TU Delft researchers have designed one of the world’s most precise microchip sensors. This device will also be able to work in room temperature. This design was influenced by nature’s spiderwebs by combining nanotechnology and machine learning. This nanomechanical sensor also vibrates in extreme isolation from everyday noise.
This sensor will help in the field of quantum internet, navigation and sensing.
Studying vibrating objects at the smallest scale is a difficult job. As Quantum hardware is kept at absolute zero temperature. To keep this hardware, scientists need refrigerators that cost half a million euros apiece.
The new web-shaped microchip sensor can work in isolation from room temperature noise. This discovery will make quantum devices affordable.
