This book highlights state-of-the-art qubit implementations in semiconductors and provides an extensive overview of this newly emerging field. Semiconductor nanostructures have huge potential as future quantum information devices as they provide various ways of qubit implementation (electron spin, electronic excitation) as well as a way to transfer

Table of Contents

Spin and Charge Qubits; Qubit Control, Readout, and Transfer; Qubit Decoherence; Flying Qubits; Qubit Applications.
