Taking a step toward the realization of futuristic quantum technologies, a team of physicists from China and Germany has demonstrated a key element – an entangling gate – of a quantum teleportation scheme proposed more than 10 years ago. The entangling gate serves as a fundamental building block for applications such as long-distance quantum communication and practical quantum computers.

The Institute for Quantum Computing is now inviting applications for tenured or tenure-track faculty positions in all areas of quantum information research.

Positions are available for cross-appointment in the Faculty of Mathematics, the Department of Chemistry and the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Waterloo.


It was agreed by many that the existence of a (moderated) quantum foundations mailing list, with a wide scope and involving the broad international community, was long overdue. Now it exists, with currently about 500 subscribers.

Quantum entanglement which is the key ingredient for the storage and distribution of quantum information among the fundamental physical constituents, was first noticed as a key feature of the quantum world seventy-five years ago by Schrodinger. Since then, the long road of development of the theory and applications of entanglement has led to remarkable concepts and technological prospects. Along this long road have also spruced up many surprises, paradoxes and fascinating puzzles.
