With so many other things going on in the world, it was easy to miss how far quantum technology evolved in 2020. Little more than a year ago it was still possible for serious writers in serious publications to doubt that quantum computers would ever take off commercially. Now the debate is more over how much can be done by

What to do with a Quantum Computer:  We still don’t know Last year Google loudly proclaimed “quantum advantage” or – if you are feeling aggressive — “quantum supremacy.” This is a controversial point.  But whatever your taste in terminology or views on what Google did, there can be little doubt that quantum computers have come a long way. One only

Inside Quantum Technology believes that an interesting side show in the escalating quantum rivalry between the USA, China and Russia is developing and will lead to growing expenditures on quantum radar: Since the development of the F-117 stealth fighter in the 1980’s — stealth aircraft have formed a key part of strategic air doctrine. Stealth aircraft changed air warfare from

PNT (Position, Navigation and Timing) information is crucial on the modern battlefield for navigation and delivering smart munitions. Global Position Systems (GPS) have been the mainstay of military PNT since the late 1970s. But, as seen recently in both the Ukraine and Syria, electronic warfare (EW) countermeasures are increasingly effective at reducing the accuracy of smart munitions to the level

QuTech, the quantum institute of the Delft University of Technology, and the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology (ILT) have recently launched a long-term strategic partnership to develop quantum frequency converters. The first Quantum Internet demonstration that requires quantum frequency converters planned by QuTech is slated for 2022. Inside Quantum Technology believes that quantum frequency converters represent a little-talked about opportunity
