Welcome to the Institute for Quantum Computing
The Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) is a scientific research institute at the University of Waterloo. The research happening at IQC harnesses the quantum laws of nature in order to develop powerful new technologies and drive future economies.
What is quantum computing?
Start with our Quantum computing 101 page. It's a quick start guide on quantum computing to help you understand some of the basic principles of quantum mechanics.
Delivering on the quantum promise
The Transformative Quantum Technologies (TQT) program at the University of Waterloo aims to advance the use of quantum mechanics from laboratory curiosity to an impactful device.

Liyuan Qiu, Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences, Tsinghua University
In this talk, I will introduce three non-equilibrium dynamics experiments in the anti-ferromagnetic spin-1 sodium condensate, including one experiment about the Kibble-Zurek mechanism in the first-order quantum phase transition and two experiments about Dynamical Quantum Phase Transitions.
In the Kibble-Zurek mechanism, we find out that not only the ground state matters in quantum phase transition but also the high excited states matter.
