Abstract

The nitrogen–vacancy (NV) quantum defect in diamond is a leading modality for magnetic, electrical, temperature, and force sensing with high spatial resolution and wide field-of-view under ambient conditions. This technology has diverse applications across the physical and life sciences — from probing magnetic materials to biomedical diagnostics to aiding in the search for particle dark matter.  I will provide an overview of quantum diamond sensors and their diverse applications.

Bio:  Ronald Walsworth is Minta Martin Professor of Physics and of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland (UMD).  He is also the Founding Director of the Quantum Technology Center (QTC) at UMD, which focuses on the development and translational applications of quantum science, as well as education of the quantum technology workforce.
