“One of the main objectives of QA2016 is to provide an opportunity for Alberta’s quantum and nano communities (including the University of Alberta, University of Calgary, University of Lethbridge, government, and industry) to gather and strengthen the ties between us. Another major objective is to identify and highlight quantum-nano activities in Alberta related specifically to advancing quantum technologies.
Nanoscience and quantum science and technology encompass a broad set of research topics, which often intersect. As these fields continue to advance, it is expected that their impact and overlap with each other will grow. Quantum Alberta has five research themes:
- Quantum foundations and quantum gravity
- Quantum chemistry and multiscale modelling
- Quantum materials
- Quantum nanoscience and technology
- Quantum optics and quantum information”
