The 2024 magnonics roadmap

Magnonics aims at using collective spin excitations in magnetically ordered materials for modern information technologies, sensing applications, and advanced computation. We describe how magnetic imaging based on NV centers in diamond offers new opportunities for probing magnons and their interactions on the micro-to-nanoscale.

A Fiber-coupled Scanning Magnetometer with Nitrogen-Vacancy Spins in a Diamond Nanobeam

We demonstrate a scanning-NV sensor consisting of a diamond nanobeam that is optically coupled to a tapered optical fiber. This nanobeam sensor combines a natural scanning-probe geometry with high-efficiency through-fiber optical excitation and readout of the NV spins.
