The Nitrogen-vacancy (NV) center in diamond plays important roles in emerging quantum technologies. Currently available methods to fabricate the NV center often involve complex processes such as N implantation. By contrast, in a diamond-like compound C3BN, creating a boron (B) vacancy immediately leads to an NV center analog. We use the strongly constrained and appropriately normed (SCAN) semilocal density functional - this functional leads to nearly the same zero-phonon line (ZPL) energy as…

Predicting solid state material platforms for quantum technologies

A framework for the automated discovery of semiconductor platforms for QT using material informatics and machine learning methods is developed and it is found that an empirical approach relying exclusively on findings from the literature yields a clear separation between predicted suitable and unsuitable candidates.



New insight into the spin-conserving excitation of the negatively charged nitrogen-vacancy center in diamond

Using density-functional-theory calculations, it is found that the ZPL and the phonon-side band (PSB) depend sensitively on the axial strain of the system, which provides a means to enhance the coherent emission of the N-V− center in quantum optical networks.

Ab initio theory of the nitrogen-vacancy center in diamond

Abstract The nitrogen-vacancy (NV) center in diamond is a solid-state defect qubit with favorable coherence time up to room temperature, which could be harnessed in several quantum-enhanced sensor

Theory of spin-conserving excitation of the N-V(-) center in diamond.

By using hybrid density-functional-theory calculations in a large supercell, this work can reproduce the zero-phonon line and the Stokes and anti-Stokes shifts, yielding a complete picture of the spin-conserving excitation of this defect.

Room temperature coherent control of defect spin qubits in silicon carbide

It is demonstrated that several defect spin states in the 4H polytype of SiC (4H-SiC) can be optically addressed and coherently controlled in the time domain at temperatures ranging from 20 to 300 kelvin.

Spin-polarization of VGaON center in GaN and its application in spin qubit

VGaON center in cubic gallium nitride is a defect complex composing of a substitutional oxygen atom at nitrogen site (ON) and an adjacent gallium vacancy (VGa). Based on first-principles

Ultralong spin coherence time in isotopically engineered diamond.

Here, it is demonstrated the synthesis and application of ultrapure isotopically controlled single-crystal chemical vapour deposition (CVD) diamond with a remarkably low concentration of paramagnetic impurities, and single electron spins show the longest room-temperature spin dephasing times ever observed in solid-state systems.

Quantum computing with defects

This work presents a list of physical criteria that deep center defects and their hosts should meet and explains how these requirements can be used in conjunction with electronic structure theory to intelligently sort through candidate defect systems.
