"Quantum sensing and imaging" 06.-10.09.2021


Aims, contents and method of the course

Quantum mechanics, which used to be only a fascinating theory and an exciting approach to understand the nature, has now become a powerful tool to build new generations of sensors and detectors. Quantum sensors have a wide range of applications in various areas including communication technology, electromagnetic field sensing and biosensing.
In the upcoming VCQ summer school, we aim to cover the basics of quantum sensing with photonic and solid state systems and our speakers will present state-of-the-art applications of such systems.
After being introduced to the basics, participants will get to know the most recent advancements in quantum sensors and how they outperform classical counterparts.
