Project Content
The tin-vacancy (SnV) is a promising new system for applications in quantum technology applications. A fundamental requirement is the ability to coherently manipulate the spin state of a quantum emitter. Optical spin control of a single SnV will be investigated for the first time. Developing these techniques will enable the first direct measurement of the SnV spin coherence time (through a Hahn-echo measurement), an important metric for quantum applications. These methods enable tailored sequences for environmental decoupling.
Tasks for Interns
  • Build optical set up for pulse carving;
  • Calculation and implementation of Ramsey/Hahnecho.
