quanTA: Centre for Quantum Topology and Its Applications

We live in an age of unprecedented technological innovation, ranging from powerful yet compact smartphones to medical diagnostic tools with impressive precision to pervasive artificial intelligence.  Yet, a lack of next-generation materials threatens to drive this innovation to a halt.  At the same time, emerging, powerful quantum devices such as quantum computers require wholly new thinking around the ways in which we understand and process information.


quanTA, the Centre for Quantum Topology and Its Applications, at the University of Saskatchewan is bringing together experts from mathematics, physics, chemistry, computing, and other disciplines to work on all aspects of quantum materials, quantum information and computing, and quantum technology development in general.


The problems at hand are at once mathematical, physical, chemical, and computational, involving theory, simulation, and eventually realization.  The work of quanTA is convergent science: we cross disciplinary lines to bring our collective expertise to bring quantum innovation to life.

We are grateful to the University of Saskatchewan (including the College of Arts & Sciences and Innovation Enterprise), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, the Tri-Agency New Frontiers in Research Fund, the Canada Foundation for Innovation, and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences for supporting quanTA.  We are a proud member of Geometry Labs United.
