Title: Dressed photon-orbital states in a quantum dot: Intervalley spin resonance

Abstract

Because of the symmetry in silicon quantum wells, silicon quantum dots have an extra degree of freedom leading to a small energy splitting called the valley splitting. This degree of freedom has been viewed alternately as a hazard, especially when the lowest valley-orbit splitting is small compared to the thermal energy, or as an asset, most prominently in proposals to use the valley degree of freedom itself as a qubit. Here we present experiments in which microwave electric field driving induces transitions between both valley-orbit and spin states. We show that this system is highly nonlinear and can be understood through the use of dressed photon-orbital states, enabling a unified understanding of six resonance lines we observe in these experiments.
