- Quantum sensing leads to better MRI methods, new atomic clocks to monitor earth and climate change, localization without satellites and many more applications.
- Quantum sensing is the low hanging fruit of quantum technologies: first generation applications already exist and further innovations can reach the market soon.
- Foster an ecosystem of technology developers and end usersto create new applications from TRL 4 and higher.
- Via open calls new components for quantum sensors are developed.
- When operational, public private partnerships will be started to accelerate industrialization.
A testbed for the most promising applications of quantum sensors:
- Sensors based on ultracold atoms used for clocks, network synchronization, soil research and navigation (this links with Photondelta).
- Spin based sensors such as gyroscopes, magnetometers,scanning-probe and nano MRI tools.
- Sensors relevant for the defense and security.
- Mechanical sensors used for measurement of pressure, temperature, voltage, mass and g-forces in navigation.
