The electron radar – QuSig4QuSense
The recent progress in quantum nano-electronics have given rise to the emerging field of electron quantum optics. It is now possible to generate, manipulate and characterize quantum electrical currents carrying one to few electron excitations within quantum Hall edge channels and to use them to generate quantum micro-wave radiation. This project aims at exploring the potential of electron quantum optics for the quantum sensing of non-stationary quantum electromagnetic fields on very small spatial and time scales (sub micrometer and nano to picosecond). For this, we propose to use quantum electronic interferometers fed by quantum electrical currents. These experiments will be supported by a theoretical quantum signal processing framework developed during the project to quantify the performances of the device and analyze the experimental data.
