Implementation of advanced quantum protocols using the diamond nitrogen-vacancy center
Dirk R. Englund
I will be working on adapting the experimental setup (MATLAB software, hardware and control interface) to enable the use of advanced quantum control sequences so that improvements can be made in the characterization and development of cutting-edge quantum photonic systems. I hope to advance the control of the qubit, decoupling it from sources of noise, extending its phase coherence time, and allowing it to be used as an extremely precise electromagnetic field sensor.
During the summer of 2012, I worked in the Electronic Materials Laboratory at MIT (EMAT) under Professor Kimerling. I was in charge of testing and characterizing diodes, that were made of materials such as silicon, germanium, cadmium zinc telluride, and aluminum gallium arsenide, using several different methods including deep- level transient spectroscopy, capacitance voltage measurements, current voltage measurements, and photovoltaic tests.
