Quantum Spin Dynamics

Quantum Spin Dynamics Research Group banner

Our research is focusing on the coherent motion of magnetic moments of various nature; to that end, we are using quantum devices that combine the quantum nature of spins and photons. Group activities are supervised by Prof Irinel Chiorescu from the Department of Physics & National MagLab, Florida State University.


Our research interests lie in the area of quantum effects at nanoscopic scale with a focus on quantum devices and phase coherence in various spin systems, with implications in the field of quantum information.

Understanding of spin coherence in solid-state materials has direct implications at both fundamental and applied levels because it connects concepts from atomic physics, quantum optics, solid state physics, microwave engineering, and so forth, all applied in the burgeoning field of quantum information.

Our efforts are focused on spin qubits. Manipulating spin quantum bits, however, is a delicate process, and photons are an ideal choice as they interact with quantum systems in predictable ways. A natural way of driving spin orientation is by using electromagnetic fields (photons) and in our group we explore the properties of spin-photon dressed states in various materials. Photons can be used to entangle and transfer the quantum information between spins and other types of qubits (like superconducting ones) or the cavity modes of an on-chip resonator. We perform experiments in the so-called strong coupling regime which opens the way to perform quantum measurements with detuned cavities or use the spins as future quantum memories.
