Principles of Quantum Physics in 6G Course by Tonex
Principles of Quantum Physics in 6G is a technology training course that covers the basics of quantum physics and how evolving concepts in this field are likely to influence the development of 6G.
Participants will examine the benefits and challenges of coupling 6G with quantum computing.
Attendees will also examine why quantum physics may be essential to providing the “secret sauce” necessary for many of the advanced concepts expected with the development of 6G technology.
Additionally, attendants of this cutting-edge course will learn the differences between traditional and quantum computing and how these differences benefit 6G.
Coupled with rapid terahertz (THz) waves, quantum physics may play an essential role in the transition from 5G to 6G technology, paving the way for smart systems and advanced computing.
The field of quantum communication has also been picking up steam in recent years and is likely to contribute substantially toward two of the essential criteria of 6G:
- Enhancing data security
- Enhancing reliability
Although it is too early to clearly identify what 6G systems will look like or how they will be designed, it is certain that 6G systems will support novel use cases with challenging key performance indicators (KPIs), which will be empowered by new enabling technologies and network architectures.
In parallel with the evolution of cellular systems from 5G toward 6G, quantum information technology (QIT) has been evolving rapidly in recent years in terms of quantum communications and quantum computing.
It is envisioned that QIT will enable and boost future 6G systems from both communication and computing perspectives. For example, secure quantum communications such as quantum key distribution can be leveraged to improve 6G security.
While much of quantum physics remains in the theoretical realm, IEEE has made if very clear that 5G will not meet all requirements of the future in 2030 and beyond and 6G wireless communication networks are expected to provide global coverage, enhanced spectral/energy/cost efficiency, better intelligence level and security, etc.
Consequently, according to IEEE, 6G networks will rely on new enabling technologies such as quantum computing technologies to meet these requirements.
All computers today, whether for industrial, commercial, personal or any other applications, depend on binary logic, where all numbers and states are represented by strings of 1s and 0s. Irrespective of how large or complex a computer is, it depends on transistor gates to implement this binary logic. Each gate is either OPEN for a 1 or CLOSED for 0; no other state is recognized.
A quantum computer is a computer that exploits quantum mechanical phenomena. At small scales, physical matter exhibits properties of both particles and waves, and quantum computing leverages this behavior using specialized hardware.
The quantum concept is valuable because it allows for more than just two states. It relates to interactions between particles at a tiny scale, so small that the rules of physics as we normally experience them no longer apply.
In quantum computing, the smallest unit of data is not the bit, but the qubit, based on something like the spin of a magnetic field. Like a bit, this can be set to one of two states – 0 or 1 – but unlike a bit, it is not as simple as just being on or off. Thanks to the quirks of the quantum level, a qubit can also be in any proportion of both states, called a superposition.
