Quantum memories are critical for solid-state quantum computing devices and a good quantum memory requires both long storage time and fast read/write operations. A promising system is the Nitrogen-Vacancy (NV) center in diamond, where the NV electronic spin serves as the computing qubit and a nearby nuclear spin as the memory qubit. Previous works used remote, weakly coupled $^{13}$C nuclear spins, trading read/write speed for long storage time. Here we focus instead on the intrinsic strongly…
