Over the last years it has become easier and easier to realize full Quantum mechanical systems in the lab, often without the requirement for ultra-cold and ultra-clean environments. Today there are many proposals for practical QM applications, many of which have been implemented so efficiently that they have reached an industrial level.
At the same time we are at a point where several CTR employees have a QM background. To tap this vast potential of possible future research and funding strategies, our colleague, Thomas Moldaschl, has taken it onto himself to investigate QM applications for sensing technologies. He will present his findings and ideas at the next meeting of the CJC to initiate thought and discussion aiming at the realization of a future CTR Quantum sensor.
