Presenting CQT’s Annual Report for 2021

 

In his Director’s Letter for CQT’s Annual Report 2021, José Ignacio Latorre writes, “Quantum has been singled out as a strategic field by Singapore, and it shows. CQT must match this enormous national effort with excellence in research.” Our annual report looks back at our activities in the areas of science, outreach and industry as we coordinate and collaborate within the quantum ecosystem in Singapore. We hope you find it informative and interesting.

First demonstration of a secure quantum network with untrusted quantum devices

A team jointly led by CQT Principal Investigator Charles Lim and his collaborator Harald Weinfurter is among the first to successfully demonstrate device-independent quantum key distribution (DIQKD). The work, published in Nature, was one of three proof-of-concept DIQKD experiments reported on 27 July. “DIQKD is the pinnacle of secure key exchange,” said Charles, who is currently on leave of absence.
