Abstract

Electrons floating on the surface of liquid helium are possible spin qubits for quantum information processing. Varying electric potentials are not expected to modify spin states, which allows their transport on helium using a charge-coupled device (CCD)-like array of underlying gates. This approach depends upon efficient intergate transfer of individual electrons. Measurements are presented here of the charge transfer efficiency of few electrons clocked back and forth above a short microscopic CCD-like structure. A charge transfer efficiency of 0.999 999 92 is obtained for a clocking frequency of 800 kHz.
