    “The best place in the world for quantum sensing“ Academic globetrotter starts MSCA fellowship at Ulm University

    Dr. Robert Cernansky is the future Marie Skłodowska-Curie-fellow at Ulm University.

The 30-year-old scientist chose Ulm University as his European guest institution because he admires the work of Professor Fedor Jelezko. The director of Ulm University’s Institute of Quantum optics was among the first scientists to develop quantum magnetic sensors based on point defects in artificial diamonds. “Thus, Ulm University is the best place in the world for me to learn about quantum sensing“, explains Robert Cernansky.
