The authors demonstrate operation of a charge readout scheme for quantum dots in a semiconductor

nanowire using a quantum point contact defined in a GaAs/AlGaAs two-dimensional electron gas

beneath the nanowire. The quantum dots were fabricated by epitaxial growth of InP barriers along

a n-type InAs nanowire. Applying negative voltages to two split-gate electrodes aligned to the

nanowire induces a quantum point contact in the two-dimensional electron gas such that charging of

quantum dots in the nanowire modulates the quantum point contact transmission, thus resulting in

the desired detector response.
