Quantum-enhanced gyroscopes for navigation

Professor Tim Spiller at the University of Leeds is investigating quantum-enhanced gyroscopes for navigation, writes Steve Bush in UK plc reveals quantum 2.0 science, having visited the National Physical Laboratory.

First simulations indicate they could approach the Heisenberg’s uncertainty limits.

In a quantum gyroscope, ultra cold atoms…
