The discovery and design of materials for quantum information applications is a key requirement to unleash the full potential of quantum information science.
This project, funded by AFOSR, aims at building a theoretical and computational framework tightly integrated with experiments to predict, with rapid turn-around, quantum-coherent properties of materials. The predictions will be validated by experiments whose results will in turn be interpreted theoretically.
We focus on the design of atomic defects in wide-band-gap semiconductors exhibiting optical and coherence properties appropriate for engineering qubits
A Three-Step Strategy
Identify Promising Defects
Understand and Improve Coherence Properties
Materials Design and Optimization
We are defining procedures to extract descriptors from integrated experiments and calculations to be used for materials optimization and design
