Our group is interested in the physics of NV colour centres in diamond, from its production to its applications with a special focus on sensing.
NV colour centre is a point defect in diamond with unique physical properties at room temperature. It combines very stable photoluminescence to attractive spin properties, making a perfect system for quantum information, bio-imaging, and sensing.
Our group has been studying NV centre in diamond for a decade from its photophysics to material science questions through its applications. Recently we especially focused on the following topics :
These activities are developed in close collaboration with the Biophotonics group at Laboratoire Aimé Cotton and Vincent Jacques at the Quantum Imaging group (Laboratoire Charles Coulomb) in Montpellier.
