Physicist Raymond Laflamme's Canada Research Chair renewed

Physicist Raymond Laflamme, from the Department of Physics and Astronomy and executive director of the Institute for Quantum Computing, saw his CRC renewed for $1.4 million over seven years.

His research on controlling quantum systems using quantum error correction is critical to the development of robust new quantum technologies. Harnessing the power of technologies at the atomic scale requires mechanisms to control these fragile, yet powerful behaviours.
