Quantum sensors on the road to industrial applications

Thierry Debuisschert, Coordinator of AMADEUS (TRT), attended the 2023 European Quantum Technologies Conference (EQTC) taking place at the Convention Center in Hannover, Germany from October 16-20, 2023.
On October 17th, he participated to the round table of the High-level Panel, discussing about European Leadership in Quantum Technologies. It is a moderated panel featuring high-level representatives of the European Commission, the European Quantum Flagship, Quantum Industry Consortium (QuIC), Quantum Coordination Board (QCB) and Quantum Community Network (QCN). The panel was made of :
  • Dr. Gustav Kalbe, Acting Director ” Digital Excellence and Science Infrastructure”, European Commission
  • Prof. Jürgen Mlynek, Chair of the Strategic Advisory Board, European Quantum Flagship
  • Laure Le Bars, President, Quantum Industry Consortium (QuIC)
  • Dr. Thierry Debuisschert, Chair, Quantum Coordination Board (QCB)
  • Moderator: Prof. Tommaso Calarco, Chair, Quantum Community Network (QCN)
 

The following day, on October 18th, Thierry Debuisschert gave a presentation about quantum sensing. Quantum sensing covers a wide range of applications, including medical diagnostics, communications or positioning, navigation and timing. Quantum sensors exploit changes in the properties of single quantum objects, when coupled to an external system, to improve the sensitivity and accuracy of measurement of physical quantities. There are two main categories of quantum sensors: gas sensors and solid-state sensors. Prototypes of these sensors have been developed as part of the ramp-up phase of the Quantum Flagship program. In the main phase, several projects are continuing this development, with the aim of bringing these sensors closer to applications. These include a new generation of gravimeters based on cold atoms, optical atomic clocks with enhanced performance. AMADEUS is developing the use of sensors based on color centers in diamond for medical diagnostics, industrial control or telecommunications. It also aims at using these sensors in harsh environments or for space applications. This development is supported by a joint effort with European standardization bodies and metrology institutes to define standards in order to strengthen the position of European industry.
