Mapping the dark universe

Dark matter and dark energy drive the growth of our Universe, but the true nature of this strange "dark Universe" is still a mystery. The Euclid space mission, launching in July, will provide new insights into the expansion and formation of the universe. Waterloo's Dr. Will Percival is a primary science coordinator for the Euclid mission and gave a public talk at the Kitchener Public Library last week.

With the quantum age on the horizon, scientists are working to develop quantum computers that will have a processing speed exponentially faster than today’s most advanced supercomputer. Building a useful quantum computer is one of the great engineering challenges of our time. In all implementations, qubits that are reliable, stable, and scalable are essential in this endeavor.
