Objective

This project seeks to establish a radically new technology platform for experiments in macroscopic quantum physics and for
quantum enabled sensing. We exploit magnetic coupling between superconducting quantum circuits and superconducting
mechanical resonators – both levitated and suspended – to enter a hitherto inaccessible parameter regime of both
unprecedented force sensitivity and full quantum control of massive, macroscopic objects. Our approach combines, in a new
way, techniques from different research areas (magnetic levitation, superconducting circuits, atom-chip technology, cavity
optomechanics and quantum optics) and is set up as a joint collaborative effort between expert European teams from
academia and industry. Our technology will enable quantum experiments of otherwise unachievable coherence times and
masses, which has immediate implications for testing fundamental physical questions, for performing hybrid quantum
information processing and, on the applied side, for ultrasensitive force sensing applications.
