Quantum sensing protocols are limited by noise in the system. We implement the tools of Error Correction from Quantum Information theory in order to improve sensing protocols and reduce the effects of the noise. In the talk I will present basic concepts of quantum sensing and of error correction and an implementable sensing protocol that incorporates error correction. I will discuss the characteristics of such protocols and the different types of noises to which they are tailored, and their limits of applicability.
