Single-photon emitters: a breakthrough discovery

PhD student, Noah Mendelson, was part of the team that discovered that carbon was the source of photons in ‘white graphene’ – a two-dimensional material that holds promise for use in emerging quantum technologies. One exciting aspect of this work was identifying that the carbon atom has spin, which means it can be manipulated for […]

Study puts spin into quantum technologies

University of Technology Sydney The ability to control the spin of atom-like impurities in 2D material hexagonal boron-nitride demonstrated A team of international scientists investigating how to control the spin of atom-like impurities in 2D materials have observed the dependence of the atom’s energy on an external magnetic field for the first time. The results […]
