Quantum information science (QIS) is a combination of quantum science (which combines radio physics, condensed physics, and electronics) and information science (which combines computer science, information technology, mathematics, information studies, and documentation studies). Quantum information science (QIS) is actually an extension of quantum computing. Quantum information science (QIS) is mistakenly taken as quantum information theory, but it has several differences with this. Quantum information science (QIS) is mainly responsible for improved and faster acquisition, transmission, and processing of information. The 20th century is marked by three monumental achievements, namely, computer science, quantum physics, and information theory, which have not only stunned the civilized world but also ushered into a new world – a new paradigm of science and technology.

Background And Existing Literature

Practically, Quantum Information Science [QIS] is combination of some more subfield. The main field from Quantum Side is Quantum Physics, Quantum Mechanics, Quantum Computing and other hand the domain of Information side; which is combination of Management Science, Computer Science, Information Technology, Cognitive Science, and Operation Research and so on (Bouwmeester et.al., 1997; Ahn, 2000; Paul, 2013a).
