Welcome! We are a new lab that uses spins in diamond to explore condensed-matter systems, ranging from magnets to quantum devices.

The magnetic fields generated by spins and currents provide a unique window into condensed-matter physics. We study these fields at the nanoscale using the excellent sensitivity and broad temperature operability of the nitrogen-vacancy (NV) sensor spin in diamond. Please see this recent review article in Nature Reviews Materials for background!

The van der Sar Lab is part of the Department of Quantum Nanoscience at TU Delft.


We currently have an open PhD and postdoc position on exploring spin waves with NV centers. See Openings.
