Color centers in diamond have emerged as leading solid-state artificial atoms for a range of quantum technologies, from quantum sensing to quantum networks. Concerted research activities are now underway to identify new color centers that combine stable spin and optical properties of the nitrogen vacancy (NV$^-$) with the spectral stability of the silicon vacancy (SiV$^-$) centers in diamond, with recent research identifying other group IV color centers with superior properties. In this Letter…
