Thuringian Innovation Center for Quantum Optics and Sensing

InQuoSens brings together excellent and internationally visible research activities of the Abbe Center of Photonics and the Institute for Micro- and Nanotechnologies at the Technical University of Ilmenau (IMN) in the key technologies quantum optics and sensor technology. By means of strategic investments measures and a joint strategy process at both locations, these fields are synergistically developed. InQuoSens coordinates its scientific development with the innovative needs of the Thuringian metrology and communication industry. For example, and together with the Fraunhofer IOF, InQuoSens is currently working on the question of how quantum technologies can be used in autonomous driving or medical diagnostics. Through these activities, InQuoSens will develop into an internationally independent center of scientific excellence with a critical mass of competences, which will increase the innovative power of the Thuringian economy. InQuoSens is supported by the State of Thuringia with EUR 3.0 million from 2017 until 2022.
