Nature Communications publishes an article in which Jianming, Fedor and Martin propose a hybrid sensor composed of a colour centre in diamond which is covered by a piezomagnetic material. The resulting device promises a sensitivity for pressure and force that is three orders of magnitude increased compared to a colour centre in diamond. The very same design may also lead to the same enhancement for electron spin-vibrational coupling thus providing new routes to the design of nanomechanical systems. You can read the complete story in Nature Communications 5, 4065 (2014).
