  • Project partner in “Quantum microscopy: A new tool for future technologies”

Project leader: Dr T. van der Sar (Delft University of Technology) Participating institutions: TNO Delft, Leiden University, Applied Nanolayers BV, Leiden Spin Imaging BV. Quantum technology has the potential to transform global industries and markets. It can make electrons and flows in quantum systems visible. This consortium is working with partners from industry on a quantum microscope that will use a diamond magnetic-field sensor to image the behaviour of electrons on the nanoscale, at both near absolute zero and room temperature.
