A database for quantum defects for accelerated quantum defect exploration and discovery.
What is Quantum Defect Genome?
Point defects in semiconductor hosts have a wide range of beneficial as well as detrimental effects. The Quantum Defect Genome targets the dissemination of defect data computed using first principles computations in several hosts. The goal is to build a “materials genome” or Materials Project for defects. Our current target application is point defects/color centers for quantum information science sometimes called quantum defects. Formation energy, structure and opto-electronic properties are provided for a vast range of point defects. We currently provide data in silicon and on monolayer WS2. The Quantum Defect Genome involves partners from Dartmouth, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and University of California Berkeley. It is supported by the Department of Energy and the Basic Energy Science Office.
