New imaging and control solutions for quantum and metrology

The “New Imaging and Control Solutions for Quantum and Metrology” (NImSoQ) project aims to design, prototype, and validate a novel, highly sensitive camera capable of reading and controlling qubits in atomic systems. Paired with a dedicated control system, this camera will be a crucial component in facilitating the execution of advanced quantum algorithms, multi-qubit operations, and the implementation of error correction protocols in quantum processors based on cold atom and ion trap architectures. The project will apply the camera in two experiments involving qubits represented as cold atoms, allowing for the validation of design assumptions and the prototype’s functionality.

In the first application, an innovative technique for ultra-low latency qubit state detection will be implemented, utilizing the analysis of strontium atom energy states at both the 3P0 and 3P2 levels. In the second application, the new camera and control system will be validated within a cutting-edge hybrid atomic clock design aimed at significantly enhancing short-term stability. The NImSoQ project will be carried out in close collaboration between electronic engineers and experimental physicists, leveraging the collective efforts of the industrial and research communities.

The project is implemented under the QuantERA European Research Area Network (ERA-NET) Cofund program in partnership with Germany’s Max-Planck Institute of Quantum Optics and the Croatian Institute of Physics in Zagreb Creotech Instruments S.A. serves as the project consortium leader and is responsible for project preparation and the development of the device prototype and control system. Other consortium members are tasked with defining parameters and requirements for the designed solutions and conducting experiments to demonstrate the camera’s functionality.

The project represents a significant milestone on the path to commercializing quantum technologies based on cold atoms and trapped ions.

Project duration: 36 months

Project value (consortium): EUR 1,133,308.24

Funding amount: EUR 355,000.00

The project is partially funded by the National Center for Research and Development under the QuantERA European Research Area Network (ERA-NET) Cofund program.
