Integrated Quantum Sensors

Project description

FET Open

The central aim of iSense is to deliver breakthrough enabling technologies and knowledge to push long-anticipated sensor and quantum ICT applications using cold atoms to a broadly accessible and commercially exploitable level.
To achieve this goal, iSense is structured in two highly interlinked and temporally overlapping phases: In the phase 1 iSense will create a science and technology platform introducing novel integrated optics concepts for cold atom production and interrogation. Phase 2 will pursue the establishment of commercial cold atom devices for a wide variety of integrated quantum sensors as well as in information and communication technologies (ICT). Starting with the realization of an integrated high-precision gravity sensor and strong technology dissemination activities this phase will lay the foundations for applications-specific broadening and wide use of the technol-ogy platform beyond the extension of this project.
The long term vision is a modular, scalable and portable quantum technology family based on cold atoms, adaptable to a wide variety of applications in diverse working envi-ronments. Potential applications include fundamental physics tests, quantum ICT devices, satel-lite geodesy, oil / mineral prospecting and communication network timing.
