A new conference for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in quantum science aims to foster collaboration and provide a glimpse into the exciting research taking place in Canada.
Hosted jointly by the three Canada First Excellence Research Fund (CFREF) programs— the Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute (SBQMI), Institut Quantique (IQ), and Transformative Quantum Technologies (TQT)— the Canadian Graduate Quantum Conference runs June 20-22 at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver.
New $2.7 million project funded by Department of National Defence will develop technology for quantum radar.
Stealth aircraft in the Canadian arctic will be no match for a new quantum radar system.
Researchers at the University of Waterloo are developing a new technology that promises to help radar operators cut through heavy background noise and isolate objects —including stealth aircraft and missiles— with unparalleled accuracy.
The concept for his latest startup is something straight out of a superhero movie. Just like Batman used high-frequency sonar signals from millions of cell phones to visualize the location of villains throughout Gotham City in Dark Knight, entrepreneur Taj Manku is developing new software that could soon allow our cell phones to see in the dark.
