First programmable quantum sensor

A research group led by Peter Zoller in Innsbruck has developed a new concept that can be used to operate sensors with even greater precision, regardless of which particular technical platform is used to make the sensor. "We answer the question of how precise a sensor can be with existing control capabilities and provide a recipe for how this can be achieved," explain Denis Vasilyev and Raphael Kaubrügger from Peter Zoller's group at the Institute of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information at the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Innsbruck.

"We have demonstrated a crucial component of quantum-enhanced atomic clocks with our variational Ramsey interferometry," says Peter Zoller. "The next step is running this in a dedicated atomic clock. What has so far only been shown for calculations of questionable practical relevance could be demonstrated with a programmable quantum sensor in the near future – the real quantum advantage."

EU Commission relies on Austrian battery tests

The startup AVILOO headquartered in Lower Austria became the first company to develop a diagnostic test for electric car batteries.


Since 2007 PHIOS has accompanied well-known companies in the implementation of particularly challenging and complex software projects. At the beginning of May 2022, the Liechtenstein company opened its Vienna location. From here, the Austrian market is to be built up and neighboring countries in the east are to be worked on. The managing director is Stefan Vögel, an expert with many years of international experience in strategic consulting and project management.
