Our research is concentrated on theoretical quantum measurement, sensing and metrology, quantum optomechanics, quantum optics, entanglement, nonlocality, quantum information and the foundations of quantum mechanics related to quantum technology.
We are cooperating with theory groups and experimental groups in Norway, USA, Canada, UK, Finland and Mexico.
Ongoing research projects
University College of Southeast Norway is the only Norwegian institution that has been recommended funding in QuantERA, a program under Horizon 2020 "Future and Emerging Technologies". Professor Kjetil Børkje participates with the project QuaSeRT (Optomechanical quantum sensors at room temperature). The project is led from Italy, and also has partners from Austria, France, Germany and Netherlands .
Quantum technologies in space
Quantum technologies in space is a four year European COST-project which will identify fundamental questions in quantum mechanics that may be answered through experiments in space. The project will identify possible applications of quantum technology in space, and includes technology development in cooperation with national space agencies and industrial partners.
