HRL Laboratories is a cutting-edge physical science and engineering research laboratory. The HRL clinic project aims to create a computational model which navigates through the high-dimensional potential energy landscape of a triple quantum dot system in order to automate the process of placing one electron into each quantum dot. HRL is developing these quantum dot-based devices for eventual use in quantum information processing technologies.
