Controllable production of defects during chemical vapor deposition in diamond for engineering nanoscale quantum sensors

Job type: 

The applicant will work on an experimental project involving the production and characterization of single defects in nanodiamonds and single crystal diamond for quantum-enabled sensors. The focus will be to study a specific defect in diamond such as the nitrogen vacancy (NV) centre. The aim will be to improve diamond material for NV spin coherence properties optimization via chemical vapor deposition of diamond and nanodiamonds. The improved material will be used to implement practical magnetic field sensing at the nanoscale.
