Lecture and Excercise on Quantum Sensing

Topics to be discussed:

• Basics of Quantum mechanics
• Definition and basic principles of Quantum sensing (e.g. coherence, measurement protocols, noise, sensitivity)
• Examples of Quantum Sensors and their operation (e.g. Atom Interferometry, Atomic vapor cells, superconducting structures, NV centers in diamond,...)
• Applications of Quantum Sensing (e.g. Gravity-Gradiometer, Measurement of magnetic fields in the brain MEG, Detection of Bio-Magnetismus and Temperature in cells with nanometer resolution, single molecule magnetic resonance,...)
• Advanced Measurement techniques of Quantum Sensors (Using Entanglement, Squeezing, Quantum Memory and Quantum Error correction, Entangled photons,...)
