Quantum applications today


Technologies that rely on quantum phenomena are all around us. The first wave of quantum technologies gave us the transistor. These devices became the foundation of modern computers and digital communication. Other examples of technologies powered by quantum mechanics include:

... and many others! These technologies rely on quantum effects that need limited control. Quantum information technologies aim to fully control individual quantum systems. Achieving this control promises new capabilities for computation, digital communication, sensor technology, and other applications.
