The Quantum Horizons: Quantum Information Science (QIS) Research and Innovation for Nuclear Science award from the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Nuclear Physics has enabled a new collaboration between researchers who develop technologies for nuclear physics, quantum information science and high-energy physics. 

Yesterday, the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) held its first Colloquium of 2023, including an opportunity to connect to our community with pre-presentation coffee and tea, and a fantastic presentation featuring Dr. Stephanie Simmons titled Silicon Colour Centres.

Dr. Raymond Laflamme, founding director of the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo, has been named Chair of the National Quantum Strategy’s (NQS) Quantum Advisory Council. The announcement was made today by the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Canada’s Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry. Laflamme will work in close collaboration with fellow Chair Dr. Stephanie Simmons, Chief Quantum Officer of Photonic and IQC affiliate. 

 

Cyberattacks and data breaches are an invisible but growing threat that is becoming more commonplace against the landscape of technological growth and development. Quantum cryptography offers data protection in our evolving digital spaces.

The creation of a material that absorbs the majority, if not all light, would improve the effectiveness of health-related equipment. Michael Reimer, a faculty member at the Institute for Quantum Computing and researcher in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo, has set his sights on creating an artificially engineered material, known as a metamaterial, to do just that.
