The ability to control the electron spin via acting on its momentum or the spin-orbit interaction is an important ingredient in future quantum devices. These devices may be used in advanced quantum technology and quantum computers. A direct example is a Josephson junction with a controllable phase. Such a junction is one of the promising realizations of a “quantum bit”, the basic building block of the quantum computer.
In our laboratory, we engineer new metamaterials that combine various degrees of freedom such as spin, lattice and orbital degrees of freedoms. These materials can be superconducting with controllable strong spin-orbit interaction. We design and study quantum wires and as quantum two dimensional electron liquid for these materials. These devices can accommodate Majorana Fermions that are important for error free quantum computation and can be designed as a quantum bit with unique properties.
