Optical widefield magnetic resonance microscopy with NV-centers in diamond
Prof. Dominik Bucher (TUM, München)

The nitrogen-vacancy (NV) point defect in diamond has emerged as a new class of quantum sensor, enabling the detection of magnetic fields on unprecedented length scales. This technique allows the measurement of magnetic resonance signals on the nanoscale down to a single electronic or nuclear spin. In my talk, I will briefly introduce the fundamentals of diamond-based quantum sensing. In the second part, I will discuss recent developments in my group to use the optical readout of the NV centres to perform magnetic resonance microscopy in real space inside microfluidic structures. The remaining obstacles to this novel microscopy technique and future goals are discussed in the final part.
