Quantum sensors are beginning to leave the laboratories

The contributions of the properties of quantum physics are not limited to the quantum computer, cryptography, or communication systems. In the future, we can also rely on quantum sensors, which use the extreme sensitivity of the quantum states of a photon, an electron or an atom, to make extremely precise measurements. Thanks to this unique […]

Brain-Computer Interface

A Brain-Computer Interface is a Human-Machine Interface (HMI) of a particular kind, as it provides direct communication with the human brain. Through thought, a user can thus remotely control a computer or a smart object. Freed from the chain of psychomotor reactions between the brain, the nerves, and the muscles, a BCI delivers much shorter […]
