Quantum Technologies: from Scientific Discoveries to New Applications
Lidar technologies for sensing distant objects, based on the phenomena of light scattering and absorption in transparent and translucent media, have been developing for several decades. Nowadays, lidars are a key element of robotic devices, autonomous cars, control and navigation systems for machine vision tools, mapping, diagnostics of the atmosphere and remote objects of various nature. The note provides a brief overview of some relevant areas of the use of lidar technologies, made on the basis of open press materials.

Quantum technology is an actively developing field. Quantum technologies open up new opportunities. Thanks to their unique properties, quantum systems can become a basis of a new generation of high-performance computing devices (quantum computers), information protection methods (using quantum cryptography), as well as high-precision measuring devices (quantum sensors and quantum metrological devices). The present review is devoted to the progress observed in the main areas of modern quantum technologies: quantum information processing, quantum cryptography, as well as quantum metrology and quantum sensors.
Keywords: quantum information processing, quantum cryptography, quantum metrology, quantum sensorics.
