Celebrating light and light-based technologies
LIGHT Illuminated celebrates the United Nation's International Year of Light. In this interactive exhibition at THEMUSEUM you can learn about the value and importance of light-based technologies by exploring a black-light room, playing with colour mixing stations, and trying to get through a laser maze.

Quantum Molecular Dynamics
We will describe how the motions of atoms and molecules can be understood and even predicted based on quantum mechanical laws. Examples such as the behaviour of confined molecules and nano-scale superfluid will be used to illustrate some essential concepts. We will also present computational algorithms along with software tools used in the simulation of the quantum dynamics of molecular motion.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
