In recent years, quantum systems have emerged as powerful platforms for developing future technologies, offering immense potential in fields such as computing, communication, and sensing, with the ability to revolutionize industries and reshape the way we approach complex problems.

The Spin-Photon lab is aimed at studying fundamental scientific principles and advancing innovative technologies by focusing on a specific class of promising quantum systems, namely optically-active spins in the solid-state.

Physical Systems

Optically-active quantum dots: artificial atoms in direct bandgap semiconductors.


  • Efficient emission of indistinguishable single photons.
  • Straightforward fabrication of nanophotonic structures.

Color centers: point defects in wide bandgap semiconductors.


  • Long spin coherence times.
  • Relatively small inhomogeneity between different emitters.
