We report on progress towards a charge-based qubit using phosphorus atoms implanted in a silicon substrate. Prototype devices have been fabricated using standard lithographic techniques together with a new method of controlled single ion implantation using on-chip detector electrodes. Positional accuracy of the implanted ions was achieved using a nanoaperture mask defined using electron beam lithography. The two implanted phosphorus atoms are positioned ~50 nm apart, to form a qubit test device. A series of process steps has been developed to repair implant damage, define surface control gates, and to define single electron transistors used for qubit readout via the detection of sub-electron charge transfer signals. Preliminary electrical measurements on these devices show single charge transfer events that are resilient to thermal cycling.
