Our research focuses on addressing and manipulating isolated quantum systems, with the following goals:

  • Studying fundamental quantum physics and quantum information science
  • Using them as building blocks for quantum computing and quantum simulation of many-body systems
  • Devising novel, sensitive nanoscale sensors

Currently our research is based on a specific defect in diamond, the Nitrogen Vacancy (NV) color center, which exhibits remarkable and unique properties, including long coherence (~ ms) times at room temperature, optical initialization and readout, and coherent microwave control.
