UK team aims for commercial quantum-based gravity sensor

5:20 am PST, November 16, 2018

A UK consortium is to develop quantum-based gravity sensors that will allow underground objects and voids to be detected. The aim is to build a portable technology demonstrator by April 2021, that is twice as sensitive as the industry standard (falling mass) technique and, importantly because the aims is for this to lead to a ...
