New research article in Nature Physics

Dr Alex Wood, Professor Robert Scholten are the authors of a new article, ‘Magnetic pseudo-fields in a rotating electron–nuclear spin system’ published in Nature Physics on 7 August. They used quantum sensors, nitrogen–vacancy (NV) centres, in a rapidly rotating diamond to detect pseudo-fields in the rotating frame to explore precession effects via quantum sensing. This defines a new approach to quantum control using rotationally induced nuclear spin-selective magnetic fields and provides an integral step towards realizing precision rotation sensing and quantum spin gyroscopes. The article can be linked from here. An interview with Dr Wood and A/Prof Andy Martin is available at the University of Melbourne Pursuit page.
