The consortium consists of a core team of Fraunhofer IAF, IPM and IWM that develops technologies and theories for quantum sensors. Three further institutes (IISB, IMM, CAP) contribute to this core consortium with the scientific and technological expertise required for the development of the quantum-technological core components.
The consortium is complemented by external academic expertise in the field of diamond based quantum technologies (Prof. Jörg Wrachtrup, University of Stuttgart) and atomic gas magnetometry (University of Freiburg in cooperation with Prof. Svenja Knappe, University of Colorado Boulder).
There are no research organisations in the world that cover all relevant research areas in a comparable way and that could consequently use this expertise for quantum sensor technology in an overarching synergy.

The Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF coordinates the project.
It develops an imaging scanning probe magnetometer based on NV centers in diamond, which measures magnetic fields with highest spatial resolution at room temperature. This enables precise measurements in micro- and nanoelectronics.
