Abstract: S74.00001 : Quantum computation with hole spin qubits in Si and Ge quantum dots.*

I will present schemes to optimize the strength of these interactions in different architectures and show how to harness them to enhance the coupling of confined spins to microwave photons. In hole spin qubits this large spin-photon coupling can also be tuned to be longitudinal, enabling high fidelity and fast two qubit gates with exact protocols that could work at high temperatures .
On the other hand, spin-orbit interactions also couple the qubit to charge noise, reducing its coherence time. I will discuss ways to engineer and tune the spin-orbit interaction to enable sweet spots where the charge noise can be completely removed . In Si FinFETs, also the noise caused by hyperfine interactions with nuclear spins -another leading source of decoherence in spin qubits- can be suppressed at these sweet spots, greatly enhancing the coherence of these qubits, and reducing the need for expensive isotopically purified materials .
Moreover, the large spin-orbit interactions in hole quantum dots enable phenomena that are out of reach in competing architectures. As an example, in these systems the exchange interactions can become highly anisotropic, even at zero magnetic field, potentially impacting the fidelity of two-qubit gates [4,5] .
