European Regional Development Fund

The following project has received funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF-OP 2014-2020)


Integrierte Quantenmagnetometer für die Detektion schneller biomagnetischer Signale;
Teilthema: Entwicklung von kompakten DFB Laserdioden mit hoher Lebensdauer für den Hochtemperaturbetrieb
(grant agreement no. 2021 FE 9090)

Optisch gepumpte Magnetometer (OPM) sind höchstsensitive, quantenbasierte Magnetfeldsensoren und können bei der Auflösung mit den weltbesten supraleitenden Sensoren konkurrieren, ohne jedoch deren kryogene Kühlung zu erfordern. Eine Vielzahl technischer und physikalischer Durchbrüche der letzten beiden Jahrzehnte ermöglicht deutlich kleinere und flexible OPM zu bauen und anzuordnen, sodass sich völlig neue Einsatzmöglichkeiten z. B. bei biomedizinischen Messungen ergeben. Vorhabenziel ist, neue Cäsium-OPM basierend auf den Vorarbeiten zum spin exchange relaxation-free (SERF) Modus zu erforschen und sie von Laboraufbauten hin zu kompakten, modularen Einzelsensoren für die Detektion schneller Neurosignale in magnetischer Schirmung zu integrieren. Die zu integrierenden OPM-Einzelbaugruppen sollen durch die Verbundpartner erforscht und realisiert werden. Ein zentrales Element ist eine neuartige spezialisierte Laserdiode mit zugeschnittenen Eigenschaften, welche durch die nanoplus GmbH erforscht und im OPM-Aufbau realisiert wird.
