Quantum Today is an exciting new seminar series that pulls its themes from recently published scientific articles. Join us as we sit down in conversation with researchers to talk about their work, what’s the impact and where their research will lead to.

Join Chung-You Shih, a PhD student at the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) and Kazi Rajibul Islam, a faculty member at IQC and in physics and astronomy at Waterloo in conversation with John Donohue. They’ll discuss their latest journal article about how their team has discovered the most precise way to control individual ions using holographic optical engineering technology.
