Solid-state quantum systems have emerged as promising sensing platforms. In particular, the spin properties of nitrogen vacancy (NV) color centers in diamond make them outstanding sensors of magnetic fields, electric fields, and temperature under ambient conditions. This thesis focuses on spin-based sensing using multimode diamond waveguide structures to efficiently use large ensembles of NV centers (> 10¹⁰). Temperature-stabilized precision magnetometry, thermometry, and electrometry are discussed. In addition, the precision characterization of the NV ground state structure under a transverse magnetic field and the use of NV-diamond for spin-based clocks are reported.
