Waterloo-led experiment achieves the strongest coupling between light and matter ever recorded

WATERLOO, Ont. (Wednesday, October 12, 2016) – Researchers at the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) recorded an interaction between light and matter 10 times larger than previously seen. The strength of the interaction between photons and a qubit was so large that it opens the door to a realm of physics and applications unattainable until now.
