Research Type: 
The Solid State Physics group of the University of Torino conducts a research program focused on several topics in materials science, aimed at exploring and developing solid-state-based architectures for the following applications in Quantum Technologies: i) Quantum Communication, ii) Quantum Metrology, Sensing and Imaging, iii) Quantum Computing.
The research program is organized in the following topics:
1) Artificial diamond: The research group has a long-standing expertise on artificial diamond science and technology ranging on a broad range of applications. In particular, the following activities are carried to address the respective fields:
1.i) Quantum Communication: fabrication and characterization of single photon sources based on optically active defects in diamond: search for new efficient color centers, fabrication of integrated optical elements (waveguides, solid immersion lenses), electrically stimulated single photon emitters;
1.ii) Quantum Metrology, Sensing and Imaging: electrical control of nitrogen-vacancy complexes with integrated electrodes, super-resolution imaging, NV-based magnetometry of electrical/magnetic fields.
2) Deterministic single ion material modification: The research group has a long-standing expertise in the development of the ion beam induced charge (IBIC) technique for the functional characterization and modification of electronic materials. 
2.ii/iii) Quantum Metrology, Sensing and Imaging / Quantum Control: improvement of the spatio-temporal resolution of single ion detection and doping of solid state (Si, SiC, Diamond) devices; experimental methods and modeling techniques.
