This study elucidates the theory of phonon-induced decoherence of a double dot charge qubit that is embedded inside a suspended semiconductor slab. The influences of the lattice temperature, width of the slab, and positions of the dots on the decoherence are analyzed. Numerical results indicate that the decoherence in the slab system is weaker than that in a bulk environment. In particular, the decoherence is markedly suppressed by the inhibition of the electron-phonon coupling. Such a system with low decoherence may be useful for manipulating the qubits.
