Join Luca Dellantonio, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC), in conversation with scientific outreach manager John Donohue. They’ll discuss his latest journal article entitled A measurement-based variational quantum eigensolver published in Physical Review Letters on June 4. His team, led by IQC and Department of Physics and Astronomy faculty member Christine Muschik, has discovered a new and more efficient computing method for pairing the reliability of a classical computer with the strength of a quantum system. This new computing method opens the door to different algorithms and experiments that bring quantum researchers closer to near-term applications and discoveries of the technology.<--break->

Quantum Today is an exciting new seminar series that pulls it themes from recently published scientific articles. Join us as we sit down in conversation with researchers to talk about their work and its impact.
