New Frontier for Quantum Sensing

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Devices that harness the counterintuitive features of quantum mechanics could signal the start of a second quantum revolution.


Quantum physics is a peculiar field. In the subatomic domain, the usual physical laws no longer apply. Instead, nonintuitive behaviors reign and new laws govern. A case in point is the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, which tells us that it is not possible to know both the exact position and the exact momentum of an object at any one time. Quantum mechanics ­— an idea that started with Planck, Einstein and Heisenberg more than 100 years ago — gave us a better understanding of
