A quantum leap in the history of From Know-How to Wow! Shuko and Geoff hear from Riccardo Cipolletti, a physicist at Bosch Quantum Sensing. The team he’s a part of is developing magnetic field quantum sensors that are 1,000 times more sensitive than today’s MEMS sensors. They can, for instance, easily measure the tiniest magnetic fields inside our own bodies like those caused by neuron activity. Neuroscientist Marc Dingman explains why data like this could help doctors better understand some conditions that today just seem bizarre. Along the way, our hosts try to get a feeling for what a “femto Tesla” is, what autonomous cars can learn from migratory birds, and what it takes to control a quantum system.
