Quantum Emitters for Telecommunication in the O-Band


Project website

A webpage for the project with a project description, H2020 ackowledgement and links to all partners will be hosted and maintained by UNIVIE.

Social media accounts, student blog and introductory outreach video online

A student blog section will be added and an introductory video describing the project will be posted on the project website. Social media (e.g Twitter) will be linked to the website and used to divulge project news.

High-purity SiC sample for ensemble and single-centre experiments, including isotopical engineering

LIU will create high-purity SiC layers grown on commercial substrates. These samples will have different characteristics (dopant density and layer thickness) for ensemble and single-centre experiments. Isotopic engineering will be used to determine the effect of 29Si, 30Si and 13C on the properties of the emitters, such as inhomogeneous broadening of the optical transition and the on the ESR linewidth. The deliverable will contain a description of the growth procedure and first characterization results.

Theoretical optimization of protocols for electrically-driven ensemble quantum memory

In this report, we will describe the results of spectroscopy and theoretical results on Mo and V spin ensembles. These results will enable us to define the optimal spin-photon interfacing parameters. We will include an outline of the resulting protocols in the deliverable.

SiC membrane: <5 μm thickness, < 1nm RMS roughness

Thin membranes with low roughness are required for integration with Fabry-Pérot and photonic crystal cavities. We will describe the creation of such membranes, including the intended path towards thinner and smoother layers for improved performance.

Data management plan

The DMP will be submitted, and will include provisions for storage, internal sharing and external access to project data and publications.
