Accelerating the Second Quantum Revolution with CERN Technology


Quantum technologies are set to revolutionise our world by applying the seemingly mysterious laws of physics at the smallest scales to real-world applications such as computing, communications, sensing and imaging.

Many of the extreme requirements faced by quantum technologies are shared with high energy physics such as superconducting materials, ultra-high vacuums, precise timing, and much more. For this reason, CERN has built up a wealth of expertise and specific technologies that can directly address challenges in the quantum industry.

Expertise and key competences for quantum technology

for superconductivity and ultra-high vacuums
for quantum communication
for precise time tagging of single photon events
for cold atoms and quantum communication
