SignificanceAtomic defects in solid-state materials are promising candidates as quantum bits, or qubits. New materials are actively being investigated as hosts for new defect qubits; however, there


Spin coherence in two-dimensional materials
Spin defects in semiconducting solids are promising platforms for the realization of quantum bits. At low temperature and in the presence of a large magnetic field, the central spin decoherence is
Properties of nitrogen-vacancy centers in diamond: the group theoretic approach
We present a procedure that makes use of group theory to analyze and predict the main properties of the negatively charged nitrogen-vacancy (NV) center in diamond. We focus on the relatively low
Electrically and mechanically tunable electron spins in silicon carbide color centers.
It is shown that spin-spin interactions in 4H-SiC neutral divacancies give rise to spin states with a strong Stark effect, sub-10(-6) strain sensitivity, and highly spin-dependent photoluminescence with intensity contrasts of 15%-36%.
Design of defect spins in piezoelectric aluminum nitride for solid-state hybrid quantum technologies
A strain-driven scheme to rationally design defect spins in functional ionic crystals, which may operate as potential qubits in wide-band gap semiconductors, paving the way to controlling the spin properties of defects in ionic systems for potential spintronic technologies.
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.
Designing defect-based qubit candidates in wide-gap binary semiconductors
The development of novel quantum bits is key to extend the scope of solid-state quantum information science and technology. Using first-principles calculations, we propose that large metal ion -
Quantum decoherence dynamics of divacancy spins in silicon carbide
It is shown that the Hahn-echo coherence time of electron spins associated with divacancy defects in 4H–SiC reaches 1.3 ms, one of the longest coherence times of an electron spin in a naturally isotopic crystal, and points to polyatomic crystals as promising hosts for coherent qubits in the solid state.
Quantum‐mechanical condensed matter simulations with CRYSTAL
The latest release of the Crystal program for solid‐state quantum‐mechanical ab initio simulations is presented. The program adopts atom‐centered Gaussian‐type functions as a basis set, which makes
All-electron density functional calculations for electron and nuclear spin interactions in molecules and solids
The interaction between electronic and nuclear spins in the presence of external magnetic fields can be described by a spin Hamiltonian, with parameters obtained from first principles, electronic
Ab initio calculation of hyperfine and superhyperfine interactions for shallow donors in semiconductors.
For the shallow group V donors in Si we show that the hyperfine interaction for the donor nucleus and the superhyperfine interactions for the first five shells of Si ligands can be quite accurately
