Travaillant sous la direction du professeur Michael Reimer, des chercheurs de l’Institut d’informatique quantique (IQC) ont mis au point un nouveau capteur quantique ayant recours à des nanofils semiconducteurs qui peuvent détecter rapidement et efficacement des particules individuelles de lumière sur une gamme sans précédent de longueurs d’onde allant de l’ultraviolet à l’infrarouge proche.
A new quantum sensor developed by researchers at the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) has proven it can outperform existing technologies and promises significant advancements in long-range 3D imaging and monitoring the success of cancer treatments.
Three of Canada’s most recognized centres in quantum information and materials research are collaborating on five new joint research projects. The three centres are all recipients of funding from the Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF).
Detecting chemicals in water with quantum sensors and developing new materials to enable topological quantum computing are among the goals of eight projects recently supported by the Quantum Quest Seed Fund (QQSF).
Researchers at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC), led by faculty member Michael Reimer, have developed a new quantum sensor based on semiconductor nanowires that can detect single particles of light with high speed, timing resolution and efficiency over an unparalleled wavelength range, from ultraviolet to near-infrared.
The Institute for Quantum Computing acknowledges that we are on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg, and Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our actions toward reconciliation take place through our research, teaching, learning, and community events, with guidance from the University’s Indigenous Initiatives Office.
