Technology Innovation Hub

Quantum technology (QT) is an emerging field of physics and engineering, which relies on the principles of quantum physics. It is about creating practical applications (a) first in sensing and metrology, (b) then in communications and simulations, (c) then as feedback to foundations of quantum theory, and (d) ultimately in computation based on properties of quantum mechanics, especially quantum entanglement, quantum superposition and quantum tunnelling. Quantum principles will be used for engineering solutions to extremely complex problems in computing, communications, sensing, chemistry, cryptography, imaging and mechanics. Some of the major technologies are: Quantum Communication, Quantum Cryptography, Quantum Computing, Quantum Metrology, Quantum Sensing, Quantum Matter, Quantum Materials, Quantum Enhanced Imaging, Quantum Chemistry etc. As the R&D in this field continues, the resulting technology will directly impact how the present world communicate, travel, conduct financial transactions, and even treat illnesses. Some of the future applications of QT will be autonomous vehicle navigation, weather modelling & prediction, transportation planning, pharmaceutical development, secure financial communications, resource exploration, sensing and quantum encryption among the many others.
