Unlocking the quantum world to surpass the limits of the present
It has been about 100 years since the introduction of quantum mechanics revolutionized the field of physics. Over the past few years, a new research field has arisen at Tokyo Tech called "quantum science and technology." Using the entire breadth of the Institute's strengths, the field focuses on supporting society through the practical application of quantum science and technology. But what exactly is quantum science and technology and why are we talking about it? We interviewed the Dean of the School of Engineering, Nobuyuki Iwatsuki, who plays a central role in promoting the advancement of this exciting field. We also introduce highlights of Tokyo Tech's cutting-edge research in the area of quantum science and technology.
