Quantum Sensing

Thanks to the precise manipulation possibilities of atomic ensembles by means of the atom-light interaction, highly accurate measurements of a wide range of quantities can be carried out with cold or quantum-degenerate gases. This enables a fascinating variety of experiments, which give us deep insights into quantum mechanics. Based on these findings, we are researching optical atomic clocks and quantum-limited sensors for terrestrial and space-based applications for tests of fundamental theories of modern physics.
