Quantum Sensing with Quantum Correlated Systems

International Workshop
25 - 29 September 2017

Quantum sensing, along with quantum metrology and quantum communications, is one of the pillars of the emerging new technologies in this century. In this workshop we aim at moving from the paradigm of using isolated single quantum systems as sensors to devices formed by many-body quantum correlated systems and "synthetic quantum materials" that exploit entanglement to achieve higher resolution in the determination of an unknown parameter.

Topics include

  • Quantum Sensing
  • Quantum Entanglement
  • Quantum Information
  • Synthetic Quantum Materials
  • Ultracold Quantum Gases
  • Strongly Correlated Systems
  • Many-Body Physics
  • Quantum Metrology
  • Quantum Communication
  • Quantum Enhanced Parameter Estimation
  • Topological Systems
