Abstract

We demonstrate fast readout of a double quantum dot (DQD) that is coupled to a superconducting resonator. Utilizing a parametric amplifier beyond its range of linear amplification, we improve the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) by a factor of 2000 compared to the situation with the parametric amplifier turned off. With an integration time of 400 ns comparable to the inverse effective bandwidth, we achieve a SNR of 76. By measuring the SNR as a function of the integration time, we extract an equivalent charge sensitivity of 8×10-5 e/Hz. The high SNR allows us to acquire a DQD charge-stability diagram in just 20 ms. At such a high data rate, it is possible to acquire charge-stability diagrams in a live "video mode," enabling real-time tuning of the DQD confinement potential.
