Quantum Landscape

Introduction to the Quantum Landscape

Investment in quantum technologies is rapidly accelerating at both a national and company level. New partnering opportunities are emerging globally. A wide variety of academic research, investment, patent, software and pilot deployment activities are underway across the Quantum Technology sector (18)(17)(13)(9)(4). National Programmes The US has perhaps the most visible quantum technologies presence due to…

Enhanced Quantum Sensing and Imaging

Introduction to Enhanced Quantum Sensing and Imaging

Quantum technologies are unlocking a new generation of measurement, sensing and imaging devices of unprecedented precision and capability. The ability to routinely manipulate matter at the atomic level, tailor high performance laser systems and detect individual photons of light unlocks a wealth of possibilities. The very fine quantum interference effects that become manifest in these…

Introduction to Quantum Safe Cryptography

Commercial transactions on the Internet and routine cyber security depend on the effectiveness of public key cryptography. Quantum computers will make existing standards obsolete. The impact of this starts now. The central technical pillar of online security is the use of secure cryptographic algorithms to encrypt data, passwords and identities, and so keep them safe…

Quantum Information Processing

Introduction to Quantum Information Processing

Quantum computers offer no advantage in and of themselves. Their true potential is only realised when they run new quantum algorithms. Conventional computers have benefited from 50 years of continuous development. The speed of their underlying logic gate operations will be significantly faster than the speed of quantum gate operations for the foreseeable future. Take…

Quantum Computers

Introduction to Quantum Computers

An immediate challenge for the interested business observer is how to interpret the true state of progress against a background of hype and corporate spin. All conventional computing is ultimately based on data stored as digital bits, each a 1 or 0, and their manipulation via logic gates. The great power of modern computing comes…

Introduction to Quantum Technology Terminology

A new wave of technology is set to take the world beyond binary 1 and 0. Revolutions 1QR The advent of quantum mechanics and its many experimental confirmations during the 20th century was by most measures the greatest revolution in the physical sciences since Copernicus put the sun at the centre of the solar system.…
