Semiconductor nanodevices: From basic physics to quantum information

It is impossible to picture modern life without thinking of the vast amount of microelectronic applications that surround us. However, such development has only been made possible with the invention of the transistor in 1947. This, back at that time few centimeters large device, led to a technological revolution. Today the size of the transistors is less than 14 nm. At such length scales quantum physics comes into play and while this poses a limitation for the classical semiconductor computer, for fundamental physics it represents an amazing challenge. Can semiconductor devices still play a role in the future of computing while moving into the quantum era? In this talk I will discuss the potential of nanoscale semiconductor devices on the path towards a universal quantum computer, covering aspects ranging from basic physics to quantum bits.
