Welcome to the LEAPS Conference “LEAPS meets Quantum Technology” on Elba, Italy.
Save the date: 25–28 May 2020.
This conference shall showcase where today synchrotron radiation contributes to the advancement of quantum technologies. The selected audience of this meeting will profit from quantum technology experts meeting the light source community in an open atmosphere at the spectacular setting on Elba island in central Italy.
Today, synchrotron radiation methods support quantum technologies in many ways. Quantum technologies present tremendous opportunities with the potential to lead to revolutionary changes in daily life. The progress has led to increased awareness of quantum technologies in basic and applied science, in industry and society. Quantum technology research is active in the fields of quantum computing, quantum communication, quantum sensing, as well as quantum materials and spans in each field the range from fundamental understanding to realization of devices.

The conference will bring together the latest developments in quantum technologies with those in lightsource development and instrumentation and identify opportunities for both sides. The conference will give impulses for further development of instrumentation and methods. Since different fields are brought together, an important part of the conference will be tutorial sessions. Specifically, the goals of the conference are:
• Presenting an overview of state-of-the-art quantum technologies and how currently X-ray probes contribute to this field.
• Providing a platform for the communities to interact and define needs and actions to allow X-ray based probes contributing to the progress in quantum technologies.
• Offering tutorial sessions allowing a deep insight in quantum technologies and in synchrotron radiation methods also for non-experts.
