March 8, 2021 / Stephan Hirschmann

Joint project between scientific and industrial partners aims to develop innovative quantum sensors to market readiness.

On 3 February, Federal Minister of Education and Research Anja Karliczek announced the winners of the “Clusters4Future” competition run by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Among the winners is the cluster “Quantum Sensors for the Future” (QSens), in which the universities of Stuttgart and Ulm will work together with the Institute for Microelectronics Stuttgart (IMS CHIPS) as well as a variety of partners from industry. It researches innovative quantum sensors that can achieve a whole new level of sensitivity and spatial resolution. Applications range from personalized medicine and autonomous driving to information technology. The University of Stuttgart scientifically coordinates the cluster by Prof. Jens Anders (Institute of Smart Sensors, spokesperson) and Prof. Jörg Wrachtrup (Institute of Physics 3). Contact persons at the University of Ulm are Prof. Fedor Jelezko and Prof. Joachim Ankerhold.
