Quantum Technologies are in the blooming era. Everyone talks about it. We are in the midst of a second quantum revolution unfolding, in which we are trying to exploit our ability to understand, detect and manipulate objects at the microscopic level, in the regime of single quantum objects.

We are all aware that quantum physics has the potential of becoming an essential ingredient of our future disruptive technologies and it will bring forward new commercial opportunities addressing global challenges, providing strategic capabilities for security and seeding yet unimagined applications for the future. At the same time, we continue to carry out more fundamental research, going beyond the frontiers of knowledge to discovered unfathomable phenomena.

In that pursuit, Nature Communications has highlighted the research papers in quantum-related areas that have been published by the journal in the past year. This focused collection of articles allows the reader to see some of the amazing advances that quantum technologies have achieved in the past year.

In this collection of articles, the Quantum Flagship projects QRANGE and macQsimal have been mentioned in the study carried out by an international team of researchers led by Morgan W. Mitchell from ICFO, entitled “Measurement-induced, spatially-extended entanglement in a hot, strongly-interacting atomic system”.

Enjoy the read!
