  author={E Janitz and Mihir K. Bhaskar and Lilian I Childress},
Coherent interfaces between optical photons and long-lived matter qubits form a key resource for a broad range of quantum technologies. Cavity quantum electrodynamics (cQED) offers a route to achieve such an interface by enhancing interactions between cavity-confined photons and individual emitters. Over the last two decades, a promising new class of emitters based on defect centers in diamond has emerged, combining long spin coherence times with atom-like optical transitions. More recently…
