Optically induced spin polarisation: the role of electron-vibration interactions

  • Manson, Neil (PI)

    Project: Research

    Project Details


    The nitrogen-vacancy centre in diamond has been used for applications from room temperature quantum information processing, to nano-magnetometry, to biological probe but it is unclear whether the centre is being used in an optimum way as its intrinsic properties are not fully known. From a launch pad of a new model of the centre where electron-vibration interaction plays a significant role it is intended to establish the fundamental properties. The improved understanding will enable the efficiencies of applications to be assessed. It will also be investigated whether the properties of the centre can be controlled to enhance applications and their capabilities. .
