Data from a now-defunct X-ray satellite is providing new insights into the complex tug-of-war between galaxies, the hot plasma that surrounds them, and the giant black holes that lurk in their centres.
What once took months by some of the world’s leading mathematicians can now be done in seconds by undergraduate students thanks to software developed at the University of Waterloo, paving the way for fast, secure quantum communication.
Dr. Roger Melko is a pioneer and world leader in the modern multidisciplinary field of quantum many-body physics. He has made major contributions to our understanding of strongly interacting condensed-matter systems through large-scale computer simulations.
Researchers from the Department of Physics and Astronomy and the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo as well as the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) have, for the first time, converted the colour and bandwidth of ultrafast single photons using a room-temperature quantum memory in diamond.
