Quantum Diamond Sensors for the Life & Physical Sciences
Date: Thursday, November 8th, 2018
Location: 100 Willamette Hall
Speaker: Ronald Walsworth, Harvard University and Smithsonian Institution
In recent years, optically probed nitrogen–vacancy (NV) quantum defects in diamond have become a leading modality for magnetic, electrical, and temperature sensing at short length scales (nanometers to millimeters) under ambient conditions. This technology has wide-ranging application across the physical and life sciences — from NMR spectroscopy at the scale of individual cells to improved biomedical diagnostics to understanding the formation of the solar system to the search for dark matter. I will provide an overview of quantum diamond sensors and their diverse applications.
Host: Michael Raymer
All attendees are invited to attend a colloquium reception in the Willamette Hall, Paul Olum atrium at 3:40pm.
