Researchers have, for the first time, identified the conditions for theories of quantum gravity to be compatible with one of the paramount predictions of quantum theory and relativity: The Unruh effect.
In a new study led by researchers from the University of Waterloo, the International School for Advanced Studies and the Complutense University of Madrid a, solid theoretical framework is provided to discuss modifications to predictions of quantum field theory caused by the microstructure of space-time.
Les prix du doyen de la Faculté des sciences récompensent des étudiants de maîtrise à la Faculté des sciences qui ont un rendement exceptionnel. Nous avons rencontré Sainath Motlakunta, de l’IQC, plus récent lauréat pour le Département de physique et d’astronomie, afin d’en apprendre davantage sur ses recherches.
A Google Faculty Research Award propels quantum machine learning forward.
The Physics of Information lab, led by Professor Achim Kempf, was awarded one of the 2018 Google Faculty Research Awards. Kempf’s lab focuses on the physics of information, a wide research field that ranges from general relativity and quantum theory to information theory and artificial intelligence (AI).
The Dean of Science Award honours Master’s students in the Faculty of Science who demonstrate outstanding performance. We sat down with the latest winner in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, IQC researcher Sainath Motlakunta, to learn more about his award-winning research.
