On-chip hybrid Superconducting-Semiconducting Circuit

30 Jul 2018

In this paper, we experimentally demonstrate a hybrid superconducting-semiconducting (S-Sm) circuit consisting of eight planar and ballistic Nb-In0.75Ga0.25As-Nb Josephson junctions. E-beam lithography was used to fabricate the Josephson junctions on an InGaAs chip. In contrast to our previous studies on long junctions that were fabricated by photolithography, in this study, we observe the induced superconductivity in an In0.75Ga0.25As quantum well at higher temperatures, between T= 0.3 and 1.4 K (3He cryostat temperature range). The induced superconducting gap of & #x0394;ind= 0.65 meV was measured at lowest base temperature T= 300 mK. The effect of temperature and magnetic fields B on the induced superconductivity are presented. Our results suggest that our In0.75Ga0.25As heterojunctions is a promising scalable material system for quantum processing and computing applications.
