The University of Ottawa has announced a new partnership with the Max Planck Society that will establish the Max Planck-uOttawa Centre for Extreme and Quantum Photonics. The facility, just the third Max Planck Centre in North America, will conduct research in photonics and optics and develop technologies to be used in advanced manufacturing and secure data transmission, among other applications. "The University and the Max Planck Society are both internationally renowned for research excellence in photonics. Deepening our ties means we will foster greater scientific exchange, produce highly qualified people, and develop solutions to real-world problems,” said Mona Nemer, uOttawa's VP Research. uOttawa News Release
