Quantum Computing

Opened in 2012, the Mike and Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum-Nano Centre offers some of the world’s most sophisticated laboratories for quantum science and nanotechnology research. Quantum research at Waterloo has the potential to change the way we share and secure information, and nanotechnology discoveries will influence everything from human health to alternative energy. These innovations include advances in cryptography that will keep our digital information safer and nano-materials than can help clean water.
