Welcome to Transformative Quantum Technologies

The Transformative Quantum Technologies (TQT) program at the University of Waterloo aims to advance the uses of quantum mechanics from laboratory curiosity to an impactful device. Funded by the Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF), TQT aims to deliver on the quantum promise.

For over 50 years quantum mechanics has been the domain of mathematicians, physical scientists and engineers. Today, there are quantum devices that work outside of the lab and are ready for adoption in broad areas of society. TQT will develop new quantum devices and work with early adopters to explore potential applications.
