Quantum science and engineering has the potential to revolutionize 21st century technology in much the same way that lasers, electronics, and computing did in the 20th century. The aim of ITL Quantum Information Program is to understand the potential for quantum-based technology to transform computing and communications, and to develop the measurement and standards infrastructure necessary to exploit this potential.
The principal goals of the ITL Quantum Information Program are
Examples of significant accomplishments within this program include
