“A lot of potential and a step further”
A step further into quantum sensor technology: In recent decades there have been many gradual improvements in sensor hardware. One could certainly not speak of fundamental change, however, as has been achieved for software – until now: New results in quantum research have created completely new approaches for sensor use. Together with the TRUMPF subsidiary Q.ANT, SICK is now developing the first quantum optical sensor for serial production. Kai Klinder, Head of Program and Engineering in Global Business Center Analyzers, and Michael Overdick, Technology Management at SICK, talked to us about quantum sensors.
