ABSTRACT We report on the realization and top-gating of a two-dimensional electron system in a nuclear spin free environment using 28Si and 70Ge source material in molecular beam epitaxy. Electron spin decoherence is expected to be minimized in nuclear spin-free materials, making them promising hosts for solid-state based quantum information processing devices. The two-dimensional electron system exhibits a mobility of 18000 cm2/Vs at a sheet carrier density of 4.6E11 cm-2 at low temperatures. Feasibility of reliable gating is demonstrated by transport through split-gate structures realized with palladium Schottky top-gates which effectively control the two-dimensional electron system underneath. Our work forms the basis for the realization of an electrostatically defined quantum dot in a nuclear spin free environment.
