Suppression of inhomogeneous broadening in optically addressed solids for quantum computing applications (Invited Paper) Conference Paper uri icon


  • Inhomogeneous broadening in optically addressed solids provides a convenient technique for individually addressing a large number of optically active defects in a crystal. Such a capability is important for quantum computer development. However, the random nature of inhomogeneous broadening can limit scalability. Here, techniques that can be used to suppress inhomogeneous broadening will be reviewed including a recently proposed VLSI quantum computer design based on nitrogen-vacancy (NV) color centers in diamond.
