About this event

The Creative Destruction Lab - Vancouver proudly presents a Speaker Series event with Photonic's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Quantum Officer.

Join in on the interactive Zoom session to learn more about how light powers quantum bits (qubits) on silicon chips to create quantum computers that materialize solutions for previously intractable problems.

Photonic is at the forefront of designing next-generation quantum technologies in silicon. Photonic’s breakthrough results with silicon – particularly silicon photonic spins – have upended many conventional assumptions in quantum computing.

The hour will be split between a presentation from Dr. Stephanie Simmons and Dr. Paul Terry and a Question and Answer period facilitated by CDL Vancouver's Site Lead, Paul Cubbon.
