Quantum computation requires qubits that can be coupled in a scalable manner, together with universal and high-fidelity one-and two-qubit logic gates 1, 2. Many physical realizations of qubits exist, including single photons 3, trapped ions 4, superconducting circuits 5, single defects or atoms in diamond 6, 7 and silicon 8, and semiconductor quantum dots 9, with single-qubit fidelities that exceed the stringent thresholds required for fault-tolerant quantum computing 10. Despite this, high-fidelity two-qubit gates in the solid state that can be manufactured using standard lithographic techniques have so far been limited to superconducting qubits 5, owing to the difficulties of coupling qubits and dephasing in semiconductor systems 11, 12, 13. Here we present a two-qubit logic gate, which uses single spins in isotopically enriched silicon 14 and is realized by performing single-and two-qubit operations in a quantum dot …
