EvolutionQ, a leading quantum-safe cybersecurity company founded and led by Executive Director of the Institute for Quantum Computing Norbert Lütkenhaus, and IQC faculty member Michele Mosca, recently announced their latest partnership with SandboxAQ, an enterprise Saas company. This partnership was formed in relation to evolutionQ’s Series A funding and its recent grant of $7 million in funding, which will help organizations like SandboxAQ prepare for quantum computers.  

EvolutionQ, founded by Norbert Lütkenhaus, Executive Director of the Institute for Quantum Computing, and IQC faculty member Michele Mosca, has secured $7 million in funding for quantum-safe cybersecurity. EvolutionQ is looking to help organizations prepare themselves for quantum computers. Their Series A financing is led by Quantonation, a Paris-based, quantum technology-focused VC fund, with support from Toronto’s The Group Ventures, to “scale up” its quantum-safe cybersecurity tech.

Quantum physicist Christine Muschik was named a 2022 University Research Chair at the last University Senate meeting.

The University Research Chair award recognizes exceptional achievement and pre-eminence in a particular field of knowledge. Recipients can choose to receive an annual stipend or teaching reduction of one course per year.

An IQC faculty member and researcher in the Department of Pure Mathematics is among the latest winners of a University Research Chair.

William Slofstra, an assistant professor of pure mathematics and a faculty member with the Institute for Quantum Computing, works in the field of mathematics of quantum information and computation.

Developing quantum simulations of particle interactions and trapped ions are two Institute for Quantum Computing research projects broadening disciplinary horizons and delivering real-world impact. Waterloo scientists Christine Muschik and Crystal Senko each received funding through the Government of Ontario's 2022 Early Researcher Awards program.

In “Quantum Steampunk”, the exciting new book from Harvard physicist Dr. Nicole Yunger Halpern, the industrial revolution meets the quantum-technology revolution. While readers follow the adventures of a rag-tag steampunk crew on trains, dirigibles, and automobiles, they explore questions such as, “Can quantum physics revolutionize engines?” and “What deeper secrets can quantum information reveal about the trajectory of time?” Join Dr.

Researchers find a new way to test quantum thermodynamics in the lab
