New Class of Quantum Dots

A new class of quantum dots delivers a stable stream of single, spectrally tunable infrared photons under ambient conditions and at room temperature, unlike other single-photon emitters. This breakthrough opens a range of practical applications, including quantum communication, quantum metrology, medical imaging and diagnostics, and clandestine labeling. PHAROS lasers and ORPHEUS series of femtosecond optical parametric amplifiers … Continue reading

Generating Color Centers with Femtosecond Lasers

Color centers are of high interest in quantum technologies as single-photon sources or spin qubits. Researchers from Australia and Japan have applied PHAROS femtosecond lasers to generate vacancy-related color centers. The work highlights the simplicity and flexibility of laser writing of color center arrays. This research appears in the article:  “Color Centers Enabled by Direct Femto-Second Laser … Continue reading
