This project is motivated by the highly interesting and novel results of recent work on NV- centres in diamond carried out by the members of DIADEMS and others worldwide. DIADEMS brings together European leaders of NV- centre research who are pioneers in this research area. This project is expected to strengthen further Europe’s leading position
The main objectives of the DIADEMS project are to design and build NV- based scanning probe magnetometer with high sensitivity (<10nT/Hz1/2) and spatial resolution (<10 nm) for electron and nuclear spin imaging at ambient and cryogenic (4K) temperatures:
- Data storage: calibration and optimization of write/read magnetic heads;
- Biomedical: wide-field imaging of neuronal networks and magnetic resonance imaging of single spins;
- Spintronics: imaging of electron spin density in graphene and carbon nanotubes.
