Location: 818 Conference Room

Title: Quantum sensing

Speaker:Dr Utkarsh Mishra


“Quantum sensing” describes the use of a quantum system, quantum properties, or quantum phenomena to perform a measurement of a physical quantity. Historical examples of quantum sensors include magnetometers based on superconducting quantum interference devices and atomic vapors or atomic clocks. More recently, quantum sensing has become a distinct and rapidly growing branch of research within the area of quantum science and technology, with the most common platforms being spin qubits, trapped ions, and flux qubits. The field is expected to provide new opportunities—especially with regard to high sensitivity and precision—in applied physics and other areas of science. This review provides an introduction to the basic principles, methods, and concepts of quantum sensing from the viewpoint of the interested experimentalist.

Dr Utkarsh Mishra works on non-equilibrium dynamics of many-body systems. He has got his PhD from Harish-Chandra Research Institute in India in 2016. After that he worked as a postdoc at the Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics in Pohang, South Korea. In 2018 he has joined the UESTC as a postdoc to work in the group of Professor Abolfazl Bayat.
