Hunting hidden eye diseases: A quantum scanner for non-invasive biopsies

Horizon Europe backed team of researchers is developing a quantum scanner for tracking down human eye diseases using nothing but light. The quantum scanner is to be tested on mice for monitoring and detecting eye diseases. The resolution of classical laser beam scanning is sufficient to monitor cell layers in the retina but not enough for the required diagnostic accuracy. By harnessing quantum entanglement the team plans to double the image detail of the scans, to detect diseases such as glaucoma, where early diagnosis is crucial.
