Quantum Technology is a rapidly growing interdisciplinary field, at the intersection of physics, mathematics and computer science. It employs the fundamental properties of quantum systems to realize practical devices and applications for quantum simulations and computing, communication and cryptography, sensing and metrology.
Since its inception more than two decades ago, the field of Quantum technology progressed rapidly, with recent numerous theoretical and experimental breakthroughs. The use of principles of quantum mechanics for information processing and communications has changed our perception of the nature of information, paving the way for more efficient digital quantum computations, analog quantum simulations, secure communications. The enhanced sensitivity of suitably prepared quantum systems to small external perturbations is being used for metrological applications of unprecedented precision.
