MSE 404 QS1 - Quantum States
Last offered Spring 2024
Experiments include direct hands-on investigations or are performed through computational approaches. Laboratory experiences include both fundamental studies as well as investigations on more applied topics. Course Information: 1.5 undergraduate hours. 1.5 graduate hours. May be repeated if topics vary. Prerequisite: MSE 307 and MSE 308 or permission of instructor. Senior standing.
Module 2: Coherent control of quantum states of the NV- defect in diamond.
In this lab module, students will study the control of the quantum states of an ensemble of NV- defects in diamond, use pulsed sequences to determine the longitudinal and transverse relaxation times of the defect, and design pulse sequences to control the sensitivity of the NV- defect to temperature and magnetic field.
