Nature article examines quantum computing possibilities

Creating a large-scale quantum computer is an ambitious but achievable goal requiring research in many experimental fields, says a recent article in Nature co-authored by IQC Director Raymond Laflamme. "As we approach this goal, we will grow accustomed to controlling the counterintuitive properties of quantum mechanics," write Laflamme, Thaddeus Ladd, Fedor Jelezko, Yasunobu Nakamura, Christopher Monroe and Jeremy O'Brien.

IQC director featured in Motivated Magazine

Innate curiosity is the driving force behind all great science, IQC director Raymond Laflamme writes in the new issue of Motivated Magazine" a publication that profiles exceptional leaders. "Curiosity is the force that drives everything I do," Laflamme writes in the 1,500-word article, "from getting my hands greasy under the hood of my 1979 VW van to manipulating the subatomic particles of the quantum world. And I love to inspire curiosity in others."
