AMADEUS is an industry-oriented consortium involving large companies, RTOs, SMEs and academic partners. The project aims to bring to market quantum sensors using nitrogen vacancies (NV centers) in high-purity diamond crystals, one of the most promising and market-ready technologies in quantum sensing. NV centers in diamond are the core element for robust quantum sensing with unprecedented compactness, enabling breakthrough technologies for a variety of applications ranging from novel tools for the semiconductor industry to novel methods for measuring and analyzing brain function.
AMADEUS builds on the previous EU-funded ASTERIQS project, in which NV-based technology was developed to TRL 4-5 in the Quantum Flagship start-up phase. The AMADEUS project will pursue four advanced applications of this technology to TRL 6-7 to address societal and economic needs:
- A real-time cartography of the RF signal frequencies in 5G communication cellular networks and further 6G, enabling self-optimizing networks in dense area
- A tool to the semiconductor industry for 2D/3D non-invasive analysis of defects in microelectronic circuits at room temperature and in standard environment
- A sensor for monitoring the muscle and brain activity as novel medical diagnostic tool or as brain-machine interface in the future
- A multipurpose tool for monitoring magnetic fields in harsh environments, like space applications or detecting transient currents in electric car batteries
