Towards paramagnetic-center-enabled Quantum Spintronics
We investigate the dynamics of charge ionization, diffusion, and trapping between paramagnetic centers in diamond.
High-density data storage in diamond
We articulate NV center spin and charge control as a route to sub-diffraction optical data storage in dense NV center ensembles.
NV-center-assisted nanoscale metrology
Combining optically-detected magnetic resonance and atomic force microscopy we are developing new forms of spin-assisted sensing with nanoscale resolution.
Nanoscale nuclear magnetic resonance
Using near-surface NV centers we probe nanoscale ensembles of nuclear spins in organic systems, a step toward nm-resolved MRI.
Optical hyperpolarization of fluids
We are exploring alternate strategies to transfer polarization from optically-pumped paramagnetic centers to fluids brought in contact with the host crystal surface.
Single cell thermometry via nanodiamonds
Does cancer alter a cell’s temperature? Using nanodiamond-hosted NV centers we are trying to answer the question.
