Abstract: Quantum physical phenomena are usually shielded from our daily interactions with nature and require intricate designs and
experiments to reveal them. It is no wonder that most counterintuitive aspects of quantum physics remained a curiosity-driven exercise in
most part of the 20th century. However, there is a significant paradigm shift in our perception of the technological opportunities arising
from quantum physics. Among many interesting physical systems, diamond offers truly fascinating properties that allow for quantum
physics to be displayed in ambient conditions of everyday life. In this talk, I will highlight how diamond can give us potentially disruptive
technologies ranging from quantum computers to single molecule MRI machines.
