Quantum Sensors for probing Chemistry

Our research group is interested in the application of quantum sensors in chemistry. For this purpose, we use spin defects in diamonds, which can be used as atom-sized sensors for nuclear magnetic resonance experiments on the smallest length scale (nano-micrometer). The applications of our new technology range from the analysis of single cells in microfluidics to the characterization of surfaces and novel materials in the field of e-conversion.




*** Open position ***

We are currently seeking a highly motivated PhD student or postdoctoral researcher to contribute to a dynamic, multidisciplinary project centered around nitrogen-vacancy quantum sensing. Our objective is to develop an NV-NMR spectrometer with unparalleled sensitivity as part of the newly initiated EU consortium project, QUENCH. The ideal candidate will be enthusiastic about operating at the intersection of applied and quantum physics.

We are looking for candidates with the following skills:

  • Proficiency in solid-state spin quantum sensors
  • Fundamental understanding of noise analysis
  • Basic expertise in microwave engineering
  • Basic coding skills, particularly in Python, Matlab, etc.

If you are interested, please submit a motivation letter outlining your future career goals and interests. Additionally, provide a comprehensive CV that includes a list of your publications, and furnish contact information for three references.
