PROSPECT experiment will search for sterile neutrinos, thanks to $3M DOE grant

New Haven, Conn. – Buoyed by a $3 million federal grant, a Yale University-led experiment will explore key questions about the tiny particles called neutrinos — and potentially improve the way we monitor and safeguard nuclear reactors in the process.

The U.S. Department of Energy grant from the Office of High Energy Physics will be used to build a first-of-its-kind, short-distance detection device for the Precision Oscillation and Spectrum Experiment (PROSPECT), a project involving 68 scientists and engineers from 10 universities and four national laboratories.

Computing a secret, unbreakable key

WATERLOO, Ont. (Friday, May 20, 2016) – What once took months by some of the world’s leading scientists can now be done in seconds by undergraduate students thanks to software developed at the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC), paving the way for fast, secure quantum communication.

Researchers at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo developed the first available software to evaluate the security of any protocol for Quantum Key Distribution (QKD).
