The overall objective of this project is to realize a new generation of ultra-stable optical oscillators which take advantage of quantum technologies. This implies a knowledge transfer in theoretical and experimental quantum manipulation from quantum optics and quantum computing, to the optical frequency metrology field. While the application of quantum measurement strategies in atomic clocks and sensors via multi-particle and light-matter interactions is at the proof-of-principle stage, this JRP will implement and further develop state-of-the-art quantum measurement strategies on optical oscillators of metrological relevance. It will impact on metrology and sensing with cold atomic systems and optical devices, as well as in those techniques used in scalable quantum information processing and simulation
