Chemically enabled atomistic design of quantum systems Quantum information science encompasses all areas in which quantum
control can impact the world around us. Applications range from
quantum computing, to quantum sensing, to quantum communications.
Within each of these areas the requirements for a "good" quantum unit
differ. Chemistry offers a unique approach to quantum information
science, whereby we can harness the atomistic precision inherent in
synthetic chemistry to create structurally precise, reproducible, and
tunable units. Results in this area will be presented including
creating molecules that are analogues of NV centers which we dub
molecular color centers. These molecules feature optical read-out of
spin information and offer significant promise in the realm of sensing
and potentially communication.
