Home > Press > Quantum devices: Building an innovative future for Canada: Get access to one of Canada's top quantum researchers at the AAAS Annual Meeting

Abstract:
Quantum information processing promises not only breakthroughs for computing, communications and cryptography, but it can also help us devise tools for navigating and controlling the nano-scale world. Sensors that operate according to quantum mechanics may achieve sensitivity, selectivity, precision and robustness far beyond their classical counterparts.

Quantum devices: Building an innovative future for Canada: Get access to one of Canada's top quantum researchers at the AAAS Annual Meeting

Boston, MA | Posted on February 17th, 2013

Canada Excellence Research Chair David Cory from the University of Waterloo's Institute for Quantum Computing will be in Boston for the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meetings.

"Today, we come close to realizing this quantum gain for practical sensors. The key next steps are to learn which quantum processes provide these benefits and how to engineer them," says Cory.

Take this opportunity to connect with one of Canada's top quantum experts and find out how the team at the Institute for Quantum Computing is advancing their work to build game-changing quantum devices.

David Cory will be speaking as part of the Canada press breakfast event at the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting in Boston. Members of the media can attend his session Sunday, February 17, at 7:45 a.m. in room 200 at the Hynes Convention Centre.
