What is a quantum? Why is it significant?

What exactly is a quantum, and why is it significant? The word “quantum” comes from the Latin word “quantus,” meaning “how little.” A quantum is a subatomic particle. It’s the minimum amount of any physical entity that we currently know. A quantum exists in two major phenomena – it acts as if it is in two locations simultaneously and it can be neither separated nor duplicated. These aspects have been applied in various fields of science and technology. Chinese scientists are applying quantum technology in communications to make information processing faster and make data secure and “un-hackable.”
