INDUSTRIAL PERSPECTIVE ON QUANTUM TECHNOLOGIES

We would like to draw your attention to a special event at the World of Photonics Congress. The event will take up a current and highly important topical issue which experiences national and European funding to a significant extent. The issue involves quantum technologies whose value and foreseeable industrial use will be examined in two practice-oriented presentations:

INDUSTRIAL PERSPECTIVE ON QUANTUM TECHNOLOGIES
