Age of the participants: from class 10

Short description:

Since the second quantum revolution, the growing exploitation of quantum states led to many sophisticated and novel applications. Former, mainly academic research is more and more transferred into real-world quantum technology ready to serve practical tasks. Today, the quantum computer is within reach, satellite based quantum communication already started, and the field of sensing and imaging was revolutionized, too. Non-classical states of light promise a phase sensitivity beyond any classical and super-resolution capability. Moreover, based on quantum correlations, which are rooted in the very heart of quantum mechanics, the imaging of samples with photons that have never interacted with the object is feasible.
The presentation will give an overview on photon-based quantum technology with a particular focus on quantum-enhanced imaging.
