Distributed quantum networks via spin-photon interfaces
We investigate scalable architectures of quantum optical networks with distributed qubits and photonic interconnects using solid-state spin-based qubit systems. Experimental techniques and capabilities include state-of-the-art ultrafast optical manipulation and readout of single spins, high-rate distant entanglement generation and efficient generation of photonic cluster states.
Quantum-enhanced sensing for nanosystems & life sciences
We develop feasible and robust quantum-enhanced sensors based on diamond colour centres, and use them to reveal new physics in nanoscale length scales. Sensing modalities of interest include highly sensitive magnetometry for studying emergent magnetism in new materials, super-resolution thermometry for nanocircuits, and nanoMRI inside live cells for applications in the life sciences.
exploring novel materials for quantum-photonics devices
We seek future opportunities for physical systems harnessed for quantum information processing, with applications ranging from communication to simulation. Examples include the study of non-equilibrium and dissipative quantum dynamics in nanoscale and the investigation of novel single-photon light sources particularly amenable to integrating quantum photonic circuitry.
