Quantum sensors allow us to measure with incredible accuracy, precision and selectivity. Future quantum devices that achieve these ultimate sensing qualities by harnessing the complexities of atoms, photons and semiconductors will play a critical role in improving applications such as medical technology, radar, geological exploration, molecular imaging and more.

We need new experimental techniques to build these devices. In this panel discussion, we’ll hear from three leading experts in the Waterloo region who are pushing boundaries to develop new sensing technologies based on quantum mechanics:

Michael Reimer, Assistant Professor at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) and the University of Waterloo’s Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, who is developing highly efficient photon detectors.

Kostadinka Bizheva, Professor at the University of Waterloo’s Department of Physics & Astronomy, who is working on new techniques in optical coherence tomography (OCT).

Troy Borneman, Senior Scientist at High Q Technologies, who is building sensitive superconducting resonators for medical sensing applications.
