Sensing at the limit

In this collection we highlight the latest progress in our ability to sense and image the world around us. Using principles from quantum and optical physics, access to regimes beyond the limit of our own senses has proven vital for a broad range of applications. From the nanoscale to astronomical measurements, this collection aims to represent the breadth of sensing applications and provide an outlook for future research.

The articles featured in this collection were proposed by editors from all contributing journals, and the final selection was made by Daniel Payne (Communications Physics), Mark Daly (Scientific Reports), Rachel Won (Nature Photonics), Benjamin Heinrich (Nature Nanotechnology) and Heinrich Leymann (Nature Communications).

For queries or comments about the collection please contact Daniel Payne.
