    Quantum sensing and technological approaches

    August, 4th 2023

    Between November 21st and 22nd, 2022, scientists and students presented their research at the Quantum Bio BR Summit. The studies discussed in the morning lectures on the second day of the event highlighted technological approaches to quantum sensing.

    Researcher Gabriela Lemos, professor at the UFRJ Institute of Physics and member of the editorial board of Quantum Science and Technology (IOP Publishing), opened the conversation with a lecture on the production of images with the quantum properties of light. The researcher’s conclusions are that recent developments in camera technologies and photon sources have enabled new imaging concepts, which can be useful for extremely low intensity light samples and when the wavelength is far below or above the visible range.

    Quantum engineer Clarice Aiello, a researcher at the Quantum Biology Tech Lab (QuBiT) at UCLA, spoke about quantum measurements in living sensors. She shared some of her experience using a magnetic quantum sensor enhanced with spins in a diamond, whose light emission differed according to the position of the spins.

    The potential of biological systems to benefit from quantum entanglement gained space in Daniel Felinto’s speech, associate professor at the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE) specialist in Optics, Atomic Physics and Quantum Information. He talked about spontaneous emission to build quantum networks.

    Cristiano de Mello Gallep, professor at the College of Technology/Telecommunications Engineering at the University of Campinas (Unicamp), spoke about the quantum phenomena of autoluminescence in germination.

    Specialist in the development of scientific instrumentation for the study of nanostructures, Ado Jorio is a physics professor at UFMG, member of the Brazilian Society of Physics, the Brazilian Academy of Sciences, the National Order of Scientific Merit and The World Academy of Sciences. During the Quantum Bio BR Summit he spoke about the generation of correlated quantum photons in Raman spectroscopy. Among the topics covered and the quantum connections established were the correlation of stokes and anti-stokes components in mirroring, studies of amyloid plaques, interaction of nanotubes with surfaces and the functioning of Nano Raman.
