Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the work being done at Perimeter and in Canada’s “Quantum Valley” is vital to the future of the country and the world. The Prime Minister visited Perimeter Institute on April 15, 2016, to officially announce the federal government’s commitment to support fundamental scientific research at Perimeter.

Take a self-guided tour from quantum to cosmos!
The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) collaboration has measured polarized light spiralling out from the edge of supermassive black hole M87*, offering a glimpse of powerful magnetic fields shaping the black hole’s accretion disk and plasma jets.
Dark matter and other key properties of the cosmos could be explained by a new theory describing the big bang as a mirror at the beginning of spacetime, says Perimeter’s Director Emeritus
Perimeter researchers have established a new framework for determining whether any 2D quantum chromodynamic theory is gapped or gapless, offering insights into the dynamics of low-energy particle interactions that were previously out of reach.
How did the universe begin? How did it evolve to what we see now? There was a time when few people believed such questions could even be posed in scientific terms. Now, as increasingly precise instruments deliver their treasure trove of data, the answers may be within reach. On Wednesday, October 25, Perimeter Director Emeritus […]
Asimina Arvanitaki at Perimeter and Visiting Chair Savas Dimopoulos say there might be a way to use the Earth itself to find big bang cosmic neutrinos
A new protocol puts the black hole information paradox to the test in a laboratory – and promises to drive progress in quantum technologies here on Earth.
In July 2023, 200 physicists gathered at Perimeter, and 1,400 joined online, for the flagship annual conference of the extended string theory community.
Can mathematical methods used by Perimeter researchers inspire new approaches in climate, energy, and biodiversity?
44 high school students from 13 countries joined this year’s International Summer School for Young Physicists.
Perimeter Institute’s 2023 PSI Start interns hail from all around the world. Together, they found a community, and a chance to do research in quantum computing, condensed matter, and more.
