Experiment puts 80-year entanglement debate to rest

Meyer-Scott in the lab building the measurement setup

Researchers in Canada, the United States and Europe led by the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado and Institute for Quantum Computing alumnus Krister Shalm have ruled out classical theories of correlation with remarkably high precision. A group including Institute for Quantum Computing members Evan Meyer-Scott, Yanbao Zhang, Thomas Jennewein, and alumnus Deny Hamel built and performed an experiment that shows the world is not governed by local realism.

QCSYS 2015 participant one of 15 global finalists

John Fish

John Fish could end up travelling to the Silicon Valley later this week as the winner of the Breakthrough Junior Challenge. He is one of the 15 finalists out of more than 2,000 students from 86 countries, and only one of two Canadians to get this far in the annual challenge that invites students, ages 13-18, to share their passion for math and science with the world through video.
