Dr. John Donohue is a quantum physicist and science communicator, currently acting as the Scientific Outreach Manager at the Institute for Quantum Computing and University of Waterloo. He holds a PhD in Physics and Quantum Information, and has conducted research in quantum optics in Canada and Germany. At IQC, John works to break down quantum mechanics to its essence, through classes, workshops, activities, and exhibits. John is interested in how to “count” light by measuring photons, the individual and indivisible particles that make it up.

Thursday, March 5, 2020 — 9:30 AM EST

Due to the APS March Meeting being canceled, IQC has scheduled a mini-symposium for University of Waterloo students to give their accepted talks.

Talks are open for all to attend.

Nicole Yunger Halpern, Harvard University

Thermodynamics has shed light on engines, efficiency, and time’s arrow since the Industrial Revolution. But the steam engines that powered the Industrial Revolution were large and classical. Much of today’s technology and experiments are small-scale, quantum, far from equilibrium, and processing information.

Wednesday, February 26, 2020 — 10:30 AM EST

Special Seminar featuring Wenchao Xu, MIT

Photons interact weakly in vacuum. Finding an optical medium that manifests optical nonlinearity at individual photon level is fascinating, as it opens the possibility to build up all-optical quantum devices, and form novel quantum many-body states of lights.
