At IQ, quantum engineering means developing technologies from scientific knowledge in quantum science that exploit or aim to control quantum phenomena. These phenomena generally involve quantum strangeness or exotic states or effects arising from the quantum nature of matter.
We find in this field:
- Exploit quantum effects for technological purposes with the help of engineering tools;
- Solve quantum problems with the help of engineering tools;
- Lift technical barriers encountered in the development of quantum technologies that require engineering tools;
- To bring to greater maturity quantum technologies in order to commercialize and benefit from the engineering approach.
In that context, engineering tools means theories and methodologies developed in engineering.
