Abstract: Quantum technologies provide new base capabilities which open up new frontiers in sensing, networking, and
computation. I will discuss the promise quantum systems have in fundamental physics research, from the direct
detection of dark matter to the limits of quantum memory to exploring the ability of gravity to entangle objects. I
will also highlight the many challenges to be overcome and the ways in which the nascent field of quantum
engineering can help tackle these challenges. In all cases, working with systems at the limits set by nature requires
high degrees of integration of complex systems to realize practical results.
