Perimeter Faculty members Natalia Toro and Philip Schuster have won a New Horizons in Physics Prize. The $100,000 award recognizes exceptionally promising young researchers and is awarded by the Breakthrough Prize Foundation, which evolved as an expansion of the Fundamental Physics Prize Foundation.
Perimeter Institute announces its Tensor Networks Initiative, aimed at supporting a new research approach with utility across a number of areas.
Time flies straight ahead like an arrow, never backtracking, and a Perimeter postdoc has co-authored a Physical Review Letters paper that offers an explanation as to why.
New research from Perimeter shows that two of the strangest features of quantum mechanics – entanglement and negative energy – might be two faces of one coin.
New work asserts that a key technique used to probe quantum systems may not be so quantum after all, according to Perimeter postdoctoral researcher Joshua Combes and his colleague Christopher Ferrie.
Raffi Budakian, a new Perimeter Associate Faculty member, bridges theory and experiment with cutting-edge approaches to glimpsing the world of the very small.
Our universe may have emerged from a black hole in a higher-dimensional universe, propose a trio of Perimeter Institute researchers in the cover story of the latest Scientific American.
Perimeter Associate Faculty member Matthew Johnson and his colleagues are working to bring the multiverse hypothesis, which to some sounds like a fanciful tale, firmly into the realm of testable science.
Pick up a pencil. Make a mark on a piece of paper. Congratulations: you are doing cutting-edge condensed matter physics. You might even be making the first mark on the road to quantum computers, according to new Perimeter research.
Three members of Perimeter Institute’s faculty have been awarded Discovery Grants as part of the recent round of funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
For his visionary contributions to accelerating leading-edge research in fundamental physics, Mike Lazaridis has been elected to the national academy of science in the UK.
The road uniting quantum field theory and general relativity – the two great theories of modern physics – has been impassable for 80 years. Could a tool from condensed matter physics finally help map the way?
The Waterloo Global Science Initiative has released the Equinox Blueprint: Learning 2030, a vision for redesigning high school education to best prepare students for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.
Canada’s leading news magazine, Maclean’s, has profiled a dozen of Canada’s future leaders – including Perimeter doctoral student Lauren Hayward.
Educators across the UK can now share the power, joy, and wonder of theoretical physics using Perimeter Institute’s award-winning classroom resources.
