The quantum world of diamonds

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, computing, quantum physics

3 mins. This is really fascinating. Several applications, including quantum computing. Need special diamonds that scientists now can produce.

Diamonds are dazzling physicists with their powerful quantum properties. A particular impurity — the nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centre — allows diamonds to be used for everything from geolocation to diagnosing disease. This animation takes a closer look at these NV centres, and the carefully crafted artificial diamonds that make them possible.
