Quantum emitters in layered materials are promising candidates for applications in nanophotonics. Here we present a technique based on charge transfer to graphene for measuring the charge transition levels ($\rm E_t$) of fluorescent defects in a wide bandgap 2D material, and apply it to quantum emitters in hexagonal boron nitride (hBN). Our results will aid in identifying the atomic structures of quantum emitters in hBN, as well as practical applications since $\rm E_t$ determines defect charge…

Low-Temperature Electron–Phonon Interaction of Quantum Emitters in Hexagonal Boron Nitride

Quantum emitters based on atomic defects in layered hexagonal Boron Nitride (hBN) have emerged as promising solid state 'artificial atoms' with atom-like photophysical and quantum optoelectronic

Quantum defects by design

Abstract Optically active point defects in wide-bandgap crystals are leading building blocks for quantum information technologies including quantum processors, repeaters, simulators, and sensors.

Extrinsic Effects on the Optical Properties of Surface Color Defects Generated in Hexagonal Boron Nitride Nanosheets

It is found that subsequent ozone treatments of the deposited hBN nanosheets improve the optical emission properties of created defects, as revealed by their zero-phonon linewidth narrowing and reduction of background emission.

Tunable, stable, and reversible n-type doping of MoS2 via thermal treatment in N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone

Here, we report a highly stable and reversible n-type doping of monolayer MoS2 using thermal treatment in N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP). The Raman and photoluminescence spectroscopic measurements as
