IQC receives $15M from Government of Canada

The Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) received a tremendous boost from the Government of Canada in Budget 2018 with $15 million in renewed funding over three years.

On behalf of our community at IQC, I thank the government for its significant investment for research in Canada and solidifying opportunities for future generations.

Researchers bring high res magnetic resonance imaging to nanometer scale

Raffi Budakian with collaborators in his lab

A new technique that brings magnetic resonance imaging to the nanometer scale with unprecedented resolution will open the door for major advances in understanding new materials, virus particles and proteins that cause diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.

Researchers at the Institute for Quantum Computing used a new type of hardware and numerical algorithms to implement high-precision spin control, which allowed them to image proton spins with a resolution below 2nm.

New technique can capture images of ultrafast energy-time entangled photon pairs

Jean-Philippe Maclean works on his optics experiment

Scientists at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) have captured the first images of ultrafast photons that are energy-time entangled. The new technique will have direct applications for quantum cryptography and communication protocols, including the possibility for establishing highly secure communication channels over long distances.
