We present a theoretical proposal of a tunable charge qubit, hosted in triple quantum dots. The manipulation is solely performed by changing the heights of the two potential barriers between the three dots, while the energies of all three dots are fixed. We have found that when the relative heights of the two barriers are changed, the direction of the axis of rotation in performing single-qubit gates can be varied. On the other hand, the corresponding rotation speed can be tuned by raising or lowering the two barriers at the same time. Our proposal therefore allows for tunability of both the rotation axis and rotating speed for a charge qubit via all-electrical control, which may facilitate realization of quantum algorithms in these devices.
