Major funding for quantum light source project announced

Our $2.7 million project with Defence Research and Development Canada was announced on Thursday, April 12 by Honourable Bardish Chagger, Minister of Small Business and Tourism and our local Waterloo MP, at  a press conference hosted at RAC. It is a collaborative project, headed by Jonathan Baugh, with co-PI’s Prof. Michael Reimer and Prof. Zbig Wasilewski. Dr. Francois Sfigakis is the project manager. He is a Research Assistant Professor (Chemistry) working in Baugh’s group.


The event was followed by tours of the Reimer and Baugh labs. In the picture above, MP Bardish Chagger and MP Raj Saini can be seen holding semiconductor chip samples. The story was also covered in local and national media. Here are links to some stories:
