Quantum Science and Technology

Significant and consistent investment at the national level in developing the field of quantum science and technology is expected to constitute a significant upgrade of Israel’s research abilities and its status as a key player in this field.

The development of quantum science and technology is based on an understanding of the interaction between individual degrees of freedom of the system (for example, photons and individual atoms) and the development of the technology required to control them. These abilities hold the promise, and in part already allow, the construction of infinitely more powerful computers than those that exist today, alongside encrypted communication that is impervious to eavesdropping, the simulation of systems too complex to calculate using existing computers, sensors far more sensitive than those commonly available, the development of materials with unique characteristics, and more.
