AMADEUS (2022-2026) is an industry-led consortium, funded in the framework of the Quantum Technologies Flagship to develop miniaturized, integrated, transportable quantum sensors based on nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond. Starting from results obtained in the Horizon 2020 project ASTERIQS, the aim of the AMADEUS project is to develop field demonstrators with a technology readiness level (TRL) of 6 to 7 and to provide first plans for their further industrialization. The developed sensors include an integrated spectrum analyzer, a miniaturized magnetic field gradiometer, a wide-field imager allowing parallel optical and magnetic imaging and a compact magnetometer for space applications. Within this project, IMEC is in charge of developing a high-TRL miniaturized, photoelectrically readout magnetometer for space applications, based on a concept already developed by Imo-imomec in the framework of a student project in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA) and currently tested aboard the International Space Station.
