We have developed a novel quantum sensor-memory architecture, which benefits from the high magnetic field sensitivity of the sensor and the long coherent storage lifetime of the memory. It enables faster sensing and higher spectral selectivity when coherently coupling to other qubits.
Science and teaching at the institute comprises solid state quantum optics and spintronics with applications in modern microscopy and metrology applications in e.g. biophysics. Common to all experimental approaches is the use of photons as central tool. Besides set-ups in the field of optics and spin control facilities at the institute comprise synthesis, implantation and structuring of carbon materials, protein purification and cell culturing.
