Quantum information science (QIS) builds on the study of the smallest particles of matter and energy to obtain and process information in ways that cannot be achieved using classical principles of physics. Will the technologies being developed using QIS translate into significant commercial markets in the future? To help answer this question, a team of IDA researchers assessed developments in three categories of quantum technologies: metrology and sensing, communications, and computing and simulation.
