quNV Quantum Sensing by Diamond Magnetometer Based on NV Centers

qutools quNV Quantum Sensing by Diamond Magnetometer Based on NV Centers

This quNV diamond magnetometer will introduce students to the concepts of quantum sensing. The design of the quNV demonstrates quantum sensing in a simple and user-friendly system for student lab courses at colleges and universities.

The core of the quNV is a HPHT diamond with a nitrogen-vacancy (NV) center. The NV center can be excited by light in the green spectrum. The excited state decays back to the ground state either directly or via an intermediate shelving state with different fluorescence intensity. The decay path depends on the electron spin of the NV center. Thus, the electron spin can be read out optically.

The electron spin can be manipulated further by microwave radiation. By applying magnetic and electric fields, the energy levels of the spins can be shifted. Using these methods, a vast number of experiments and measurement applications are possible.

Features

  • Probe: HPHT Diamond
  • Excitation: 520 nm CW Diode Laser
  • Microwave: 4 GHz RF Sweep Generator
  • Detection: Photodiode, Control & Read-Out Unit
