10:30 am  Title:  Atomic physics in a semiconductor vacuum: Quantum optics and nanoscale sensing in diamond
 Presenter:  Victor Acosta, Researcher, Google. Acosta is a research scientist at Google [x]. Previously he was a postdoc in Charles Santori and Ray Beausoleil's group at HP Labs, where he led efforts to integrate NV centers into photonic circuits for quantum computing and sensing. Victor did his PhD work in Dmitry Budker's AMO group in the UC Berkeley Physics dept, graduating in 2011. There he studied the basic physics underlying optical sensors based on alkali vapor cells as well as diamond NV centers. Victor has co-authored more than 30 peer-reviewed journal articles, including 7 in Physical Review Letters, and has delivered more than 20 invited talks at international conferences and academic seminars.
