Nanodiamonds Doped with Silicon Or Argon Could Be Applied to Quantum Communication

By IQT News posted 07 May 2019

(7thSpace) Researchers at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, the University of Washington and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory announced that they can use extremely high pressure and temperature to dope nanodiamonds. The team used this approach to dope nanodiamonds with silicon, causing the diamonds to glow a deep red — a property that would make them useful for cell and tissue imaging.
The team discovered that their method could also dope nanodiamonds with argon, a noble gas and nonreactive element related to helium found in balloons. Nanodiamonds doped with such elements could be applied to quantum information science — a rapidly expanding field that includes quantum communication and quantum computing.
