The nominating institution University of Ulm on the breakthrough:

NMR is of major importance in biology, chemistry, medicine, and physics, as it gives access to molecular structure and revolutionised medical imaging. But the poor sensitivity of current NMR technology prevents its application to single proteins or the imaging of cellular metabolic processes. Quantum technologies based on atomic scale lattice defects in diamond to achieve nanoscale NMR and a new source for nuclear spin hyperpolarisation are set to overcome these limits.

Ulm University

Martin Plenio was previously a Professor at Imperial College London and joined Ulm University in 2009 as German Alexander von Humboldt Professor. Fedor Jelezko joined Ulm coming from the University of Stuttgart in 2011. At Ulm University they began to collaborate on applications of colour centers in diamond for sensing, hyperpolarisation and medical imaging. Now they are heading the Center for Quantum BioSciences and have co-founded NVision Imaging Technologies in 2016 which aims to commercialise the results of their joint research.
