Description: Several silicon-based quantum computing research groups have demonstrated control of single qubits using a number of different physical implementations. Investigations have spanned qubits realized in single electrons or nuclear spins to encoded qubits in systems of multiple spins. However, demonstrations of multi-qubit control in silicon are nascent. The goal of this BAA is to solicit research that would accelerate the development of multi-qubit systems in silicon, advance understanding of the multi-qubit environment that affects high-fidelity qubit operations, and development of optimal approaches to single and two-qubit control in a multi-qubit system.
