DCM2017 tutorial

The tutorial will take place on Sunday 3 September 2017 in the afternoon.

Igor Aharonovich, University of Technology Sydney, Australia
Tutorial title: Advanced diamond nanofabrication techniques for quantum sensing and nanophotonics

In this tutorial I will start by explaining methods for diamond nanofabrication techniques. Those will include reactive ion etching, electron beam etching, lift-off and overgrowth. I will then provide detailed methodology to tailor these nanofab techniques towards photonic and quantum devices, including optical cavities, resonators, sensors, magnetometers and transistors.

In the second part, I will explain how to engineer colour centres into these nanostructures. I will put extra focus on emerging colour centres, such as silicon vacancy and germanium vacancy. Those have recently been utilised for advanced quantum information.

In the third part of the tutorial, I will discuss main challenges in the field and provide an outlook. In particular, I will focus on tangible and achievable progress that can be then employed by PhD students and ECRs.
