The title of the awarded poster was “Wide-field SU(1,1) interferometer”. The MPL scientist`s contribution presents a novel configuration for an interferometer, which uses the principles of quantum optics to achieve very high sensitivity to external perturbations and extreme precision for images of microscopic objects.

The conference is organised for more than 300 scientists researching in the field of Quantum Optics from all over the world to discuss on the topics of Quantum Metrology, Sensing and Imaging.
