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

"We have used the QuED setup here at Columbia University for remote instruction in our physics majors lab. Students are extremely excited using the setup and it motivates them to study the foundations of quantum entanglement in great depth. I have rarely seen students putting that much effort into a lab class as with this setup! It really makes entanglement tangible. At the same time it equips them with know-how that is essential in these times of emerging quantum technologies."
– Sebastian Will, Columbia University
"There is a new generation of quantum books now, and I think that they get to the heart of quantum mechanics in a quicker more accessible way all based on the experiments. Exciting that qutools is leading the way on the experiment side that students and most universities can do. Together you are revolutionizing the way quantum is taught, experienced, and understood. In turn it will lead to next generation quantum technologies and engineering and hopefully a deeper insight to what quantum is really telling us. I am pleased and lucky to have access to both and push for others to see these new ways to teach – I have as much fun as my students do."
– Dr. Edward F. Deveney, Bridgewater State University
