By Ralf Ostner, Chinese-English-German translator, based in Munich, GermanyThe European Union, United States, China, Japan are prepari
ng for the so-called 2nd quantum revolution. The EU plans to invest 1 billion Euros in research for the next 10 years, starting in 2018. A broad community of industries, research institutes and scientists aim for Europe to stand at the forefront of bringing transformative advances to science, industry and society, by creating new commercial opportunities to address global challenges that provide strategic capabilities for security and seeds as yet un-imagined capabilities for the future. Europe's capabilities could lead to long-term economic, scientific and societal benefits for a more sustainable, productive, entrepreneurial and secure EU.Quantum physics was created in Europe in the first decades of the 20th ce
ntury by young physicists - Bohr, Planck, Einstein, Heisenberg, Schrdinger, Pauli, Dirac, Curie, and De Broglie. Europe
still plays a leading role with in regards to a broader research scope, linking fundamental and applied sciences and eng
ineering. The top institutions can be found Europe-wide, covering basic physics to electronics and computer science. 0.5
