Investigation of the scalability of rare-earth-ion quantum hardware

Bartholomew, John Glen


In the last decade, the solid-state rare-earth-ion system has demonstrated increasing appeal for quantum computation. Despite this progress, two hardware limitations prevent a scalable implementation. These current limitations are the inability to miniaturise and the inability to perform single-ion qubit readout. This thesis addresses both these limitations and demonstrates that neither poses a fundamental restriction on increasing the scale of rare-earth-ion quantum computers. The challenge in...[Show more]
