Oct 31, 2016 Prof. Hoi Kwong Lo and Prof. Joyce Poon show a quantum key distribution experiment with a silicon chip transmitter for the first time.
Prof. Hoi Kwong Lo and Prof. Joyce Poon show a quantum key distribution experiment with a silicon chip transmitter for the first time.
The work demonstrates the potential of using silicon photonics to dramatically lower the cost of quantum key distribution and bring it to the mass market in future. more...

A new heart for ATLAS - with help from Professors Richard Teuscher and Robert Orr
The world’s largest, most powerful, and most famous particle accelerator is getting a new heart, thanks to a collaboration between our very own Professors Richard Teuscher and Robert Orr and the Canadian arm of global manufacturer Celestica Inc. more...
Aug 08, 2016 T2K Presents First Comparison of Neutrino and Antineutrino Oscillations
T2K Presents First Comparison of Neutrino and Antineutrino Oscillations
University of Toronto physicists are key participants in findings reported by the T2K collaboration on a comparison of neutrino and antineutrino oscillations. Such comparisons between particles and their antiparticle counterparts are sensitive to violation of “CP symmetry”, differences in the behavior of matter and antimatter. more...
