Quantum Science and Technology
A quantum sensor is the device that exploits quantum correlations such as quantum entanglement to achieve sensitivity or the resolution that is better than can attain using only classical systems. A quantum sensor can measure effect of quantum state of alternative system by itself. The simple act of measurement influences quantum state and varies the probability and the uncertainty associated with its state during measurement. Quantum sensor is the term used in other settings wherever entangled quantum systems are browbeaten to make better more sensitive magnetometers or atomic clocks. Quantum Photonics is to explore the fundamental features of quantum mechanics and also the work towards future photonic quantum technologies by manipulating, generating and measuring single photons as well as the quantum systems that emit photons. The market for quantum dots-built products such as new television screens is projected to reach $3.5 billion by 2020. The majority of this growth will come from increased demand in the US.
