Call for proposals – Quantum Sensors - 2023

Within the national quantum strategy, started in 2021, the ANR launches a call for research proposals in quantum sensors and quantum metrology. The roadmap of the national quantum strategy includes a response to needs in the metrology domain, that correspond to developments in quantum technologies.

This call for proposals aims at funding high quality research projects, in the following topics:

  • Quantum sensors based on defects in diamond, applied to magnetometry, and beyond;
  • Quantum sensors based on defects in other materials (SiC, Si, GaN, hBN, …);
  • Optomechanical, electromechanical, or hybrid quantum systems;
  • Quantum sensors based on superconducting circuits;
  • Entangled quantum states;
  • Innovative materials;
  • Networks of quantum sensors.

Descriptions of these topics, and details on the eligibility of proposals are provided in the call text, available below in the Documents section. The proposal template to be used by each proposal in also provided in that section below.

Opening : 2023-02-16 at 09:00 CET
