English abstract:
Wepresent an optimized scheme for nanoscale measurements of temperature in a complex
environment using the nitrogen-vacancy center in nanodiamonds (NDs). To this end we combine a
Ramsey measurement for temperature determination with advanced optimal control theory.We
test our new design on single nitrogen-vacancy centers in bulk diamond and fixed NDs, achieving
better readout signal than with common soft or hard microwave control pulses.Wedemonstrate
temperature readout using rotating NDs in an agarose matrix. Our method opens the way to measure
temperature fluctuations in complex biological environment. The used principle is universal and not
restricted to temperature sensing.
