Answer 1: Max Planck was studying Ultra Violet Radiation in the problem known as the Ultraviolet Catastrophe. Answer 2: The equivalent of bits in quantum computing is called qubits. They exist in two states at the same time and the information is entangled. Answer 3: The technology that protects information by using the principle that you cannot observe a particle without changing it is called quantum key distribution, also known as quantum cryptography.
