Mike & Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum-Nano Centre

Constructed to the most stringent scientific standards — including controls for vibration, temperature, humidity, electromagnetic radiation and more — the Mike & Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum-Nano Centre (Lazaridis Centre) enables quantum information research at the highest international level.

Laboratories and technical specifications

  1. Superconducting qubits (solid-state and low temperature)
  2. Atomic & ion-trapping quantum information processing
  3. Quantum optics
  4. Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)/spin-based quantum information processing
  5. Quantum communication/cryptography

The laboratories are equipped with the following:

  • Temperature control: +/- 0.1°C
  • Humidity range: 45% +/- 3%
  • Vibration rating: VC-E (less than 3 um floor deflection/sec)
  • Acoustic rating: NC-30
  • Radio Frequency Interference/Electromagnetic Interference (RFI/EMI) shielding: Substantially better than 1mG peak-to-peak

The Lazaridis Centre celebrated its grand opening on September 21, 2012.
