Quantum technology for HEP experiments

Axion dark matter detection

A Fermilab dark matter experiment is conducting an initial search for these exotic particles using the world’s lowest-noise radio receiver, operated at a temperature near absolute zero.

Skipper CCDs for quantum imaging

Scientists have developed a next-generation version of the charge-coupled device, or CCD, that’s in your home camera. This sensitive, new technology, the skipper CCD, has the potential to exploit the quantum nature of light to capture images of objects with exceptional resolution.


Fermilab seeks to host MAGIS-100 — the 100-meter Matter-wave Atomic Gradiometer Interferometric Sensor — which will test quantum mechanics on macroscopic scales of space and time.
