Characterization and Properties of Color Centers in Siliconfor Integrated Quantum Information Processing at Near IR and Telecom Wavelengths, and Technologies for Their Spectral Characterization

Optically active color centers in the solid state are leading candidates for quantum information processing due to long spin coherence times and high-quality spin-photon interfaces, but traditional platforms based on diamond and silicon-carbide suffer from manufacturability and optical interfacing limitations. Color centers in silicon are emerging qubit candidates operating at telecom wavelength. Platforms based on silicon color centers can leverage the mature toolbox of large-scale silicon photonics and thousands of miles of deployed optical fiber. This webinar will discuss fabrication and properties of silicon color centers, integration into photonic devices, as well as technologies necessary to detect the low light level spectral emission required for their spectral characterization.
