Quantum Technology is based on laws of Quantum Mechanics, and works at atomic and sub-atomic level. This technology is expected to revolutionise the field of computing, communication and sensing. With well-established theoretical base, quantum technology is ready to be used for development of secure communication networks, exponentially faster computation and highly accurate and sensitive sensors. Applicability of the quantum technology holds a tremendous importance for military and national security. Taking that into consideration, DRDO would like to be at the forefront of the development of this technology.
DRDO Young Scientists’ Laboratory for Quantum Technologies (DYSL-QT), Pune has been established to forward the cause of Quantum Computing, Quantum Communication and Quantum Sensing technologies for various applications in India. We intend to herald the country in the current and upcoming domain of quantum technologies and associated technology frontiers.
The young scientists of this laboratory are currently doing extensive research and development in the quantum computing systems, quantum random number generators, Quantum communication systems and exploring quantum sensing technologies.
