Courtesy of TRUMPF.TRUMPF subsidiary Q.ANT and sensor specialist SICK signed a collaboration agreement for the development of industrial quantum sensors. The signing was preceded by a successful demonstration of what the companies say is the first quantum optical sensor for serial production.

Under the agreement, SICK will be responsible for application development and sale of the product; Q.ANT is to take on production. The first use of the quantum sensors is planned for 2021.

Glossary
quantum
The term quantum refers to the fundamental unit or discrete amount of a physical quantity involved in interactions at the atomic and subatomic scales. It originates from quantum theory, a branch of physics that emerged in the early 20th century to explain phenomena observed on very small scales, where classical physics fails to provide accurate explanations. In the context of quantum theory, several key concepts are associated with the term quantum: Quantum mechanics: This is the branch of...
