ASTERIQS and macQsimal projects are organizing the Basel Quantum Metrology and Sensing Conference 2020

Published on December 12th, 2019

Organized in the framework of the Quantum Flagship projects ASTERIQS and macQsimal, the Basel Quantum Metrology and Sensing Conference 2020 (BQMS-2020) will take place on 12-14 February 2020 to highlight the state of the art and most recent advances in quantum sensing and quantum metrology with atomic and solid-state spin systems.

The conference aims to gather key global players in these fields and focus on both fundamental research and engineering relevant to these highly active fields of quantum technology development. It will be hosted at the University of Basel, Switzerland, an institution known for its long tradition in quantum technologies and nanoscience research.

BQMS-2020 will feature invited talks given by world-leading experts from Europe and overseas as well as contributed talks and posters selected from the submitted abstracts, all in a single, thematically focused session. The conference is open to all researchers in the field. It is organized in the framework of the ASTERIQS and macQsimal projects of the EU Quantum Technologies Flagship with the goal to be a forum for the entire community.

Both projects that are coordinating the event are two of the four projects that have been selected within the Sensing and Metrology Application area of the Quantum Flagship.

ASTERIQS aims to develop applications based on the NV- centre in diamond that go outside of the laboratory and bring solutions to societal and economical needs where no solution exists yet.

MacQsimal will design, develop, miniaturise and integrate advanced quantum-enabled sensors with outstanding sensitivity, to measure physical observables in five key areas: magnetic fields, time, rotation, electro-magnetic radiation and gas concentration.

You will find all the relevant information on the conference website and enclosed the flyer.

  • Plug and play continuous variable quantum key distribution for metropolitan networks

    The study entitled "Plug and play continuous variable quantum key distribution for metropolitan networks", published by partners of the CiViQ in Optics Express, has been highlighted as an Editor's Pick. Editor's Picks serve to highlight articles with excellent scientific quality and are representative of the work taking place in a specific field.

  • Qombs makes major advances in high performance quantum cascade laser frequency combs

    QOMBS project partner Alpes Lasers has demonstrated high-performance quantum cascade laser frequency combs at λ ∼ 6 μm for the first time. This new wavelength is important because it corresponds to the amide I vibration band of proteins, opening up numerous new biological and medical applications.

  • New software brings quantum network design to users around the world

    NetSquid, a specialized simulator for quantum networks has been made freely available for non-commercial users. In development by QuTech since 2017, the software is the first of its kind to model timing effects using discrete events. NetSquid allows researchers around the world to accurately predict the performance of quantum networks and modular quantum computing systems. Such simulations are essential to design scalable quantum systems and exploit them for radically new types of computation and communication technologies.
