This may be accomplished with photonic or solid-state technologies. Quantum sensors utilize quantum technologies or quantum states to measure physical quantities. These sensors are built on the concept of atomic superposition, granting them an exceptional degree of sensitivity. They are utilized in some of the most important applications, including space navigation as well as gravity measurements.

The atomic characteristics of quantum sensors remain fixed as they monitor relative environmental changes and hence, they do not have drift or noise concerns like traditional sensors. Quantum sensors are typically 10 times more sensitive to their surroundings than traditional sensors, making them incredibly accurate. Crucial applications, like automotive & transportation, military & defense, and healthcare are significantly utilizing quantum sensors nowadays.

The incorporation of NV-based ensemble quantum sensors in commercial chip designs is a fascinating step towards transforming quantum sensor generation into a versatile array of sensor goods by a number of industrial segments functioning in end consumer verticals throughout the sector.
