Short description

Color centers in diamonds are a new photonic material with unique properties (strong, narrow and stable spectral lines, the possibility of convenient targeting with lasers and microwave fields, no toxicity enabling biological applications, etc.). Due to the crystallographic and electronic structure of the diamond, the color centers are not very sensitive to disturbances and have interesting optical and spin properties, e.g. paramagnetism. In particular, microwave spectroscopy of nitrogen-vacancy (NV-) centers allows for precise metrological applications, e.g. measurement of magnetic fields or temperature with micro- and nanometer spatial resolution and high accuracy at the same time.

As part of the internship, it will be possible to test, among others, photonic optical fibers with nanodiamonds, or monocrystalline diamond samples with nitrogen-vacancy color centers. During this research, it will be possible to learn about various optical techniques including fluorescence microscopy, laser and microwave technologies, and magnetic resonance.
