Lighting up the quantum future

The field of quantum optics is helping to identify materials that will enable scientists to develop new quantum technologies that will change the world in almost unimaginable ways.  One branch of quantum optics involves diamonds!  As well as looking pretty, diamonds can be used as precision quantum sensors.  You’ll have a chance to see a quantum diamond in action as part of the road trip.
