Elektrisch steuerbare Quantenbits realisiert

Ein internationales Forscherteam hat erstmals ein Quantenbit hergestellt und gesteuert, das aus drei sogenannten Quantenpunkten besteht. Der Versuch belegt, dass sich solche Triplett-Quantenbits einfacher kontrollieren lassen als Quantenbits aus einem einzelnen oder zwei Quantenpunkten.
