Ultracoherent force sensors

Project description

En route to tiny, ultra-coherent, soft force sensors

The EU-funded ULTRAFORS project plans to develop a novel type of ‘soft-clamped’ mechanical resonator. With unprecedented quality factors and low force noise, these resonators should provide a valuable platform for use in quantum technologies, materials science and nanomedicine. Project activities will mainly focus on developing designs optimised for force sensors and stabilising the nanofabrication process to improve production reliability and cost. Furthermore, researchers will develop a business case for ultra-coherent force sensors that will lay the foundations for launching a start-up in the field.
