Campaign Waterloo makes a $613.2 million impact on Canada and the world

Abstract:
Campaign Waterloo is building a better future by:

Building and controlling the world at the atomic level through quantum computing and nanotechnology. The Mike and Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum-Nano Centre (QNC), currently under construction, will house two leading research institutes: Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) and Waterloo Institute of Nanotechnology (WIN). IQC explores and tames the quantum universe, where the usual laws of physics do not apply, to transform computing and communications, and WIN deals with the fabrication and behaviour of materials, devices and systems in the size range of atoms or molecules, generally 100 nanometres or smaller, to create new structures, systems and devices with novel properties. QNC will be a state-of-the-art facility designed to foster cross-disciplinary collaboration between scientists in these cutting-edge fields to further establish Waterloo and Canada as global leaders in science and technology.
