Our research efforts focus on the development of an innovative, multifunctional nanophotonic sensor. The envisioned platform will enable ground-breaking measurements of temperature, pressure, radiation dose and chemical species in a wide variety of environments and applications such as tissue engineering, additive manufacturing, and synchronization of coupled oscillators. Potential postdoctoral candidates with experience in quantum physics (atom-trapping or opto-mechanics), nano-photonics, NV diamond, spectroscopy, clean room fabrication and tissue engineering are encouraged to apply.
