Potential of Diamond Quantum Sensors

Seminar Room E48 - Lab 4

OIST Center for Quantum Technologies Colloquium: Potential of Diamond Quantum Sensors

Prof. Mutsuko Hatano, Professor, Tokyo Institute of Technology

Toward On-Chip Spin Magnetomechanics with Levitated Systems


Levitated quantum systems can be used to build ultra-precise sensors for use in technology but also to search for new fundamental types of forces and dark matter. In this seminar PhD student Trisha Madhavan from Mikhail Lukin's Nanomechanics subgroup at Harvard University will talk about her work on levitating tiny magnets and coupling them to NV defects in diamond.

Main Campus, Seminar Room B250 (Center Building)

OIST Workshop | Main organizer: Jason Twamley (Quantum Machines) | Website | OIST members are welcome to attend all scientific sessions.

Levitodynamics of optically active nanocrystals


Did you know that for some very special materials, when you shine light on them they will cool down? Optical refridgeration is not a very well known phenomena but it can cool materials down to temperatures below 100K! In this talk we will discuss the optical trapping of nanoparticles AND the bulk cooling of them using optical means.

Generation of entanglement from mechanical rotations

Lab 4 E01

Generation of entanglement from mechanical rotations. Is it possible to use the movement of massive objects to generate quantum entanglement? If this proves to be possible - what consequences would it have for our understanding regarding quantum mechanics and how it relates to space and time? Come to this talk by thoeretician Dr Toros, from Scotland - to hear how he proposes to do it and what might be the consequences!
