Controlling quantum technologies (2005–2007)

We are on the verge of a Quantum Technology revolution where quantum physics is driving otherwise impossible technological advances. To date quantum technologies have made little use of the monitoring and feedback that is ubiquitous in everyday industry keeping planes in the air and robots welding accurately. This project is concerned with learning to actively control finite-size quantum systems and processes by studying the control of photons single particles of light. Our experimental and theoretical research will advance the new science of quantum control and have immediate application to quantum technologies such as absolutely secure communication and ultrahigh precision measurement
