Whether you know it or not, quantum phenomena touches our lives each moment. Everything  around us physically is made of matter, from the air we breathe to the water we drink—even our own bodies are made of matter. Moreover, We are living in information age also and everything we do over the Internet today, from buying things online to banking transactions, is encrypted. But once a functioning quantum computer appears that will have the potential to break many of the cryptographic protocols that underpin modern communication and commerce as it will be able to clear bank accounts, completely shut down government defense systems – Bitcoin wallets will be drained. This raises questions about the security of our current digital infrastructure and the need for new cryptographic techniques that are resistant to quantum attacks. There is no doubt that quantum computing challenges our traditional ways of thinking about computation, information, and the fundamental nature of reality itself. The question may not be if quantum computing’s adoption will affect philosophy, but when. In fact, that question may be the wrong one to ask now. The real question is how can we prepare people for the philosophical shift of quantum computing to help them live better lives. How and Why Quantum-Enabled Photonic technology will change our future at the speed of Light? Finding the desirable way to protect optical quantum devices, which is crucial for real-world applications of quantum technology. Could quantum phenomena — derided as “spooky” — affect us at fundamental level? If possibly, can quantum effects could drive mutations in human DNA. If yes, this could change how we understand cancer, genetic disease, and even the origins of life. Photons are so ubiquitous in our daily lives that it is easy to forget it’s there at all. Daily, we are bathed in the rays from the Sun, our home fixtures, our urban environments, and countless other sources. At these larger scales, photons are governed by the familiar laws of classical physics, but if you shrink down to the scale of atoms, the rules of quantum mechanics take over. At this level, the universe is filled with all manner of quantum processes , such as quantum entanglement, whereby particles become synced together even across vast distances. Harnessing unique properties of quantum physics promises novel routes to outperform the current state-of-the-art in modern technology. Quantum-accelerated Photonics technology is a key enabling technology that is used to make other technologies faster, better and more accessible. communication and measurement.
