I really enjoyed working with the SQO group.It is a very dynamic research group in which original ideas and unique opportunities are endless.During all my time with the SQO, I really appreciated how Ebrahim and the senior members of the group were always of great support. I must also mention that, while forming a very productive group, the SQO members never forget to have fun!

Jérémie is currently working at the Perimeter Institute.

jeremie_gbJérémie Gagnon-Bischoff started his undergraduate studies in physics at the University of Ottawa in September 2015. During the summer of the same year, he worked in Robert W. Boyd’s Quantum Photonics group through the Faculty of Science’s Undergraduate Research Scholarship (URS) program. His main task was to study the grating couplers technology.

Jérémie joined the SQO group in September 2015 under the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) scholarship; he then spent the second summer of his URS scholarship with the group. Now, as he is entering the 3rd year in the Physics-Mathematics Honours BSc program, Jérémie continues to work on projects on liquid crystals Pancharatnam-Berry phase optical elements and quantum key distribution (QKD) experiments.
