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.
Miles Cranmer, a first-year physics student at McGill University, has earned Perimeter’s 2014 Luke Santi Memorial Award in recognition of his achievements in the classroom, in the lab, and in his community.
Perimeter Faculty member Lee Smolin and his collaborator, Marina Cortês, were awarded the inaugural Buchalter Cosmology Prize at the 225th meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Seattle, Washington.
Visiting Fellow Eduardo Martin-Martinez has been recognized for the potential of his research into relativistic quantum information.
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.
