OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Project concentrates on the development of new photonic materials, components and systems based on nanodiamonds with a focus on nitrogen-vacancy (NV) color centers. It addresses societally significant areas, including highly sensitive cancer cell detection and nano-magnetic tagging/imaging of biological matter. The successful candidates will carry out experimental research in the group led by Dr. Adam Wojciechowski at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow.
 
Research tasks:
  • Studies of spin and magnetic properties of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in nanodiamonds (NDs)
  • Development of new techniques and photonic platforms for measuring and imaging magnetic fields with NDs
