Advancing Quantum Technologies in the U.S. (.PDF Download)

May 16, 2022
Two new executive orders could give quantum technologies a larger role in helping to advance U.S. technology and protect the nation’s critical computer networks from cybercrime.

A class of technology that works by using the principles of quantum mechanics (the physics of subatomic particles), including quantum entanglement and quantum superposition, quantum technology made it into the headlines this month when President Biden announced a new round of cybersecurity measures.

Not new by any means, quantum technology has been around a while. What’s different, according to one expert, is that “we’re now starting to control quantum entanglement and quantum superposition,” Paul Martin points out. Put simply, this means quantum technology is finding its way into everyday tools and improving navigation and timing systems; communications solutions; healthcare imaging (through quantum sensing); and computing as a whole.
