Quantum Q&A with Melissa Henderson

En francais

Dr. Melissa Henderson is a researcher at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) and the University of Waterloos Department of Physics and Astronomy. Her research considers the scattering of neutral particles known as neutrons, and their relation to quantum materials.

In an exhilarating convergence of education and quantum information, Quantum for Educators hosted its 9th annual class from December 1 to 3, 2023. Hosted by the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo, this professional development workshop left an indelible mark on secondary school science teachers passionate about bringing the marvels of quantum information science and technology into their classrooms.

Sometimes, new scientific discoveries can be made from looking at well-known methods or experimental techniques in new ways. This is the basis for new research from Dr. Alan Jamison, a faculty member at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) and the University of Waterloo’s Department of Physics and Astronomy, and his collaborators at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

ETSI/IQC Quantum Safe Cryptography Conference 2024

ETSI and the Institute for Quantum Computing are pleased to announce the 10th ETSI/IQC Quantum Safe Cryptography Conference, taking place in Singapore on May 14-16, 2024. The event will be hosted by the Centre for Quantum Technologies, National University of Singapore.

This event was designed for members of the business, government, and research communities with a stake in cryptographic standardization to facilitate the knowledge exchange and collaboration required to transition cyber infrastructures and business practices to make them safe in an era with quantum computers. It aims to showcase both the most recent developments from industry and government and cutting-edge potential solutions coming out of the most recent research.

Last week, the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) welcomed over 20 promising postdoctoral fellows from around the world to Waterloo as part of the ninth annual Quantum Innovators workshop.

Split into two streams focused on theoretical and experimental research, speakers covered topics ranging from fault-tolerance and quantum cryptography to quantum defects in diamonds and atomic arrays, and many more topics spanning cutting edge quantum information research.

Online webinar through Microsoft Teams

The University of Waterloo and Mitacs will be holding a joint webinar on Thursday, November 23rd at 10am to share information about their new Globalink Research Award (Quantum stream), which provides funding for bilateral student travel with international university labs.

In this session, Amanda Green and Etienne Pineault, Senior Advisors with Mitacs, will provide information and updates on how to leverage Mitacs funding to build collaborative research projects with international university partners. 

Following the presentation, we will answer your questions about finding a partner, deciding on Mitacs eligibility and navigating program requirements (including how to work with our team to submit successful funding applications). Regan Child, International Grants and Contracts Manager with the Office of Research, will be on hand to offer assistance.

Join us for Quantum Today, where we sit down with researchers from the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) to talk about their work, its impact and where their research may lead.

In this special session, we’ll be joined by Joan Arrow and Özge Gülsayin of the Quantum Ethics Project, a team of researchers exploring the intersection of quantum and society. We’ll discuss how to advocate for the responsible and inclusive development of quantum technologies through education and research, and why an ethics lens is important in even the early stages of technological innovation.
