About

Raffi Budakian is a physicist whose research focuses on developing ultra-sensitive spin detection techniques for single spin imaging and quantum readout.

Current areas of research include (i) design and fabrication of micro-machined silicon cantilevers for sub-attonewton force detection, (ii) development of spin detection/manipulation protocols that enable force detection at the thermal limit, (iii) imaging single dopants and defects in semiconductors, (iv) spin control via active feedback, and (v) combining MRFM with electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) for high sensitivity nuclear spin detection.
