Shaping the spectrum of carbon nanotube quantum dots with superconductivity and ferromagnetism for mesoscopic quantum electrodynamics

Abstract : In this thesis, we study carbon nanotubes based quantum dot circuits embedded in a microwave cavity. This general architecture allows one to simultaneously probe the circuit via quantum transport measurements and using circuit quantum electrodynamics techniques. The two experiments realized in this thesis use metallic contacts of the circuit as a resource to engineer a spin sensitive spectrum in the quantum dots. The first one is a Cooper pair splitter which was originally proposed as a source of non local entangled electrons. By using cavity photons as a probe of the circuit internal dynamics, we observed a charge transition dressed by coherent Cooper pair splitting. Strong charge-photon coupling in a quantum dot circuit was demonstrated for the first time in such a circuit. A new fabrication technique has also been developed to integrate pristine carbon nanotubes inside quantum dot circuits. The purity and tunability of this new generation of devices has made possible the realization of the second experiment. In the latter, we uses two non-collinear spin-valves to create a coherent interface between an electronic spin in a double quantum dot and a photon in a cavity. Highly coherent spin transitions have been observed. We provide a model for the decoherence based on charge noise and nuclear spin fluctuations.
