Quantum technology aims to harness the laws of quantum mechanics to build tools for sensing and information processing. Quantum mechanics describes the unique behavior of matter and energy at the atomic and subatomic level. The field of quantum technologies is comprised of quantum communication, quantum cryptography, quantum simulation, quantum computation, quantum sensing and metrology. Quantum technology is expected to have applications in personalized medicine, natural resource exploration, environmental monitoring and secure communications.

- Cluster: Quantum technologyA cluster of topics in quantum technology with applications outside of quantum computing.
- Quantum computingThe study of computation systems that make use of quantum mechanical phenomena (eg entanglement and superposition). Quantum computers use qubits (rather than binary 0 and 1s) which can be in both states at the same time by being in a superposition of states.
