The Project is carried out within the TEAM NET programme of the Foundation for Polish Science co-financed by the European Union under the European Regional Development Fund, project POIR.04.04.00-00-1644/18.

The innovative project QUNNA „Nanosensorics and imaging utilizing quantum effects – the synergy of glass and diamond for applications in the new generation of biodiagnostics” has been awarded funding (4.3 mln EUR) in a prestigious #TEAM-NET call organized by the @Foundation for Polish Science (2nd rank on the list). The project will be carried out by a consortium of @University of Warsaw, @Jagiellonian University of Cracow, @Gdańsk University of Technology #PolitechnikaGda and @Institute of Biotechnology and Molecular Medicine (IBMM).

The aim of the project is to apply phenomena of quantum physics for deployment of nanodiamond based technologies into innovative sensors that could be utilized in optical and magnetic research, electronics and medical diagnostics

Within the 4 year-long project, scientists will explore new materials, components and photonic systems displaying specific magnetic and optical properties. The resulting optoelectronic solutions will be introduced to the market in order to advance diagnostics of neurodegenerative diseases and cancer, among others.

The aim of the first edition of the #TEAM-NET program organized by the @Foundation for Polish Science is to enable far-reaching projects carried out by a network of cooperating research teams managed by outstanding scientists. Only 5 out of 39 submitted projects were approved by a panel of distinguished experts.
