Cluster: Quantum Technology

A cluster of topics in quantum technology with applications outside of quantum computing.

The field of quantum technologies is comprised of quantum communication, quantum simulation, quantum computation, quantum sensing and metrology. Technologies are being developed that address individual quantum states and use quantum properties such as superposition and entanglement. This cluster of topics relate to quantum technology applications outside of quantum computing. For topics specific to quantum computing topics please see Cluster: Quantum Computing.

Quantum Technology Basics

Quantum Communication and Cryptography

Quantum communication generates and uses quantum states and resources for communication protocols with applications in secure communication, long-term secure storage, cloud computing and other cryptography-related tasks. Quantum communication also applies to a secure future ‘quantum web’ involving quantum resources like entanglement, nonlocality, randomness and connecting remote devices and systems. Typically, protocols are built on quantum random number generators (QRNG) for secret keys and quantum key distribution (QKD) for their secure distribution.
