Yes, we know that sometimes it feels like they just tack the word quantum on new technology and call it a day like we are all living in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Nevertheless, quantum technology is very real and is just as exciting. Our better understanding of the quantum world and handle on the principals will help us improve everything from computing to encryption.

Today in our coverage of new quantum technology a team of researchers from the Institute of Science and Technology Austria has harnessed the power of entangled photons to create the world’s first quantum radar. The new radar has a host of applications including stealthy radar.

So, of course, the first thing on your mind is probably how does it work? In short, the device was created when researchers created pairs of entangled microwave photons using a superconducting device called a Josephson parametric converter.
