Quantum readout techniques and technologies

Project description

Quantum technology improves readout of classical data

Classical data is information stored on a hard-drive, CD-ROM or other common digital memory. It can also be associated with other physical systems, such as the structure of biomedical materials. The EU-funded QUARTET project will enable improved computer information readout, pattern recognition and even radar detection using complex quantum resources and detectors. Quantum-enhanced pattern recognition could have remarkable long-term applications in biology and medicine. It has the potential to enable non-invasive analysis of very fragile biological samples or human tissues, and better recognise hidden patterns associated with bacterial growth or cancerous cells. In addition, the creation of a working quantum radar prototype could have major applications for aircraft detection, tracking and other security technology.
