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.


Annual Review of Physical Chemistry, 2015
Physical chemistry is a vast subject with ever-increasing radius of influence on other fields of study. Gone are the days when one could easily keep up with the forefronts of research by thumbing
however (for it was the literal soul of the life of the Redeemer, John xv. io), is the peculiar token of fellowship with the Redeemer. That love to God (what is meant here is not God’s love to men)
Patients emphasised 'having more energy' when reporting improvements in their physical health following treatment and their desire to help other patients to receive treatment was connected to their experience of the services that they received and their perceived health outcomes.
