Dr Adam Gali, Wigner Research Centre for Physics, Hungary

Abstract

Paramagnetic and luminescent point defects in diamond could be very prospective for quantum information processing. Understanding the properties of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centre in diamond from first principles calculations contributed to the development of NV based quantum technology. Although, NV centre has been successfully employed in quantum sensing and quantum communication protocols, not all the magneto-optical properties are ideal for certain quantum technology applications. The ab initio toolkit developed in Dr Gali's research group is a powerful method to search for alternative vacancy-impurity defects in diamond for target magneto-optical properties for given quantum technology applications. Identification and characterisation of vacancy-impurity defects in diamond are presented with various zero-phonon-lines, Debye-Waller factors and energy gaps between the spin levels.
