The actual paper[1] states that their prototype has similar performance to the best commercial sensors. However it is much better than any previous optical sensor, and they claim that if they scale the device they can reduce the thermal NEA to 150 ng/rtHz with a 25KHz bandwidth, which would be commercially interesting.
