Quantum technology, which enables the manipulation of atoms and sub-atomic particles, will allow for a new class of ultra-sensitive devices with key potential to profoundly impact and disrupt significant applications in areas such as defense, aerospace, industrial, commercial, infrastructure, transportation and logistics markets. The ability to control and predict the behavior of atoms and ions has key opportunities to enable exquisitely sensitive sensors for application such as ultra-precise navigation, improved location of buried objects, enhanced geophysical or resource exploration, as well as ultra-precise measurement of time, computers able to solve very complex problems much faster than classical computers, considerably more secure and rapid data communications, and imaging in previously impossible conditions with greatly enhanced resolution.
Quantum technology is also driving advancements in more compact lasers, microfabricated atom/ion traps and diffraction gratings for trapping and cooling atoms, single-photon detectors for applications such as enhanced imaging and quantum cryptography, microfabricated vapor cells containing atomic vapors or optically cooled atoms.
