Be at the forefront of thinking about the impact of quantum technologies on sensors and metrology !


A 1st of his kind, this workshop aims to explore the use-cases from quantum technologies for sensing and metrology applications. The chosen method is based on a prospective analysis associating quantum technology experts, and technology prescribers in their field (research, industry or market), able to define the relevant performances, needs and ultimately markets.

Six technology areas will be considered, covering both use cases in research (may involve high-tech industry, or academia), where the highest performances are targeted, where the market sizes can be small and the cost may play a secondary role, and use cases for the end-user, where the typical market sizes are very large, the costs have to be low and the device sizes have (often) to be small. These areas are:
  • Quantum enhanced magnetometry
  • Gravimeters
  • Detecting microwave radiations, and applications
  • Detecting radiation at single photon level, and applications
  • Time references
  • Quantum enhanced interferometry, and applications


For each technology area, invited talks given by experts from academia and industry and contributed posters will provide background and framework for discussion. A specific prospective session will foster further exchanges between participants, fueled by brief talks and opened discussions animated by a rapporteur. A summary of each session will be afterwards prepared, and opened to comments in a plenary session.
A written public report, outlining the foreseen use-cases from quantum technologies for sensing and metrology, the stakes and hurdles, will be sent to all participants within 8 weeks after the conference.
