International Year of Quantum Science and Technology UPSC NOTE


  • The United Nations has said 2025 will be designated the ‘International Year of Quantum Science and Technology’

  • In a statement, the body said the initiative will be “year-long”, “worldwide”, and that it will “be observed through activities at all levels aimed at increasing public awareness of the importance of quantum science and applications.”

  • The proclamation is the result of a resolution led by Mexico in May 2023 and which was soon joined by other countries. 

  • By November that year, almost 60 countries had co-sponsored the resolution and the UNESCO General Conference adopted it. 

  • In May this year, Ghana submitted a draft resolution to the U.N. General Assembly asking for an official proclamation, with the support of over 70 other countries

Importance & Applications

  • Many researchers expect functional quantum computers will have transformative effects on electronics, clean energy, and drug development, given their superior computational abilities

  • Important applications of quantum theory include quantum chemistry, quantum optics, quantum computing, superconducting magnets, light-emitting diodes, the optical amplifier and the laser, the transistor and semiconductors such as the microprocessor, medical and research imaging such as magnetic resonance imaging and electron microscopy.

  • Explanations for many biological and physical phenomena are rooted in the nature of the chemical bond, most notably the macromolecule DNA, which would benefit the humankind
