Activités / CV

Dr Mary De Feudis is an Associate Professor of Physics at CY Cergy Paris University since 2019. In 2018 she obtained the double title of PhD in Physics and Nanosciences (Università del Salento, Italy) and in Physics and Material Sciences (Université Sorbonne Paris Nord, France).
During her career, she has carried out numerous research activities on diamond materials and their several technological applications such as particle sensors for high-energy and dark-matter physics, as well as power electronic devices. These works have given rise to competences covering different research fields: from the high quality diamond films synthesis, to the graphite and metal electrodes fabrication, up to the integration of the final device on the acquisition board and the study of its performances.
Subsequently, she has started working on the CVD controlled synthesis process of diamond nanoparticles containing color centers (NV, SiV, GeV) useful to develop quantum sensors for very high resolution imaging and high pressure physics.
Currently, she also collaborates in experiments for both implementing t​​​​​​he spin readout of an ensemble of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond by an photoconductive detection technique (PDMR) and exploring how electronic structure determines the two-dimensional materials properties by photoemission analysis (ARPES).
