Symposium QQ

Diamond and Single Photon Emitters

The field of quantum photonics encompasses the research for establishment of tools and techniques for manipulation of quantum optical signals with immediate applications in quantum information processing, quantum communication and sensing. The core focus of the quantum photonics research is focused on realization of single photon emitters. Examples of single photon emitters include quantum dots, optically active impurities (color centers) in wide bandgap materials such as diamond, silicon carbide and zinc oxide.

In the last decade, diamond emerged as an exciting material for photonics applications. color centers in diamond offer photo-stable, and bright single photon emitters which cover the whole visible spectra. In addition, diamond has excellent thermal and mechanical properties.

This symposium aims to bring together scientists and engineers to share and discuss recent development in the field of diamond and single photon – based photonics. It will cover both theoretical and experimental developments.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Single photon emission from quantum dots, hexagonal boron nitride, and optically active impurities (color centers) in wide bandgap materials such as diamond, silicon carbide and zinc oxide.
  • Diamond optical devices (waveguides, resonators etc.)
  • Fabrication, and Characterizations of diamond based photonic devices
  • Hybrid structures combining diamond with other dielectrics or metals for quantum information sensing
  • Diamond bio-optics
  • Diamond optomechanics
  • Diamond-based quantum computing and quantum information processing
  • Diamond-based magnetometry
  • Computational and Modeling methods in diamond photonics
