    In a ferromagnetic layer, an electric current parallel to the magnetization generates opposite spin–orbit torques on the two surfaces of the magnetic film, which is attributed to the generation of spin currents with a spin polarization transverse to the magnetization within the ferromagnet.

    Random sequences of unitary gate operations on an exchange-only qubit encoded in three physical electron qubits are performed using only voltage pulses and exhibit an average total error of 0.35%, where half of the error originates from leakage out of the computational subspace caused by interactions with substrate nuclear spins.

    Gate-based reflectometry enables single-shot spin readout in double quantum dots. This can help to reduce the number of gates necessary to operate a spin qubit and the per qubit device footprint, while allowing fast measurement — important characteristics for scalable quantum computing architectures.
