Next CQT colloquium in person on 14 July

 

Join us in person for our July colloquium on "Precision Metrology with Photons, Phonons and Spins: Answering Major Unsolved Problems in Physics and Advancing Translational Science". We welcome Michael Tobar from the University of Western Australia to speak about precision and quantum measurement techniques being adapted in an effort to discover “beyond standard model” physics. This includes searches for dark matter and tests of quantum gravity. The talk will be held at CQT's Level 3 Seminar Room, starting 3pm.

Singapore’s quantum ecosystem gets a boost from three national platforms

 

Singapore’s Quantum Engineering Programme (QEP) has launched three national platforms to grow the country’s capabilities in quantum computing, quantum-safe communication and the manufacturing of quantum devices. They are the National Quantum Computing Hub, the National Quantum Fabless Foundry and the National Quantum-Safe Network. CQT researchers are contributing to research efforts across the national platforms.

CQT hosts QCamp for curious young minds

In June, CQT hosted 36 students for QCamp, our summer school on quantum physics and quantum technologies. One student called it “the highlight of my June holidays”, and another said “it was astronomical for a topic that speaks about qubits”. QCamp was organised by CQT PhD students Clive Aw, Clara Fontaine, Angelina Frank, Zaw Lin Htoo, Mark Myers, Peter Sidaja and Arthur Strauss, with support from CQT's researchers, students and staff.

New species of atom unlocked for ultracold atomic research

The group of Principal Investigator Travis Nicholson has adventured into a new group of the Periodic Table, realising the first magneto-optical trap for indium. “This is just the beginning – just demonstrating that indium can be trapped and cooled shows that it is a viable species for ultracold research,” says Travis, on the manuscript published as a Letter and Editors’ Suggestion paper in Physical Review A on 7 June. The paper was also featured as a research highlight in Nature.

Meet a CQTian: Subash Sachidananda

Research Associate Subash Sachidananda is an electronics engineer by profession. In Principal Investigator Alexander Ling’s group, he helps to design experimental setups and electronic modules for the group to do experiments in quantum optics. “It is a great experience to interact with creative and smart people from all around the world and see how they think and do their research,” he says. In his free time, Subash does simple drawings and cartoons as a fun creative outlet.
