WebFOCUS Report
Project description
During this project we will demonstrate new, disruptive concepts for detection, based on the principles of quantum physics. By using a processing scheme which is based on machine learning algorithms, we will show how ultrasensitive detection of magnetic field can be achieved with a device consisting of a superconducting circuit. Furthermore, we will realize detection of time-dependent electromagnetic fields, including that of microwave radiation at the level of a single photon. Our results have applications in magnetic bran imaging and in high-energy physics (axion detection).
