Brief description This project aims to create a new class of room-temperature ultra-sensitive magnetometers based on laser threshold magnetometry. By using nitrogen-vacancy colour centres in diamond, these magnetometers will demonstrate at least femto-Tesla per root Hertz sensitivity, and could replace SQUID magnetometers. This project aims to develop its theoretical concept into a platform for advanced sensing with applications in magneto-encephalography, nerve sensing, MRI imaging, mining and aircraft guidance systems.
