Materials are playing pivotal role in development of new technologies. Rapid development of quantum technologies including quantum information, communication and sensing is based on successful realization of novel tailored nanomaterials allowing to explore entanglement and coherence as a resource. These materials include solid state qubits, single photon sources and platforms for sensing and metrology. Quantum materials developed during last decade allow to accomplish simultaneously readout, coherent control of solid-state qubits and their isolation form environment. Platforms that were developed in this context include wide band gap hosts with engineered color centers (diamond, silicon carbide), phosphor dopants in silicon, semiconductor quantum dots, two dimensional materials and hybrid materials bringing together different material platforms with complementary functionalities.
Advanced fabrication technique like nanostructuring is playing essential role in this field. Synthesis of ultrapure materials and isotopic engineering of materials is essential for spin-based qubits. Another key element is the ability to engineer single dopants with high spatial resolution. Top down approaches like ion implantation can be complemented with bottom up techniques allowing to assemble qubits using chemical or physical interactions. New methods allowing characterization of materials and interfaces with high sensitivity will become crucial. Many material platforms were discovered empirically, but new development of modeling of material properties allow to predict and design quantum materials.
The aim of this special issue is to report recent development of advanced material platforms for quantum technologies including materials synthesis, their theoretical modelling and experimental demonstrations of applications in quantum science and technologies. It is envisaged to cover the wide range of technologies including quantum sensing, quantum metrology, quantum communications and quantum computing.
