The project ASTERIQs, under the FET flagship on quantum technologies of the European Union, aims to bring quantum technology from the laboratories to industrial applications. NV-centers in diamonds are used, in order to develop quantum sensors with unprecedented efficiency. This enables new applications with TRL 4 – 5, e.g. the sensing of single molecules to develop personalized medicine, or GPS independent magnetic field navigation systems for autonomous driving. To ensure the usability for the final user, the project team integrates them into a functioning diamond magnetometer with the appropriate software. By those means the quantum sensor technology is made ready for a broad application.
