    • Coherent Sensing of a Mechanical Resonator with a Single-Spin Qubit 

      Kolkowitz, Shimon Jacob; Bleszynski Jayich, A. C.; Unterreithmeier, Quirin; Bennett, S. D.; Rabl, P.; Harris, J. G. E.; Lukin, Mikhail D. (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2012)
      Mechanical systems can be influenced by a wide variety of small forces, ranging from gravitational to optical, electrical, and magnetic. When mechanical resonators are scaled down to nanometer-scale dimensions, these forces ...
    • Gravitational wave detection with optical lattice atomic clocks 

      Kolkowitz, S; Pikovski, Igor; Langellier, Nicholas Ryan; Lukin, Mikhail D.; Walsworth, Ronald Lee; Ye, J. (American Physical Society (APS), 2016)
      We propose a space-based gravitational wave (GW) detector consisting of two spatially separated, drag-free satellites sharing ultrastable optical laser light over a single baseline. Each satellite contains an optical lattice ...
    • Measuring mechanical motion with a single spin 

      Bennett, S D; Kolkowitz, Shimon Jacob; Unterreithmeier, Quirin; Rabl, P; Bleszynski Jayich, A C; Harris, J G E; Lukin, Mikhail D. (Institute of Physics, 2012)
      We study theoretically the measurement of a mechanical oscillator using a single two-level system as a detector. In a recent experiment, we used a single electronic spin associated with a nitrogen–vacancy center in diamond ...
    • Nanoscale Sensing With Individual Nitrogen-Vacancy Centers in Diamond 

      Kolkowitz, Shimon Jacob (2015-04-07)
      Nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond have recently emerged as a promising new system for quantum information and nanoscale sensing applications. They have long coherence times at room temperature and can be positioned ...
    • A quantum spin transducer based on nanoelectromechanical resonator arrays 

      Rabl, P.; Kolkowitz, Shimon Jacob; Koppens, F. H. L.; Harris, J. G. E.; Zoller, P.; Lukin, Mikhail D. (Nature Publishing Group, 2010)
      Isolated electronic and nuclear spins in solids are at present being actively explored for potential quantum-computing applications. Spin degrees of freedom provide an excellent quantum memory, owing to their weak magnetic ...
    • Sensing Distant Nuclear Spins with a Single Electron Spin 

      Kolkowitz, Shimon Jacob; Unterreithmeier, Quirin; Bennett, Steven; Lukin, Mikhail D. (American Physical Society (APS), 2012)
      We experimentally demonstrate the use of a single electronic spin to measure the quantum dynamics of distant individual nuclear spins from within a surrounding spin bath. Our technique exploits coherent control of the ...
