The nitrogen vacancy (NV) center in diamond is a model single qubit. It can be optically initialized, coherently controlled and read out. However, controlling multi-qubit NV systems can be challenging as their distribution is generally stochastic. Molecular spin systems, especially N@C60 (atomic nitrogen inside C60), show great promise for quantum technologies: single endohedral nitrogen spins have long coherence times, and the scalability of fullerene networks allows for construction of complex nanoscale devices . Coupling N@C60 and single NV spins at ultra-high vacuum and cryogenic temperatures allowed us to observe the hyperfine splitting of endohedral nitrogen, which we used to implement quantum gate operations. Another possibility is the emergence of discrete time-crystalline order  in our disordered and strongly interacting molecular network.
