In a new feature from the April edition of Physics World, Element Six’s Matthew Markham and Daniel Twitchen delve into the practical quantum applications of our engineered chemical vapour deposition (CVD) diamond solutions.
Diamond is a remarkable material with properties so diverse it is used in a broad spectrum of applications including the machining of smartphones, high power lasers for automotive manufacturing and high-end audio systems. Now, thanks to continued scientific progress in the optimisation of Element Six’s CVD process, synthetic diamond materials with engineered levels of QuBits made up of nitrogen vacancy (NV) defects are leading the way in enabling next generation quantum technologies such as magnetic sensing devices.
Current quantum technology research covers a range of areas including sensing, networking and information processing, with the potential to impact the healthcare and automotive industries, as well as the development of new materials. Diamond’s room temperature operation, the accessibility of material and the simplicity of the components have enabled the development of numerous quantum device proposals with the potential of fostering multiple applications.
As we enter the fourth industrial revolution, diamond science and technology are at the forefront of research. Element Six’s role in the transfer of these technological breakthroughs from our research labs into start-up and established businesses is imperative in creating diamond quantum-based devices of the future.
