24.06.2020 Physicists at the University of Konstanz have developed a completely new method of measuring squeezing – a potential starting point for high-precision sensor technology. Their work was published in Physical Review X.

HOT PI, Prof. Eva Weig, leads the Nanomechanics group at the University of Konstanz and explains:  “It was theoretically known beforehand that this would have to happen, but it has never been measured with such clarity, because it is a relatively subtle effect.” Her group was able to demonstrate how such a new method allows examining squeezed states in systems where such measurements were not possible before.
