I was on the Wikipedia page for Nitrogen-Vacancy Center and in the first paragraph the following statement is made:

An individual N-V center can be viewed as a basic unit of a quantum computer, and it has potential applications in novel, more efficient fields of electronics and computational science including quantum cryptography, spintronics and masers.

There is no source provided for this statement, and the references portion of the page doesn't seem to cite a paper that would provide this information.

Is this statement true? If so how is true?

  • $\begingroup$ An NV center is a single photon source. Proceed from there... $\endgroup$ – Jon Custer May 21 at 22:26
