Its research will focus on quantum sensors based on color centers in diamond and their application in life science, in particular nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy of single biomolecules. The new group is led by Friedemann Reinhard, formerly a senior scientist in the lab of Prof. Dr. Jörg Wrachtrup at the University of Stuttgart. He has been at the forefront of research on diamond quantum sensors for several years, demonstrating among other results the first detection of NMR signals from a 5nm small sample volume. The Emmy Noether Programme supports researchers in achieving independence at an early stage of their scientific careers. Postdocs gain the qualifications required for a university teaching career during a DFG-funded period, usually lasting five years, in which they lead their own independent junior research group.
