Daniel's paper published in Physical Review X


Daniels's paper "Deterministic enhancement of coherent photon generation from a nitrogen-vacancy center in ultrapure diamond" was published in PRX. We couple NV centers to a tunable microcavity and significantly enhance their photonic properties: i.e. we demonstrate an increase of the phonon-free emission--which is required for entanglement swapping schemes--from 4% to close to 50%. By making a step-change in the NV's optical properties in a deterministic way, these results pave the way for much enhanced spin-photon and spin-spin entanglement rates.
