New method developed for creating solid state qubits using lasers

NQIT researchers have taken a significant step forward in the development of solid state spin qubits by developing a new method for forming nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centres in diamond using laser writing. In a new paper published today in Nature Photonics, Yu-Chen Chen and Professor Jason Smith in the Department of Materials at Oxford University, along with Dr Patrick Salter and Prof Martin Booth from the Department of Engineering Science and colleagues at the Universities of Bristol and Warwick, demonstrate controlled generation of single NV centres in diamond at a precise location within the crystal lattice.
