In Person & Virtual
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.
The quantum internet will allow quantum-secure communication on a global scale. A new collaborative project between the UK and Canada, that has been awarded funding from the Quantum Communications Hub, will establish a key satellite link for quantum communication across the Atlantic.
Researchers find a new way to test quantum thermodynamics in the lab
A duo of researchers, including IQC PhD candidate Shayan Majidy, developed a mathematical tool to investigate quantum thermodynamics on existing quantum hardware. This research helps the efforts underway to bridge the gap between theory and experimental reality.
A satellite to test in-orbit laser annealing was sent into orbit from the International Space Station (ISS) today, marking an important step towards the realization of secure quantum communication using satellites and a global quantum internet.
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.
Quantum Today is an exciting new seminar series that pulls its themes from recently published scientific articles. Join us as we sit down in conversation with researchers to talk about their work, what’s the impact and where their research will lead to.
We're teaming up with Social Art for a fun night of virtual painting and quantum exploration.
Two projects most recently supported by the Quantum Quest Seed Fund (QQSF) aim to make quantum concepts more easily understood. The goal of one project is to explain how differences in cultural background influence perception and acceptance to the basic principles of quantum physics, while the other aims to use interactive digital storytelling to advance quantum literacy.
The Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo is proud to announce our membership in the Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada 50 – 30 Challenge. The 50 – 30 Challenge is a program between the Government of Canada, businesses and diversity organizations with a goal to achieve both gender parity and increased presence of underrepresented groups on boards and in senior levels of management.
A puzzle has baffled the battery industry for decades: certain materials used in the lithium-ion batteries that power our laptops, phones and cars store much more energy than theoretically expected.
