    • All-Optical Initialization, Readout, and Coherent Preparation of Single Silicon-Vacancy Spins in Diamond 

      Rogers, Lachlan J.; Jahnke, Kay D.; Metsch, Mathias H.; Sipahigil, Alp; Binder, Jan M.; Teraji, Tokuyuki; Sumiya, Hitoshi; Isoya, Junichi; Lukin, Mikhail D.; Hemmer, Philip; Jelezko, Fedor (American Physical Society (APS), 2014)
      The silicon-vacancy (SiV−) color center in diamond has attracted attention because of its unique optical properties. It exhibits spectral stability and indistinguishability that facilitate efficient generation of photons ...
    • Electron–phonon processes of the silicon-vacancy centre in diamond 

      Jahnke, Kay D; Sipahigil, Alp; Binder, Jan M; Doherty, Marcus W; Metsch, Mathias; Rogers, Lachlan J; Manson, Neil B; Lukin, Mikhail D.; Jelezko, Fedor (IOP Publishing, 2015)
      We investigate phonon induced electronic dynamics in the ground and excited states of the negatively charged silicon-vacancy (SiV−) centre in diamond. Optical transition line widths, transition wavelength and excited state ...
    • Indistinguishable Photons from Separated Silicon-Vacancy Centers in Diamond 

      Sipahigil, Alp; Jahnke, K. D.; Rogers, L. J.; Teraji, T.; Isoya, J.; Zibrov, Alexander S; Jelezko, F.; Lukin, Mikhail D. (American Physical Society (APS), 2014)
      We demonstrate that silicon-vacancy (SiV) centers in diamond can be used to efficiently generate coherent optical photons with excellent spectral properties. We show that these features are due to the inversion symmetry ...
    • Narrow-Linewidth Homogeneous Optical Emitters in Diamond Nanostructures via Silicon Ion Implantation 

      Evans, Ruffin Eley; Sipahigil, Alp; Sukachev, Denis; Zibrov, Alexander S; Lukin, Mikhail D. (American Physical Society (APS), 2016)
      The negatively-charged silicon-vacancy (SiV−) center in diamond is a bright source of indistinguishable single photons and a useful resource in quantum information protocols. Until now, SiV− centers with narrow optical ...
    • Novel fabrication of diamond nanophotonics coupled to single-photon detectors 

      Atikian, Haig Avedis; Meesala, Srujan; Burek, Michael John; Sohn, Young-Ik; Israelian, Johan; Patri, Adarsh S.; Clarke, Nigel; Sipahigil, Alp; Evans, Ruffin Eley; Sukachev, Denis; Westervelt, Robert M.; Lukin, Mikhail D.; Loncar, Marko (SPIE-Intl Soc Optical Eng, 2017)
      Freestanding diamond nanostructures are etched from a bulk diamond substrate and integrated with evanescently coupled superconduncting nanowire single-photon detectors.
    • Phonon-Induced Population Dynamics and Intersystem Crossing in Nitrogen-Vacancy Centers 

      Goldman, Michael Lurie; Sipahigil, Alp; Doherty, M. W.; Yao, Norman Ying; Bennett, Steven; Markham, M.; Twitchen, D. J.; Manson, N. B.; Kubanek, Alexander; Lukin, Mikhail D. (American Physical Society (APS), 2015)
      We report direct measurement of population dynamics in the excited state manifold of a nitrogen-vacancy (NV) center in diamond. We quantify the phonon-induced mixing rate and demonstrate that it can be completely suppressed ...
    • Quantum Interference of Single Photons from Remote Nitrogen-Vacancy Centers in Diamond 

      Sipahigil, Alp; Goldman, Michael Lurie; Togan, E; Chu, Yiwen; Markham, M.; Twitchen, D. J.; Zibrov, Alexander S; Kubanek, Alexander; Lukin, Mikhail D. (American Physical Society (APS), 2012)
      We demonstrate quantum interference between indistinguishable photons emitted by two nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in distinct diamond samples separated by two meters. Macroscopic solid immersion lenses are used to enhance ...
    • State-selective intersystem crossing in nitrogen-vacancy centers 

      Goldman, Michael Lurie; Doherty, M. W.; Sipahigil, Alp; Yao, Norman Ying; Bennett, Steven; Manson, N. B.; Kubanek, Alexander; Lukin, Mikhail D. (American Physical Society (APS), 2015)
      The intersystem crossing (ISC) is an important process in many solid-state atomlike impurities. For example, it allows the electronic spin state of the nitrogen-vacancy (NV) center in diamond to be initialized and read out ...
