      Enhancing the Quantum Sensing Capabilities of Diamond

      Shooting electrons at diamonds can introduce quantum sensors into them

       

      Nov. 22, 2017 — Researchers discovered that dense ensembles of quantum spins can be created in a diamond with high resolution using electron microscopes, paving the way for enhanced sensors and resources for quantum technologies.

      Diamonds are made of carbon atoms in a crystalline structure, but if a carbon atom is replaced with another type of atom, this will result in a lattice defect. One such defect is the Nitrogen-Vacancy (NV), where one carbon atom is replaced by a nitrogen atom, and its neighbor is missing (an empty space remains in ...
