CCNY researchers take snap shots of wandering electrons in diamonds

A breakthrough experiment by a City College of New York team led by physicist Carlos Meriles could potentially lead to room-temperature quantum information processing in diamonds and optical data storage in three dimensions. Meriles and his researchers successfully demonstrated charge transport between Nitrogen-Vacancy color centers in diamonds. The team developed a novel multi-color scanning microscopy technique to visualize the charge transport. Read More »
