Atom-like defects in semiconductors are promising systems for spin-based quantum information applications. With its advanced growth and device technologies, Silicon carbide (SiC) is an eligible host for such defects, e.g. silicon vacancies (VSi). This spin-3/2 system can be addressed and manipulated [1] and could serve as a room temperature source for single photons [2] or a room temperature maser amplifier [3]. With these applications in mind, one main challenge is to thoroughly create, isolate, and control the defects. Here, we report defect engineering of VSi defects in SiC by means of neutron irradiation. Our photoluminescence measurements show that the defect density is well controllable via the irradiation dose. The irradiation flux has been varied over 10 orders of magnitude, from 108 to 1018 neutrons/cm2. Two specific cases are of interest. The generation of the maximum VSi concentration possible without destroying the crystal structure is required for the implementation of maser amplifiers. On the other hand, the creation of very few, isolated defects is crucial for the realization of single photon sources. [1] Riedel et al.: Phys. Rev.
