    • Carbon nanotube electromechanical systems: Non-linear dynamics and self-oscillation 

      Willick, Kyle (University of Waterloo, 2020-05-13)
      This thesis is motivated by the many sensing applications of carbon nanotube (CNT) nano-electromechanical systems (NEMS), both previous state-of-the-art demonstrations and proposed new uses. This research is particularly ...
    • Electron transport in semiconducting nanowires and quantum dots 

      Holloway, Gregory (University of Waterloo, 2017-01-10)
      Single electrons confined in electrostatic quantum dots are a promising platform for realizing spin based quantum information processing. In this scheme, the spin of each electron is encoded as a qubit, and can be manipulated ...
    • Frequency Shifting a Single Photon by Electro-Optic Modulation 

      Kobierski, Michael (University of Waterloo, 2020-01-21)
      Entanglement is a rare resource only a select few people worldwide can create. Its fundamentally non-classical behavior seeds a tree of ideas from which transformative technologies in information processing, communication, ...
    • Nanowire Quantum Dots as Sources of Single and Entangled Photons 

      Khoshnegar Shahrestani, Milad (University of Waterloo, 2014-01-21)
      Realization of linear quantum computation and establishing secure quantum communication among interacting parties demand for triggered quantum sources delivering genuine single and entangled photons. However, the intrinsic ...
    • Next-Generation Solid-State Quantum Emitters 

      Sherlekar, Nachiket Sunil (University of Waterloo, 2019-01-31)
      This thesis details two types of deterministic solid-state quantum emitters, an optically-driven quantum dot source in a tapered nanowire waveguide, and an electrically-driven source implemented by integrating a single-electron ...
