Quantum technologies is a comparatively new addition to the information technology and other computing sectors. It has a lot of potential to increase the processor clock speed of current day processors and nano-chips. The computing through Quantum Technology can replace current day ‘bits’ with Quantum bits or Qbits which are smaller in size but greater in computing capabilities. It depends on the quantum clocking system which are similar to 1 & 0 in binary coding. Two highest performing supercomputers in India, Mihir and Pratyush are based on quantum computing-based algorithms.
