Quantum Technologies using Light and Matter

Professor Ian Walmsley FRS, University of Oxford

Quantum mechanics provide a new paradigm for engineering design, promising new functionality for sensors, communications, simulation and computation based on the properties of superposition and entanglement. Hybrid systems of light and matter can provide all of the necessary elements needed to take advantage of the these features and to realise these new technologies. I will discuss the capabilities of some of these new quantum technologies and the way in which the strange properties of quantum light and matter enable them.
