Entangling nuclear spins in distant quantum dots via an electron bus

Protocol for the deterministic generation of entanglement between two ensembles of nuclear spins surrounding two distant quantum dots.

The proposed protocol relies on the injection of electrons with definite polarization in each quantum dot and the coherent transfer of electrons from one quantum dot to the other. Computing the exact dynamics for small systems, and using an effective master equation and approximate non-linear equations of motion for larger systems, we are able to confirm that our protocol indeed produces entanglement for both homogeneous and inhomogeneous systems. Last, we analyze the feasibility of our protocol in several current experimental platforms.
