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.

Researchers at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) have demonstrated a new method, called cycle benchmarking, to assess scalability and compare capabilities of different quantum computer platforms.
The finding leads the way towards establishing standards for quantum computing performance and strengthens the global effort to build a large-scale, practical quantum computer.

Rui Yang, Southern University of Science and Technology, China
In this talk Dr. Yang will talk about a few quantum devices studied during past years. In the first half, Dr. Yang will talk about his research on nanodevices made of 2d materials. The focus will be on the study of the magnetic impurities in graphene by phase coherent transport. In the second half, the talk will focus on Dr. Yang’s research on the superconducting quantum computation system. The focus will be on the study of a broad-band Josephson Parametric Amplifier.
