Quantum Defect Laboratory
Defects in crystals have historically played an essential role in classical electronic/optical devices. Now, new nanoscale devices are being developed based on the quantum properties of defects. We are occupied with the following questions:
What are the fundamental properties of a known defect state? Alternatively, by measuring the properties of an unknown state, can we identify it?
How can the quantum properties of a defect be engineered and controlled?
What new technologies can quantum properties of defects enable?
What new capabilities can be realized through solid-state device integration of defects?
Here you can find out how our group is trying to answer these questions.
