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.
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.
