Quantum technologies are technologies that are based on the targeted exploitation of quantum effects. Examples of this are semiconductor technologies, magnetic resonance tomography or the laser. In current scientific and technical developments - the second generation of quantum technologies - the focus is on the control of quantum states of individual or coupled systems, i.e. its targeted preparation, its coherent control and subsequent detection. This results in new possibilities for applications in information transmission and processing, for highly precise and sensitive measuring and imaging devices, as well as for overcoming today's limitations in the simulation of complex systems... In the field of quantum technology, the BMBF has initiated a strategy process involving the specialist community, which has emphasized the importance of the subject area for the economic and scientific location of Germany. This has been in line with the current assessment of the subject field in the..
