Perimeter Institute has been invited by His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston to serve as a “Nominating Partner” for the Governor General’s Innovation Awards.
How important is imagination in physics? CBC Ideas host Paul Kennedy asks Perimeter Institute researchers. Listen to their answers in the CBC Podcast.
The International Summer School for Young Physicists (ISSYP) gives likeminded high-schoolers from around the world a chance to get hands-on with physics at Perimeter Institute.
Perimeter researchers Peng Ye and Zheng-Cheng Gu put forward a theory to create bosonic topological insulators by condensing the vortex lines in a Bose-Einstein condensate, and it could lead to “impossible” anyons on the surface.
Congratulations to the sixth class to complete PI’s “theoretical physics boot camp,” the Perimeter Scholars International (PSI) master’s program.
The most dazzling discoveries in science often arise when subjects – or problems – collide. That is the idea behind Convergence, Perimeter’s first alumni reunion, and it’s the focus of the latest issue of the Inside the Perimeter magazine.
Perimeter Institute is building a team of researchers and students to conduct leading-edge analysis of astrophysical data collected by the Event Horizon Telescope.
Could black holes be the universe’s own accelerator experiments, churning out signals that may unveil exotic new particles – perhaps even the elusive dark matter?
An experimental collaboration involving Perimeter postdoctoral researcher Daniel Brod shows that scattershot boson sampling works, and allows an almost fivefold increase in data collection speed.
Researchers have used a never-before-observed phenomenon called quantum distillation to turn an ultra-cold Bose-Einstein condensate into something even colder – and potentially more useful.
Correlation does not imply causation – unless it’s quantum. That’s the message of surprising new work from Perimeter Institute and the Institute for Quantum Computing.
In commemoration of International Women’s Day, Perimeter’s “Inspiring Future Women in Science” conference gave more than 200 high school girls a glimpse into the lives of women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
Perimeter Faculty member Pedro Vieira has earned a 2015 Sloan Research Fellowship for his explorations into the foundations of quantum field theory.
Perimeter researchers Yidun Wan and Ling-Yan Hung have taken an important step toward using topologically open surfaces like cylinders for quantum computation.
Latham Boyle wanted to enhance a proposed gravitational wave detector. Instead, he and Kendrick Smith may have stumbled upon a new type of crystal.
