In this article, we will discuss Quantum Technology and India (Brief Overview). So, let’s get started.

Quantum Technology

  • Quantum Technology is based on the principles of Quantum mechanics that was developed in the early 20th century to describe nature at the scale of atoms and elementary particles.
  • The first phase of this revolutionary technology has provided the foundations of understanding of the physical world and led to ubiquitous inventions such as lasers and semiconductor transistors.
  • The second revolution is currently underway with the goal of putting properties of quantum mechanics in the realms of computing.


Comparison between India and China

  • R&D in China: China started its research and development (R&D) in the field of quantum technology in 2008.
  • In 2022, China boasts of developing the world’s first quantum satellite, creating a quantum communication line between Beijing and Shanghai, and owning two of the world’s fastest quantum computers.
  • This was a result of decade-long research carried out in the hope of achieving critical breakthroughs.
  • India: Quantum Technology remains a field highly concentrated in long-term R&D in India.
  • Just a few hundred researchers, industry professionals, academicians, and entrepreneurs are in the field right now without a constant focus on R&D.
