Defect centers in diamond can offer atomic-like optical transitions and long-lived spin degrees of freedom. Integrating them into high quality optical resonators opens a route toward realizing a cavity quantum electrodynamics system combining atomic-like coherence with a robust solid-state platform.
While approaches based on diamond nanophotonics have been pursued for more than a decade, Fabry-Perot microcavities present a complementary approach that has recently received significant attention. In this webinar hosted by the OSA Quantum Optical Science and Technology Technical Group, Lilian Childress from McGill University will explore the potential benefits and challenges to open micro-cavities, examine progress toward coupling them to diamond defect centers, and discuss the development of an actively stabilized cryogenic system.
