Optoelectronics of color centers in diamond and silicon carbide

In spite of the significant progress in the development of quantum technologies in the past decade, the lack of bright and efficient true single-photon sources that can operate outside of a research laboratory impedes the implementation of many practical quantum information devices. Today, сolor centers in diamond, silicon carbide, and related semiconductors are considered to be the most promising candidates for the role of single-photon sources capable of operating at room temperature. However, their electrical pumping, strictly required from a practical point of view, was poorly studied. In this talk, I will present new theoretical approaches, models, methods, and newly discovered effects that allow not only to explain and predict experimental results but also to design ultra-bright single-photon sources for quantum applications.
