A critical study of the crystal forms of diamond from various sources demonstrates that the symmetry of the structure may be either that of Class 32 or Class 31, in other words that the structure may be either centrosymmetric or non-centrosymmetric. Diamonds belonging to Class 31 may however exhibit a pseudo-octahedral symmetry of external form by reason of the interpenetration of oppositely directed structures having the lower symmetry. The existence of diamond with two differing structures…

Photons & Phonons: A room-temperature diamond quantum memory

This thesis presents demonstrations of the storage and manipulation of single photons in a room-temperature diamond quantum memory using a Raman memory protocol. We report on results from four
