Abstract

Single ion implantation and online detection is highly desirable for the emerging application, in which single 31P ions need to be inserted in prefabricated silicon cells to construct solid-state quantum bits (qubits). In order to fabricate qubit arrays, we have developed novel detectors that employ detector electrodes adjacent to the prefabricated cells that can detect single keV ion strikes appropriate for the fabrication of shallow phosphorus arrays. The method utilises a high purity silicon substrate with very high resistivity, a thin SiO2 surface layer, nanometer masks for the lateral positioning single phosphorus implantation, biased electrodes applied to the surface of the silicon and..
