What is quantum information technology?
Quantum information technology is a field that harnesses the principles of quantum mechanics to process and transmit information using quantum bits, or qubits, as the fundamental units of information. Unlike classical bits, which can represent either a 0 or 1, qubits can exist in a superposition of both states simultaneously, allowing for exponentially more computational power and enhanced data security.
What are the critical sectors that Infleqtion’s quantum-enabled solutions aim to transform?
Infleqtion’s quantum-enabled solutions are poised to revolutionize critical sectors such as precision navigation and timing (PNT), global communication security and efficiency, resilient energy distribution, and accelerated quantum computing. By leveraging the power of quantum technology, these solutions have the potential to drive significant advancements in each of these areas.
