QC WORKSHOP 22: Spin defects in diamond for quantum applications

pendant lamp turned on

Recent years have witnessed the rapid development of various applications based on quantum information science. Among the many physical platforms, spin defect in diamond, namely nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers, has attracted a lot of attention thanks to its good controllability and long coherence time even at room temperature. We will give a brief introduction to this platform and explore its potential in different quantum fields.


Changhao Li is currently a Ph.D. candidate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He got his bachelor’s degree in physics at Xi’an Jiaotong University in 2017. He has been working on developing various quantum applications based on spin defects in diamonds, including quantum simulators and novel quantum sensors that can detect biological or chemical signals.


  1. Basics of the nitrogen-vacancy (NV) center platform
  2. NV center and nuclear spins as qubit systems
  3. Typical system characterization methods, including coherence time measurement, dynamical decoupling, and charge state measurement.
  4. How to develop various quantum sensors such as COVID19 sensor based on NV centers
  5. Recent experimental progres
