CNTR Fact Sheet on Quantum Technology

Hand with a white glove holding a tiny computer
First open-access publication in the new series is online

The first CNTR Fact Sheet by Lena Bühring (CNTR/PRIF) and Prof. Dr. Markus Gräfe (TU Darmstadt) provides an overview of the four pillars of quantum technology: Computing, communications, sensor technology, and imaging. The German-language publication also highlights various applications with a focus on security relevance and takes a look at the development of quantum technology over time.

The Fact Sheet on quantum technology kicks of CNTR's Fact Sheet series. The Fact Sheets are published on a regular basis to make the project's research findings available to a wider audience and to counteract disinformation. These short-format publications provide facts and figures as well as short explanations on CNTR’s research topics. CNTR Fact Sheets are available as open-access publications on our website.
