Primary activity: Our research activity is focused on dynamics and control of single color centers in diamond and nanodiamond, with application to quantum information and communication, and quantum metrology.
Optically active defects in diamond, so called color centers, have emerged in recent years, thanks to the high fluorescence photostability of the single centers, and feasible control of localized and highly coherent spins associated to the centers, even at room temperature.
We are exploring the use of individual NV centers for quantum-enhanced magnetic field sensing, developing novel schemes for spin control for extending coherence and improve the sensitivity of the spin qubit as magnetometer. We are also interested in the creation of large scalable systems for quantum information processing in diamond using photonic architectures.
We also work on the investigation of ultracold gases in optical potentials for quantum simulation of condensed-matter systems, quantum control and quantum information.

Main experiences acquired: atomic physics, laser cooling, optical and magnetic manipulation of ultracold atoms, Bose-Einstein Condensation. quantum optics and metrology, color centers in diamond; spectroscopy techniques, inelastic light-scattering (Bragg spectroscopy), Hanbury-Brown and Twiss interferometry; scanning confocal microscopy, optical detected magnetic resonance.
