IQC faculty member wins Early Researcher Award

Monday, August 24, 2009

Dr. Kevin Resch recognized by Government of Ontario for his work on chirped-pulse interferometry.

IQC faculty member Dr. Kevin Resch has received an Early Researcher Award from the Government of Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation to continue his work on chirped-pulse interferometry. Dr. Resch and his team recently developed a technique for laser-based interferometry that obtains the advantages of quantum interferometry, without the technological complexity. The original results were featured on the cover of Nature Physics in November 2008. This technique could be applied in next generation optical coherence tomography, a technique used to noninvasively image biological tissue for disease detection.
 
As lead researcher on this project, he will receive $140,000 from the ERA, which will benefit three IQC researchers.Minister of Research and Innovation John Milloy announced the award recipients on August 17 at McMaster University in Hamilton.
 
The Early Researcher Awards program is designed to support the work of emerging researchers and provide the resources to create jobs for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and research associates.

About IQC: Founded in 2002, the mission of the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) is to aggressively explore and advance the application of quantum mechanical systems to a vast array of relevant information processing techniques.

 
A part of the University of Waterloo, Waterloo Canada, IQC creates a truly unique environment fostering cutting-edge research and collaboration between researchers in the areas of computer, engineering, mathematical and physical sciences.
 
At the time of this release, IQC has 17 faculty members, 19 postdoctoral fellows and over 65 students and research assistants, as well as a support staff of 12.
 
The Institute for Quantum Computing acknowledges the support of the Government of Canada through Industry Canada and the Government of Ontario through the Ministry of Research and Innovation.
