A dramatic advance, especially in knowledge or method, as in 
Establishing a central bank represents a quantum leap in this small 
country's development. This term originated as quantum jump in the 
mid-1900s in physics, where it denotes a sudden change from one energy 
state to another within an atom. Within a decade it was transferred to 
other advances, not necessarily sudden but very important ones.
