His research is focused on the development of quantum sensors, broadly defined as the use of qubit systems to measure environmental parameters.  His lab uses color centers in diamond as quantum sensors to study nanoscale magnetic phenomena in physical, chemical, and biological systems. They are also developing nanophotonic surfaces for applications ranging from few-photon optical logic to ultra-thin microscopes.  CQuIC welcomes Professor Acosta as an associate and looks forward to working together on mutual projects.
