2019 / 06 / 12 - Tutorial on quantum sensing

Have a look at our new tutorial on quantum sensing, which is based on a lecture held at the 204th Fermi school in Varenna in July 2018


2019 / 01 / 24 - Reinventing the scanning probe microscope 

Many modern scanning probes are devices with a planar surface. Examples are nano-fabricated superconducting SQUID sensors or Nitrogen-Vacancy centers under the surface of a bulk diamond crystal. We have invented a new kind of scanning probe microscope that can employ arbitrary planar sensors, not only sharp tips.

2017 / 10 / 18 - Quantum sensing of GHz frequency signals
[Reinhard 2] Quantum sensors can detect signals at much higher frequencies than previously thought. This is a finding we report in Nature Communications this week. Our scheme could lead to a new generation of quantum devices, such as detectors for single microwave photons.
Nature Communications 8, 964 (2017)

2017 / 09 / 27 - Research prize for Wi-Fi holography
[Reinhard 3] Our holographic imaging technique for wireless radiation has been awarded the Research and Solutions award of the trade fair RFID and Wireless IoT Tomorrow. Congratulations to everyone involved and thanks to the RFID industry for supporting our work in this way!

2017 / 07 / 25 - Review on Quantum Sensing in Rev. Mod. Phys.
[Reinhard 4] We have teamed up with the labs of Christian Degen (ETH) and Paola Cappellaro (MIT) to write a review article on our field of research, aiming to provide a starting point for beginners and a reference for experts.
