The Rare-Earth Materials Optimisation Program, led by Dr Rose Ahlefeldt at the Australian National University, was created by the Centre in 2021 to provide the fundamental material investigations to support the development of quantum information devices based on rare-earth optical centres. These devices typically use rare earth ions with complicated optical and spin structure in low symmetry sites, resulting in complex optical properties not well characterised to date.
The program focuses on building the experimental and theoretical understanding of the optical and spin properties of these complex optical centres. This understanding will be use to optimise the performance of current quantum information devices and guide the development of new applications.
