Research Overview

Quantum technologies can harness the properties of single atoms or particles of light, and have relevance to computing, sensing, imaging, metrology, communications, and cryptography. Because of their applicability, quantum technologies have the potential to be truly transformative, with uses in areas including intelligence, financial security, computing, medicine, and navigation.

We have entered the second quantum revolution, but it is still in its infancy, and the nascent quantum industry requires significant fundamental research to mature novel technologies.

In partnership with our industry members, the CQT researchers will use their expertise in quantum science and engineering to develop and transfer foundational knowledge into industry-relevant quantum devices, systems, and algorithms.
