Results of a study from the University of Waterloo and CNIB bolster the argument for changes in the way pharmacies print instructions to patients. The researchers tested prescription labels based on recommended guidelines and found a significant improvement in their readability over the ones in use now.
Researchers from the Department of Applied Mathematics and the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo have developed a versatile new way of controlling quantum systems that can affect the reliability of experiments.
To develop quantum technologies, it is critical to first build capabilities to control extraordinarily fragile quantum systems. The team from Waterloo found a way to control a quantum system without exposing it to vibration or other interference.
