Quantum technology has the potential for application in a wide range of disciplines, including vision science. Dr. Ben Thompson of the University of Waterloo’s School of Optometry & Vision Science recently spoke about how the technology has impacted his work at the launch of a new quantum research program.
The Quantum Alliance (QA) program is part of the University’s Transformative Quantum Technologies (TQT) research initiative. It brings together a collaborative community of researchers, world-class infrastructure and TQT’s unique Quantum Innovation Cycle for the advancement of impactful quantum technologies.
“If I had been told a year ago that I would have been using quantum technology in my research, I wouldn’t have believed it,” said Dr. Thompson at the program launch on December 5.
“Collaborating with TQT has opened up new, unexpected and exciting areas of research in vision science. Together we are exploring the power of quantum states and structured wavefronts to better understand disorders and diseases of the human eye.”
