Room-temperature quantum oscillations in diamond crystals UCSB|CNSI|Kavli TU Delft|Ames DOE In Science Express, Science and concurrent UCSB press release, Hanson, Awschalom et al. report on striking experimental observations of quantum oscillations in diamond crystals at room temperature. "We were stunned by these unexpected experimental results, and extremely excited by the ability to control and monitor single quantum states, especially at room temperature," said David Awshalom. "To our surprise, when looking at longer times, the oscillations disappeared, then re-appeared. At first it looked like an artifact, but repeated measurements reproduced this behavior," said co-author Ronald Hanson, a postdoctoral student at UCSB during this period who is now a professor at Kavli Institute of Nanoscience Delft, Delft University of Technology, in the Netherlands.
