Abstract

The nitrogen-vacancy center in diamond has been explored extensively as a light-matter interface for quantum information applications, however it is limited by low coherent photon emission and spectral instability. Here, we present a promising interface based on an alternate defect with superior optical properties (the germanium-vacancy) coupled to a finesse 11,000 fiber cavity, resulting in a 31+12−15 -fold increase in the spectral density of emission. This work sets the stage for cryogenic experiments, where we predict a factor of 20+7−10 increase in the spontaneous emission rate.
