Researchers at UC Santa Barbara have potentially opened up a new avenue toward room-temperature solid-state quantum information processing.
They discovered previously invisible “dark” (not visually detectable) spins from nitrogen defects in the diamond crystal.
“We have found a channel for moving information between single electron spins at room temperature,” said Awschalom, David Awschalom, a professor of physics. This is an initial step towards spin-based information processing.
