A generalizable TCAD framework for silicon FinFET spin qubit devices with electrical control

View publication


We present a TCAD-based simulation framework established for quantum dot spin qubits in a silicon FinFET platform with all-electrical control of the spin state. The framework works down to 1 K and consists of a two-step simulation chain, from definition of the quantum dot confinement potential with DC bias voltages, to calculation of microwave response electric field at qubit locations using small-signal AC analysis. An average field polarization vector at each quantum dot is extracted via a post-processing step. We demonstrate functionality of this approach by simulation of a recently reported two-qubit device in the form of a 5-gate silicon FinFET. The impact of the number of holes in each quantum dot on the MW response E-field polarization direction is further investigated for this device. The framework is easily generalizable to study future multi-qubit large-scale systems.
