Nitrogen-vacancy (NV) center is one of the most promising systems for quantum information processing.

NV centers are also excellent sensors for detecting weak signals. In this talk, I will first discuss the microscopic decoherence mechanisms of NV center electron spins. Based on the decoherence mechanisms, I will talk about recent progress on single-molecule nuclear magnetic resonance using NV centers and other applications of NV centers in sensing weak signals.
