Diamond Based Quantum Computing, Interconnects and Storage
In conjunction with its work with diamond in the area of life sciences applications, Harvard University has made some fundamental discoveries into the basic science around diamond’s quantum spin states.
These spin states have allowed physicists to use diamond as a magnetically read optical medium at atomic densities. The real impact of the diamond is that the lifetime measurements of these quantum bits now exceed 100ms and are enabled and readable at room temperatures–a significant breakthrough needed to drive practical applications.
Harvard University is now pursuing a number of high impact applications ranging from quantum encryption to data storage and full-scale quantum computing at the applied research level.
