The new research building with a usable area of around 2800 m2 is being built on the campus of Ulm University. In the beginning of 2019, almost 115 researchers from various disciplines will work in state-of-the-art laboratories in the four-story building. Together, they want to develop new approaches based on quantum technology and contribute to biomedical research and diagnostics. Their goals are high-performance sensors and the improvement of imaging techniques - one example is single-molecule magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
