Quantum Sensing and Metrology

Home » Research » Quantum Sensing and Metrology

Quantum states are highly sensitive to their environment, making them ideal sensors. Building a useful quantum sensor involves creating, manipulating and reading out quantum states, in carefully chosen ways that maximize sensitivity to the properties of interest and minimize sensitivity to disturbances.  Researchers in the quantum collaborative work on the full spectrum of quantum sensing problems: designing new sensor technology, improving quantum state preparation and lifetime, designing algorithms to improve sensing performance and identifying platforms for future quantum systems.
