Polarization-selective excitation of nitrogen vacancy centers in diamond
The nitrogen vacancy (NV) center in diamond is promising as an electron spin qubit due to its long-lived coherence and optical addressability. The ground state is a spin triplet with two levelsExpand

Observation of quantum motion of a nanomechanical resonator.
In this Letter we use resolved sideband laser cooling to cool a mesoscopic mechanical resonator to near its quantum ground state (phonon occupancy 2.6±0.2), and observe the motional sidebandsExpand
