As relentless innovators, we always have an eye on the future. In a near future, diamond will allow all-optical data interconnections, to increase Internet capabilities while cutting down dramatically on energy consumption. In the longer term, quantum computation and quantum cryptography are expected both to dramatically increase computational power, and to allow for absolutely secured communication. A large part of computers as we know will be progressively replaced by their quantum-powered counterparts. The first quantum computers have already been built, though have too few bits to be pertinent. Color centers (atoms other than carbon trapped in diamond) make them ideal for the realization of quantum computation, as the physical support of quantum information (the spin of electrons), has a very long lifetime. LakeDiamond is investing in R&D in this field, in partnership with EPFL, in order to harness this opportunity.
