Featured on APS TV 2019 at the American Physical Society (APS) annual meeting in Boston, Massachusetts, the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) is at the hub of the Quantum Valley in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. The Quantum Valley is an ecosystem that brings together researchers, venture capitalists, startup companies and entrepreneurs to accelerate the commercialization of quantum technologies. Interim executive director Kevin Resch provides an overview of IQC’s four core research areas: quantum computing, quantum communication, quantum sensors and quantum materials, with interviews by researchers Crystal Senko, Joel Wallman, Ramy Tannous, Michael Reimer, and Wei Tsen.
Sir Anthony Leggett's lectures delivered during his 2014 summer lecture series at the Institute for Quantum Computing, University of Waterloo. PHYS 777 focused on topological insulators and superconductors and topological quantum computing.
Leggett, who won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2003, is the Mike & Ophelia Lazaridis Distinguished Research Chair at the Institute for Quantum Computing.
John Preskill is an American theoretical physicist and the Richard P. Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics at the California Institute of Technology. He is a respected pioneer in the field of quantum information and is praised for his ability to communicate complex theories such as entanglement. He is the founding director of the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter.
