    • 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 ...
