Building on the theories of Einstein and his contemporaries, today’s quantum physicists investigate the unique properties of sub-atomic particles, aiming to deepen our knowledge of the universe, and to usher in a new technological revolution. With applications in fields including computer science, pharmacology, clean energy, and many more, quantum science holds tremendous potential for innovative disruption.
