Author(s): Damaz de Jong, Jasper van Veen, Luca Binci, Amrita Singh, Peter Krogstrup, Leo P. Kouwenhoven, Wolfgang Pfaff, and John D. Watson High-fidelity readout of semiconductor-based qubits (in particular, Majorana qubits of the future) could be accomplished by dispersive readout, as already used with superconducting qubits. So far, though, the dispersive signals have been small, and the required integration times much longer than typical qubit coherence times. This work shows that signal amplitude can be vastly increased by strongly coupling a sensing gate to a readout quantum dot. This coupling allows readout of this system in the microsecond regime, which is on par with the state of the art for other qubits. Here the chief limiting factor of the signal-to-noise ratio is tunnel coupling.

As the capability and complexity of UAVs continue to increase, the human-robot interface community has a responsibility to design better ways of specifying the complex 3D flight paths necessary for instructing them. Immersive interfaces, such as those afforded by virtual reality (VR), have several unique traits which may improve the user's ability to perceive and specify 3D information. These traits include stereoscopic depth cues which induce a sense of physical space as well as six degrees of freedom (DoF) natural head-pose and gesture interactions. This work introduces an open-source platform for 3D aerial path planning in VR and compares it to existing UAV piloting interfaces.
