Quantum technologies need a quantum energy initiative on PRX Quantum

The “Quantum technologies need a quantum energy initiative” position paper from Alexia Auffèves is published on PRX Quantum as of June 1st, 2022. It explains why all quantum technologies need to be addressed with an eye on their energetic consumption, including quantum computing, of course, but also quantum communications and cryptography as well as quantum sensing. The paper also proposes a methodology to assess the energetic balance of these systems: MNR for metric-noise-resources and how to balance it.
