A collaboration between the Institute for Quantum Computing and the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony led to the creation of “Quantum: Music at the Frontier of Science.” On September 30 — as part of the grand opening celebrations of the Mike & Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum-Nano Centre at the University of Waterloo — the concert will be performed inside the remarkable new building.
A chance encounter with the quantum realm took Michele Mosca's cryptography research in a very small but important direction. The University of Waterloo Faculty of Math graduate helped found Waterloo's cryptography centre and the Institute for Quantum Computing, and is a leader in the field of quantum information.
It’s a curious building for curious people, supported by an entrepreneur driven by curiosity. The Mike & Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum-Nano Centre on the main campus of the University of Waterloo is ready for its starring role — a gateway to a future shaped by incredibly small devices, advanced materials and powerful technologies based on the laws of quantum mechanics.
While fully working quantum computers may be decades away, the world is already seeing remarkable advances in quantum communications, encryption and extremely sensitive quantum sensors. Raymond Laflamme, director of the University of Waterloo's Institute for Quantum Computing, says Waterloo will continue to lead the way as the institute moves into the new Mike and Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum-Nano Centre.
