Project B11:
Quantum simulator with engineered spin arrays in diamond (2013-2017)


In this project we will realize experimentally our theoretical proposal of a new solid-state architecture for a scalable solid state based quantum simulator that (i) can operate at room temperature thus obviating the need for elaborate cooling techniques; (ii) does not require external fields to trap its constituent particles in ultra-high vacuum; (iii) permits control by easy to handle radiofrequency and microwave fields and (iv) exhibits an exceptionally high ratio of coherence times to fundamental interaction time scales.
