Efficient spin-photon interfaces based on color center in diamond
Efficient spin-photon interfaces are essential for applications like quantum repeaters and quantum networks. We employ quantum interference of indistinguishable single photons as a resource for entanglement generation between remote spin systems. We utilize macroscopic solid immersion lenses and optical Fabry-Perot resonators for improved efficiency to realize scalable platforms with high connectivity and high photon generation rates.
