Quantum and Nanophotonics

Quantum technology will revolutionize a variety of applications such as secure communication, simulation of quantum systems and quantum computation. For instance, a quantum computer, relying on quantum mechanical properties such as the superposition and entanglement of quantum states, is shown to be capable of performing calculations more than 3,000,000 times faster than the most powerful conventional supercomputer. Therefore, the quantum computer is important to speed up new scientific breakthroughs, new medications, machine learning to diagnose illnesses faster and to reach many of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development.
