Macular degeneration diagnostic tool hidden in plain sight

Friday, June 19, 2020

An experiment that began by testing the properties of quantum entanglement has led to the discovery of a new diagnostic tool that could help optometrists detect macular degeneration much earlier than was previously possible. Professor Ben Thompson and Andrew Silva, a post-doctoral fellow at the School of Optometry and Vision Science, partnered with colleagues from Waterloo's Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) on this groundbreaking research.
