Dr Liam Hall | ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science

Dr Liam Hall


Dr Liam Hall is an Associate Investigator with the ARC Centre for Excellence in Exciton Science.  Hailing from a complementary background in quantum and condensed matter physics, Liam brings with him new expertise in the field of quantum sensing, with the potential to enrich research programs at the interface of chemistry and physics. He has spent the last decade working with Professor Lloyd Hollenberg and Dr David Simpson at the University of Melbourne School of Physics to develop diamond-based ‘quantum sensors’ that use the quantum properties of crystallographic defects in diamond as sensors of magnetic resonance signals.

Liam’s DECRA research program addresses the challenge of in situ monitoring of chemical composition in microscopic reaction systems on timescales previously inaccessible to nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) techniques.

Centre Research Themes: 
3. Excitonic Systems for Security, Lighting and Sensing
