Quantum machine learning and artificial intelligence, quantum-safe cryptography, and simulation of quantum systems all rely on the power of quantum computing.
A team of researchers at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) have taken a step closer to realizing the powerful possibilities of a universal quantum computer. The Laboratory for Digital Quantum Matter, led by faculty member Matteo Mariantoni, is developing technologies for extensible quantum computing architectures based on superconducting quantum devices.
New research chair in quantum error correction demonstrates continued leadership by IQC and Waterloo in the pursuit of a quantum computer and in the development of other quantum technologies.
WATERLOO, Ont. (Thursday, September 14) The University of Waterloo, in collaboration with Mike and Ophelia Lazaridis, has launched a new $8-million research chair to further solidify Waterloo’s leadership in quantum information research.

It’s well-known that more diversity among scientists will mean better outcomes for society.
And while passion will ultimately help scientists who belong to a marginalized group, women and others will also need a strong support network, role models and a good relationship with an academic supervisor, according to female scientists who shared their experiences at the recent Women in Physics Canada (WIPC) conference held at Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing.
Researchers experimentally demonstrated the creation of photon triplets, correlated by time, using a quantum dot molecule. This is the first step in generating entangled photon triplets in a solid state system, which could be useful for quantum communication protocols, as well as third-party cryptography.
