How will quantum technologies improve the environment?

Quantum technologies will have an impact on all aspects of the environment, for example allowing better monitoring of crops and detecting issues hidden underground before they become a real problem.

Smart Living,
What are quantum communications?

Communications will be revolutionised by quantum technologies. Fundamentally secure communications will be available, thanks to quantum physics, making banking more secure.

Secure communications
What will quantum technologies look like in space?

Quantum technologies will improve communications for inter-satellite networks and provide incredibly precise atomic clocks for many space-based applications.

The next generation of quantum technologies is here. Learn about quantum science with partners from the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme and see what living in a "quantum city" might be like.

Quantum physics has already contributed to technology, such as the lasers and semiconductors that run our computers and smartphones, and continues to inspire and drive innovation. With the help of quantum science, the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme is working towards making a positive difference to your everyday life, from medicines, finance, energy use and telecommunications to imaging and computing.

Fancy a future career in Quantum City?

The next generation of quantum technologies will soon be here and it's an exciting time to be a part of it. The UK is already investing in training and further development of its future scientists and quantum engineers, with Centres for Doctoral Training to explore and push the boundaries of quantum science. If you’re interested in finding out what it might be like to work in the field of quantum physics, come speak to us at Quantum City. We’ll be more than happy to share our experience!
