A team of researchers led by Assistant Professor Victor Acosta recently published a new paper in the journal Science Advances detailing their work in developing a quantum sensor for determining the chemical composition of trace quantities of samples.

The paper is titled Two-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy with a microfluidic diamond quantum sensor. The technology could have a big impact on numerous scientific fields, ranging from analytic chemistry to single-cell biology.

The team also includes Physics grad students Nazanin Mosavian and Nathaniel Ristoff.
