Angelo Frangeskou

I'm a postdoctoral researcher working on diamond magnetometry with Gavin Morley, as part of the National Quantum Technologies NQIT hub.

Research Interests

I'm interested in exploiting the quantum properties of the nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centre point defect in diamond for exploring both fundamental physics and technological applications, such as detecting the magnetic field from the heart (magnetocardiography).
