Optomechanical interface between telecom photons and spin quantum memory

Nature Physics, Published online: 14 October 2021; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01364-3Quantum networks require a connection between quantum memories and optical links, which often operate in different frequency ranges. An optomechanical device exploiting the strain dependence of a colour-centre spin provides such a spin–optics interface at room temperature.

Witnessing quantum correlations in a nuclear ensemble via an electron spin qubit

Nature Physics, Published online: 14 October 2021; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01344-7Atoms in a semiconductor can have non-zero nuclear spins, creating a large ensemble with many quantum degrees of freedom. An electron spin coupled to the nuclei of a semiconductor quantum dot can witness the creation of entanglement within the ensemble.

Hot black ices

Nature Physics, Published online: 14 October 2021; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01358-1At high pressure and temperature, water forms two crystalline phases, known as hot ‘black’ ices due to their partial opaqueness. A detailed characterization of these phases may explain magnetic field formation in giant icy planets like Neptune.

Nature Physics, Published online: 14 October 2021; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01382-1Molecular spin qubits that can be controlled electrically are typically susceptible to decoherence. Holmium molecular spins provide a solution by combining robust coherence with strong spin–electric coupling.

Spins strain to see the light

Nature Physics, Published online: 14 October 2021; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01365-2Integrating quantum technology with existing telecom infrastructure is hampered by a mismatch in operating frequencies. An optomechanical resonator now offers a strain-mediated spin–photon interface for long-distance quantum networks.

Structure and properties of two superionic ice phases

Nature Physics, Published online: 14 October 2021; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01351-8Measurements of the phase diagram of water reveal first-order phase transitions to face- and body-centred cubic superionic ice phases. The former is suggested to be present in the interior of ice giant planets.

Quantum coherent spin–electric control in a molecular nanomagnet at clock transitions

Nature Physics, Published online: 14 October 2021; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01355-4Through chemical design, the spins in molecular nanomagnets may be used as electrically tunable qubits. Electrical control of molecular distortion enables manipulation of the quantum spin state while suppressing decoherence from magnetic fields.
