Big-science facilities are often associated with fundamental research. You might picture scientists hunting for elementary particles, or searching to understand the nature of dark matter.

But some facilities – especially high-energy physics labs – are also turning their focus to practical applications of quantum physics. The opportunities for science, industry and society are vast.

That’s the theme of a new special issue of Physics World called “Big Science, Quantum Advantage”. Free-to-access now, the issue profiles some of the latest developments in Europe, the US and China.
