ORNL reports method that takes quantum sensing to new level

(April 23, 2015)  Thermal imaging, microscopy and ultra-trace sensing could take a quantum leap with a technique developed by researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

“Quite simply, under certain circumstances, our method enables us to see things we couldn’t see before,” said Raphael Pooser, co-author of a paper published in the journal Optica. He and Benjamin Lawrie used quantum correlated beams of light to overcome the fundamental detection limit of microcantilever-based sensors caused by intensity fluctuations.
