Integrated quantum photonic technologies are key for future applications in quantum information, ultralow-power opto-electronics and sensing. As individual quantum bits, nitrogen-vacancy centres in diamond are among the most promising solid-state systems identified to date, because of their long-lived electron and nuclear spin coherence, and capability for individual optical initialization, readout and information storage. The major outstanding hurdle lies in interconnecting many nitrogen… 
Efficient extraction of zero-phonon-line photons from single nitrogen-vacancy centers in an integrated GaP-on-diamond platform
Scaling beyond two-node quantum networks using nitrogen vacancy (NV) centers in diamond is limited by the low probability of collecting zero phonon line (ZPL) photons from single centers. Here, we
