The Rydberg sensor project is the Ideas Lab’s first project and is seeking to develop quantum sensor technology that will play a critical testing and measurement role with respect to 5G, radar and autonomous vehicles. Existing technologies face major limitations as users move to the higher frequency portion of the radio spectrum known as ‘millimetre waves’. The Rydberg sensor is not subject to these limitations. As such it is the obvious technology for these mission critical uses.
