Color centers in diamond have become a workhorse in the field of quantum sensing, broadly defined as the use of qubit systems to measure environmental parameters. In our lab, we harness the optical and spin properties of diamond color centers to image nanoscale physical, chemical, and biological phenomena under a wide range of conditions. I will discuss ongoing progress in developing a microfluidic quantum sensing platform for nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy of picoliter fluid analytes. I will discuss the use of microstructured magnetic materials which concentrate magnetic flux (in analogy to optical elements) to improve the magnetic field sensitivity of diamond quantum sensors. I will also discuss recent results using color centers in diamond for super-resolution microscopy.
