SummaryModern quantum technologies are based on the concept of hybrid quantum systems, which couple different physical systems each optimized for a specific task, in order to achieve the most efficient operation of the coupled system. One important example of such a hybrid system is the coupling of light and magnetic materials, which can be used for both saving and transferring information.
