"Quantum microscopy with NV centers in diamonds"

Alex Retzker , The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
[Host: Israel Klich]

In recent years there has been a growing effort to develop a new type of microscopy, which is based on the NV (Nitrogen Vacancy) centers in diamonds. In this colloquium I will overview the latest results in this field and present a few quantum enhanced measurement schemes to image single protons using NV centers in diamond. These schemes will use ideas from quantum coherent control and quantum computing and will mainly target imaging with biological goals.
