Electrical readout of electron-nuclear spins in a diamond quantum chip at room temperature

Imec shows the electrical readout of entangled diamond nuclear-electron spins at room temperature which enables quantum device scaling and integration.

Summary

Nuclear spins in diamonds are promising candidates for quantum technologies because of their long coherence times

The key to diamond quantum applications is the nitrogen-vacancy center in the crystal that gives access to both nuclear and electron spins 

The team of Milos Nesladek in imo-imomec succeeded in the electrical readout of entangled nuclear-electron spins at room temperature

This is important for device scaling and integration as well as applications such as ambient sensing
