Single- and entangled photon sources for quantum metrology (SEQUME)

01.06.2021

 

The EMPIR Project “Single and entangled photon sources for quantum metrology (SEQUME)” is set to start on June 1st, 2021, for a three-year funding period. The aim of SEQUME project is to develop bright entangled photon sources based on different application-oriented platforms and to exploit high-purity single-photon sources to demonstrate the quantum advantage achieved by using these sources for specific measurements. Making single-photon and entangled-photon sources, with the required performance parameters, more readily available, would be significant for the development of quantum technologies and the advancement of quantum-enhanced measurements. At PTB, Stefan Kück, Hristina Georgieva, Franziska Hirt, Marco Lopez, Sebastian Raupach, Andreas Schell, and Pablo Tieben are involved in the project. The project is coordinated by Stefan Kück at PTB and involves 8 NMIs and 10 Universities as partners.
