For the first time, Researcher at the LPENS manage to act on the motion of a mechanical oscillator, a diamond levitating in an electrostatic trap, using the spin of the few billions of NV centers contained in the diamond.

Valentina Parigi, associate professor at Sorbonne University and a member of the Kastler Brossel Laboratory (LKB) and of SIRTEQ has been awarded a 2018 ERC Consolidator Grant for her COQCOoN project and is one of the 32 French winners of these highly coveted scholarships.
The CiViQ project, in which 4 SIRTEQ teams are involved, aims at developing coherent systems of quantum communication, in particular for the QKD realization.
The group of Gabriel Hétet of SIRTEQ has reported on observations of Ramsey interferences and spin echoes from electron spins inside a levitating macroscopic particle. The experiment is realized using nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers hosted in a micron-sized diamond stored in a Paul trap both under atmospheric conditions and under vacuum.

Researchers from IRCP, working closely with UNIGE , have discovered
a new material that can be used to store and repeat the quantum signal rapidly – could this be the beginning of a global
The Quantum optics group of SIRTEQ has demontrasted the assembly of defect-free, arbitrarily shaped three-dimensional arrays, containing up to 72 single atoms using holographic methods
The team of R Carminati developed a theoretical framework for the analysis of the quantum coherence of light emitted by two single photon sources in a structured environment.
Two group of SIRTEQ JS Lauret’s at LAC and Y Chassagneux at LPA’s, in collaboration with LICSEN and the Max Planck Institute (Mainz) have shown that it is possible to access to the intrinsic properties of quantum graphene boxes composed of 96 carbon atoms
