Hanson Lab

We exploit the remarkable properties of spins in diamond to study and engineer interactions between individual quantum systems in often very fundamental physics experiments, with the long-term goal of building a quantum computer and realizing a quantum internet. Our work is highly interdisciplinary, combining the fields of quantum optics, condensed matter physics, quantum information, nano-fabrication and quantum physics theory. Thanks to a number of exciting breakthroughs our systems currently operate at the cutting edge of quantum science, enabling exploration of open scientific questions as well as pushing the state of the art in quantum information processing.
