All-Optical Control of the Silicon-Vacancy Spin in Diamond at Millikelvin Temperatures.
The silicon-vacancy center in diamond and Hahn-echo techniques are combined to achieve all-optical coherent control of its spin states to explore spin dephasing effects in an impurity-rich sample beyond the limit of phonon-induced decoherence. Expand
Controlling the coherence of a diamond spin qubit through its strain environment
This work uses a nano-electro-mechanical system to mitigate the effect of thermal phonons on a spin qubit – the silicon-vacancy colour centre in diamond – without changing the system temperature, and demonstrates the use of strain to tune a silicon vacancy’s electronic structure and suppress phonon-mediated decoherence.

Coherent acoustic control of a single silicon vacancy spin in diamond
Phonons are considered to be universal quantum transducers due to their ability to couple to a wide variety of quantum systems. Among these systems, solid-state point defect spins are known for beingExpand
