Diamond Quantum Technologies

693. WE-Heraeus-Seminar

25 Mar - 28 Mar 2019


Physikzentrum Bad Honnef

Scientific organizers:

Dr. Friedemann Reinhard, TU München • Dr. Elke Neu‐Ruffing, U des Saarlandes • Prof. Dr. Jörg Wrachtrup, U Stuttgart

The WE-Heraeus seminar "Diamond Quantum Technologies" will summarize and discuss the state of the art in quantum devices made from diamond.

Diamond is a front-runner candidate for many applications in quantum sensing and quantum communication, mostly because it hosts NV color centers that can be operated as a quantum bit with very little technical effort under ambient conditions. The seminar will give an overview of the state of the art of this field, with a focus on applications in sensing and photonics as well as nanofabrication of diamond devices. It aims to bring together the numerous European groups that have entered this area of research in the past few years, and to give an introduction to junior researchers starting work in the field.

The conference language will be English. The Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation bears the cost of full-board accommodation for all participants.
