Diamond Membranes for Quantum Computing

Diamond Membranes for Quantum Computing

By using microwave CVD, high quality, single crystal diamond membranes have been epitaxially grown. The resulting material exhibits bright luminescence and good electron spin coherences times, suitable for application in quantum computing.
