Metrology is a field of science that searches the most precise and efficient methods of measurements. For example, precise time and location measurements mean more accurate GPS-based localization methods, whereas better spectral resolution means easier identification of substance’s chemical composition.
Quantum metrology is the area of research that uses ‘counterintuitive’ behavior of quantum objects in order to improve the resolution of measurements, in comparison to classical methods. The project ‘Spectral-Temporal Metrology with Tailored Quantum Measurements’ (STORMYTUNE), financed by the European Commission, will develop quantum metrology tools to measure time and frequency.
Objectives of the project:
-Developing theoretical framework which will help to precisely specify benefits and applicability scope for ‘frequency-time’ quantum metrology, proposing optimal practical solutions at the same time;
-creating operational prototypes, applicable in spectroscopy for instance.
STORMYTUNE consortium comprises world-class research groups in the field of quantum optics and industrial partner – world leader in laser field.
Project will be implemented form 2020 to 2023.
Dr hab. Łukasz Rudnicki prof. UG from the International Center for Theory of Quantum Technology is project manager on the University side.
