(IOPscience) Three new reports follow on from reviews on the states of quantum technologies in Canada, the EU, Japan, the US and Australia – which were published earlier this year. Overall, the group has compiled a unique collection of Perspectives to provide insight into what is now a global pursuit for quantum technology research breakthroughs and dominance.
UK, Russia and China Quantum Tech Reviewed by Leading Physicists
The UK report is by Peter Knight and Ian Walmsley of Imperial College London and describes how more the £1bn in government and industry funding has been committed to developing quantum technologies in the period 2014-2024. The UK’s National Quantum Technology Programme.
Russia’s efforts to develop quantum technologies are described in a report by 14 physicists at the Russian Quantum Center in Moscow and several other institutes. The authors point out that the country is in the process of adopting a five-year Russian Quantum Technologies Roadmap as part of the nation’s Digital Economy National Program. The final budget for the quantum technologies portion of this initiative is expected to be about €1bn.
A report written by five physicists at the University of Science and Technology of China including Jian-Wei Pan points out that China has spent nearly $1bn on quantum-technology research and development over the past decade. This includes the launch of the Micius quantum-communications satellite, which was launched in 2016.
