The EU aims at holding a dominant global position in nanotechnology, micro-nanoelectronics, photonics and advanced materials: four of the six Key Enabling Technologies (KET) identified by the European Commission. Such dominnat position strongly depends on the availability of proper tools that can serve the metrology needs of those KETs in terms of speed, non-invasiveness, reliability and integrability. This project is a part of the collaborative Joint Research Project (JRP) BeCOMe. This JRP explores novel metrology paradigms exploiting light-matter interplay, the topological information encoded in optical fields and the most recent accomplishments in the areas of quantum optics and inverse problems to achieve disruptive advances in optical metrology.
