Novel Technique to Record Quantum Mechanical Behavior of an Electron Within a Nanoscale Defect

Novel Technique to Record Quantum Mechanical Behavior of an Electron Within a Nanoscale Defect

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, University of Chicago, University of California, Santa Barbara and University of Konstanz, Germany, have developed a technique to record the quantum mechanical behavior of an individual electron contained within a nanoscale defect in diamond. Their technique uses ultrafast pulses of laser light both to control the defect’s entire quantum state and observe how that single electron state changes over time. [More]
Researchers in Quantum Engineering Explore both Basic and Applied Research

Researchers in Quantum Engineering Explore both Basic and Applied Research

It can be difficult to distinguish between basic and applied research in the nascent field of quantum engineering. One person’s exploration of quantum systems like atoms and electrons yields another’s building block for quantum computers, and vice versa. [More]

Hydrogen-Treated Fibers May Help Reduce Errors in Quantum Computing

To make a better optical fiber for transmitting laser beams, the first idea that comes to mind is probably not a nice long hydrogen bath. [More]
Robust Approach to Certify Quantum Devices

Robust Approach to Certify Quantum Devices

An international team including CQT researchers has come up with a "robust and versatile" scheme for doing quality testing of quantum devices. The scheme is described in a 22 July paper in Physical Review Letters. [More]
Diamonds and Nitrogen Atoms Could be Assembled to Create Topologically Protected Quantum Computer

Diamonds and Nitrogen Atoms Could be Assembled to Create Topologically Protected Quantum Computer

The Quantum Computer is the Holy Grail of quantum technology. Its computing power would eclipse even the fastest classical computers we have today. A team of researchers from TU Wien (Vienna) the National Institute for Informatics (Tokyo) and NTT Basic Research Labs in Japan has now proposed a new architecture for quantum computing, based on microscopic defects in diamond.

NIST Ion Duet Holds Promise for Logic Operations in Future Quantum Computers

Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated a pas de deux of atomic ions that combines the fine choreography of dance with precise individual control. [More]
Controlled Positioning of Atomic-Scale Diamond Defects May Help Build Better Quantum Computers

Controlled Positioning of Atomic-Scale Diamond Defects May Help Build Better Quantum Computers

By carefully controlling the position of an atomic-scale diamond defect within a volume smaller than what some viruses would fill, researchers have cleared a path toward better quantum computers and nanoscale sensors. They describe their technique in a paper published in the journal Applied Physics Letters, from AIP Publishing. [More]
