Join us for a half-day event where Centre of Applied Photonics and the Danish Optical Society highlight the technology race towards quantum computing and quantum technologies.

A quantum revolution

We are looking into a quantum revolution that will potentially transform our society. Quantum computing is a disruptive technology capable of revolutionizing data analysis and optimisation problems, and the applications extend to various sectors such as life science, energy, transportation, and finance.

Real-life applications of quantum technology include cryptography, metrology, machine learning, material science, chemical engineering, and biopharma to name a few.

Denmark and Danish research institutes are at the forefront of this race with world-class scientific and technological competencies within quantum photonics. This recently led to Denmark being awarded the NATO quantum research centre.

Ulrik L. Andersen from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU Physics) will present their progress towards Denmark’s first photonic quantum computer. 

Jan Hald will join us from the Danish National Metrology Institute (DFM) and will cover the prospects of quantum technologies within metrology and finally Morten Bache from the Novo Nordisk Foundation will discuss the applications within life sciences.
