Nanopositioning Automation For The Quantum Era

The emerging field of quantum technology (quantum computing, quantum photonics, quantum communication) has snapped into view with surprising speed over the past two years. Once the stuff of science fiction and arcane experimentation, this counterintuitive field of physics is proving highly useful for computing, sensing, and secure communications. Major players in all these fields have announced ambitious projects, accompanied by a rapidly blooming field of bright ventures dedicated to disruptive application of the mind-bending rules and interactions of the quantum world.

It is even difficult to write about, as it is no longer a topic of only the smallest scales. Already, companies like Toshiba are introducing quantum key distribution network equipment which leverage quantum effects to secure communications over channels of any length.

Right there, you can see an intersection between photonics -- essential for fast, scalable, and energy-efficient data communications -- and the quantum technology world. But this connection extends throughout all the fields of quantum technology, even to its more un-obvious corners.
