Quantum applications

Due to their unique chemical makeup, lab-grown diamonds are applied for research in quantum mechanics, quantum photonics and computing.

Since such diamonds are grown under controlled conditions and many of them have no impurities, it is possible to create the small diamonds which have the correctly placed negatively charged nitrogen-vacancy centers (an atomic level micro defect of chemical lattice). Such diamonds are proven to be crucial for information storage. When they are applied for these purposes, less cooling efforts are required, which may allow for faster quantum computers. While this technology is only in its development stage, more and more scientists are using lab-grown diamonds for quantum research.
