Hosted by the National Research Council of Canada’s (NRC) Security and Disruptive Technologies Research Centre, the goal of the Internet of Things: Quantum Sensors Challenge program is to enable the development of revolutionary sensors that harness the extreme sensitivity of quantum systems to provide enhanced precision, sensitivity, rates, and range of measurable phenomena.
Areas of focus:
- Quantum photonics: Creating, transporting, and detecting quantum information in photonic systems.
- Chip-based quantum systems: Transitioning quantum systems onto chips in order to create a path towards commercialization
- Quantum metrology: The development of intrinsic, primary measurement standards as well as standards and certifications for commercial quantum systems.
Collaborative projects will be defined under each focus area.
We invite researchers from the academic, public, not-for-profit, and private sectors as well as from Indigenous communities and organizations to express their interest in collaborating with the Program. We are currently seeking collaborators with research expertise in quantum sensing for environmental, health care, and defence and security applications and project ideas contributing to one of the focus areas listed above.
Deadline DateThe program is currently engaging with stakeholders on its areas of focus and is scheduled to begin implementation in the spring of 2021.
