  1. Sep. 9, 2021Groundbreaking Technique Yields Important New Details on possible ‘Fifth Force’

    A group of researchers have used a groundbreaking new technique to reveal previously unrecognized properties of technologically crucial silicon crystals and uncovered new information about an important subatomic particle and a long-theorized fifth force of nature.

  2. Sep. 7, 2021Simulating Quantum Particles on a Lattice

    A team of researchers at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) have developed a new quantum simulator that uses microwave photons in a superconducting cavity to simulate particles on a lattice similar to those found in superconductors or atomic nuclei.

  3. Sep. 3, 2021New research opens the book on entangled qubits

    Researchers have developed a new way to measure how quantum information behaves in correlated quantum systems that could be useful for understanding and improving quantum devices and quantum error correction codes.

  1. Sep. 21, 2021Book Talk with Chris Ferrie and Geraint Lewis
    Book Talk Advertisement

    We're teaming up with the Kitchener Public Library for a free, virtual talk on the book titled "Where did the universe come from?". The co-authors, Chris and Geraint, will talk about the fascinating exploration of the vastness of the universe. 

  2. Sep. 30, 2021IQC Alum Lecture Series: Corey Rae McRae

    Join alum Corey Rae McRae, PhD ’18, as she shares her career journey and talks about current research.

    Corey Rae McRae is the director of the Boulder Cryogenic Quantum Testbed, as well as a research associate at the University of Colorado Boulder and NIST Boulder. Her research focuses on materials and metrology for superconducting quantum computing. McRae grew up in London, ON, and received her PhD from IQC in 2018 from Matteo Mariantoni's group. She credits her research success to cold calling and not being afraid to get in over her head.
