Quantum Diamond Sensors for the Life & Physical Sciences

Date:  Thursday, November 8th, 2018

Time: 4:00pm

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.
