Qubits in diamond: solid state quantum registers and nanoscale sensors

Recently, atom-like impurities in diamond (colour centers) have emerged as an exceptional system for quantum physics in solid state. In this talk I will discuss recent developments transforming quantum control tools into quantum technologies based on single colour centers. Specially, realization of quantum optical interface between spins and photons and scalable quantum registers in diamond will be presented. New applications of diamond qubits involving nanoscale magnetic resonance and force measurements will be shown. I will discuss single spin NMR paving the way to ultrasensitive MRI and structure determination of single biomolecules. The detection of proteins using nanodiamond sensors will be presented. I will also highlight future directions of research including combination of quantum error correction and sensing protocols and quantum enabled sensing and imaging in living cells.
