    Multicontact transport measurements were performed on a superconducting tin nanowire to probe its local properties and especially the formation of phase-slip centers (PSCs). We find that normal metal contacts strongly disturb the behavior of the nanowire. In particular, they provide an efficient...

    Controlling decoherence is the biggest challenge in efforts to develop quantum information hardware. Single electron spins in gallium arsenide are a leading candidate among implementations of solid-state quantum bits, but their strong coupling to nuclear spins produces high decoherence rates....
