. Zimmerman, Michael Stewart, Jacob Taylor
Recent progress in building large-scale quantum devices for exploring quantum computing and simulation paradigms has relied upon effective tools for achieving and maintaining good experimental parameters, i.e. tuning up devices. In many cases, including in

Bose Condensation of Photons Thermalized via Laser Cooling of Atoms

August 31, 2018
Chiao Wang, Michael Gullans, James V. Porto, William D. Phillips, Jacob Taylor
A Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) is a quantum phase of matter achieved at low temperatures.Photons, one of the most prominent species of bosons, do not typically condense due to the lackof a particle number-conservation. We recently described a photon

Photon thermalization via laser cooling of atoms

July 19, 2018
Chiao-Hsuan Wang, Michael Gullans, James V. Porto, William D. Phillips, Jacob Taylor
The cooling of atomic motion by scattered light enables a wide variety of technological and scientific explorations. Here we focus on laser cooling from the perspective of the light — specifi- cally, the scattering of light between different optical modes

Efimov States of Strongly Interacting Photons

December 4, 2017
Jacob M. Taylor, Alexey V. Gorshkov, Michael Gullans, D Ruzik, Seth Rittenhouse, J.P. D'Incao, Paul Julienne, S Diehl
We introduce a new system to study Efimov physics based on interacting photons in cold gases of Rydberg atoms. This system has a large anisotropy between the longitudinal mass of the photons, arising from dispersion, and the transverse mass of the photons

Valley blockade in a silicon double quantum dot

November 13, 2017
Justin K. Perron, Michael Gullans, Jacob Taylor, Michael Stewart, Neil M. Zimmerman
Electrical transport in double quantum dots (DQD) is useful for illuminating many interesting aspects of the carrier states in quantum dots. Here we show data comparing bias triangles (i.e., regions of allowed current in DQDs) at positive and negative bias

Threshold Dynamics of a Semiconductor Single Atom Maser

August 31, 2017
Michael Gullans, Jacob M. Taylor, Yinyiu Liu, J. Stehlik, Christopher Eichler, X Mi, T Hartke, Jason Petta
We demonstrate a single-atom maser consisting of a semiconductor double quantum dot (DQD) that is embedded in a high quality factor microwave cavity. A finite bias drives the DQD out of equilibrium resulting in sequential single electron tunneling and

Narrowband Optomechanical Refrigeration of a Chiral Bath

August 7, 2017
Jacob M. Taylor, Kim Seunghwi, Xu Xunnong, Gaurav Bahl
The transport of sound and heat, in the form of phonons, is fundamentally limited by disorder-induced scattering. In electronic and optical settings, introduction of chiral transport - in which carriers have unidirectional propagation - provides robustness

Optical Radiation from Integer Quantum Hall States in Dirac Materials

June 30, 2017
Michael Gullans, Jacob M. Taylor, Mohammad Hafezi
Quantum Hall systems exhibit topologically protected edge states, which can have a macroscopic spatial extent. Such edge states provide a unique opportunity to study a quantum emitter whose size far exceeds the wavelength of emitted light. To better

Optomechanical Quantum Correlations at Room Temperature

June 23, 2017
Thomas P. Purdy, Karen E. Grutter, Kartik A. Srinivasan, Jacob M. Taylor
By shining laser light through a nanomechanical beam, we measure the beam’s thermally driven vibrations and perturb its motion with optical forces at a level dictated by the Heisenberg measurement-disturbance uncertainty relation. Such quantum effects are

Optomechanical Quantum Correlations

May 18, 2017
Thomas P. Purdy, Karen E. Grutter, Kartik A. Srinivasan, Nikolai N. Klimov, Zeeshan Ahmed, Jacob M. Taylor
We present methods to measure optical quantum correlations arising from an optomechanical interaction even when large classical noise sources are present. We demonstrate quantum- backaction-noise-calibrated Brownian motion thermometry as a metrological

March 1, 2017
Jacob M. Taylor, John R. Lawall, Haitan Xu, Utku Kemiktarak, Jingyun Fan, Stephen Ragole
Correlated phases of matter provide long-term stability for systems as diverse as solids, magnets, and potential exotic quantum materials. Mechanical systems, such as relays and buckling transition spring switches can yield similar stability by exploiting

November 16, 2016
Jacob M. Taylor, Vanita Srinivasa, Charles Tahan
We investigate a hybrid quantum system consisting of spatially separated resonant exchange qubits, defined in three-electron semiconductor triple quantum dots, that are coupled via a super- conducting transmission line resonator. By analyzing three

Double Quantum Dot Floquet Gain Medium

November 7, 2016
Jacob M. Taylor, Michael Gullans, Jason Petta, J. Stehlik, Yinyiu Liu, Christopher Eichler, T Hartke, X Mi
A qubit coupled to a microwave resonator allows the study of fundamental light-matter interactions at the level of single photons1. The paradigm of circuit quantum electrodynam- ics (cQED) enables the generation of classical and non-classical light2–5

Non-equilibrium Transport of Light

October 16, 2016
Jacob M. Taylor, Chiao-Hsuan Wang
Understanding the behavior of light in non-equilibrium scenarios underpins much of quantum optics and optical physics. While lasers provide a severe example of a non-equilibrium problem, recent interests in the near-equilibrium physics of photon `gases'

September 22, 2016
Jacob M. Taylor, Hans Briegel, Vedran Dunjko
In this paper we provide a broad framework for describing learning agents in general quantum environments. We analyze the types of environments which allow for quantum enhancements in learning, by contrasting environments to quantum oracles. We show that

Sisyphus Thermalization of Photons in a Double Quantum Dot

July 29, 2016
Michael Gullans, J. Stehlik, Y.-Y. Liu, Christopher Eichler, Jason Petta, Jacob M. Taylor
A strongly driven quantum system coupled to a thermalizing bath generically evolves into a highly non-thermal state as the external drive competes with the equilibrating force of the bath. We demonstrate a notable exception to this picture for a microwave

Thomas P. Purdy, Karen E. Grutter, Kartik A. Srinivasan, Nikolai N. Klimov, Zeeshan Ahmed, Jacob M. Taylor
Thermally-driven motion of a nanomechanical resonator may be employed as an absolute thermometer. We experimentally measure radiation pressure shot noise induced quantum correlations to absolutely calibrate the motional signal transduced onto an optical
