  1. Dec. 31, 20212021: A year of quantum

    As we wrap up another year in the quantum world, it’s amazing to reflect on the scientific discoveries and accomplishments.

  2. Nov. 11, 2021Canadian researchers achieve first quantum simulation of baryons

    A team of researchers led by an Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) faculty member performed the first-ever simulation of baryons—fundamental quantum particles—on a quantum computer.

    With their results, the team has taken a step towards more complex quantum simulations that will allow scientists to study neutron stars, learn more about the earliest moments of the universe, and realize the revolutionary potential of quantum computers.

  3. Nov. 5, 2021Quantum program for high school students gets a new name, gears up for hybrid learning

    There are a few changes coming to the Institute for Quantum Computing’s (IQC) outreach program aimed at high school students next summer. The unique enrichment program previously known as the Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS) that was held over nine-days in August will expand to two weeks of programming offered through a mix of both virtual and in-person learning in July, moving forward as the Quantum School for Young Students (QSYS)
