The project QUNNA „ QUantum-effect-based Nanosensing and imaging: Novel glass-diamond photonic approach for the next generation biodiagnostic Applications” has been awarded 4.3 mln EUR funding in the prestigious TEAM-NET call organized by the Foundation for Polish Science (2nd rank on the list). The project is carried out by the consortium of University of Warsaw, Jagiellonian University of Cracow, Gdańsk University of Technology 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.
