CQT welcomes three new Principal Investigators

 

We are happy to welcome three new Principal Investigators to CQT! On 20 May, Yvonne Gao, Charles Lim and Marco Tomamichel join us as PIs and will be leading research groups in quantum computing, quantum communication and information theory. They bring to 24 the number of PIs working at CQT. Our new PIs will be recruiting research staff and students. Candidates with enthusiasm and relevant experience may contact the PIs directly or check our jobs listings for opportunities.

Presenting CQT's Annual Report for 2019

 

Looking back at 2019, our Annual Report reviews work from experiments in quantum computing to initiatives to strengthen the local research community - which already counts 44 groups nationwide. Read features on our research and get facts and figures on our publications, industry and outreach activites and awards. This 40-page report is available to download as a PDF. We hope you will find it both enjoyable and informative.

A new route to the ground state

 

The group of CQT’s Kai Dieckmann propose in Physical Review Letters a simple and effective way to coax pairs of disparate atoms towards their coldest molecular state. The creation of such ultracold polar molecules is groundwork for experiments in quantum simulation and fundamental physics. “What we're doing is control of the quantum world in a bottom up approach,” says Kai. “With molecules, we have degrees of freedom that are vibrational and rotational. Our work has shown a wonderful way of controlling these modes,” he says.

Trained for the workplace

 

“After the first couple of years of my PhD, I knew I wanted to go into something where I could apply the knowledge I had been picking up,” says Sambit Pal, who graduated in 2017 and is now Chief Technology Officer for a company he co-founded. Like Sambit, many CQT alumni have taken their scientific skills into new types of roles. Working across a wide range of industries, CQT alumni can be found in banking, consulting, and in technical jobs including data science and engineering. Hear their stories.

Making headway with a hybrid approach to quantum computing

The group of CQT Principal Investigator Dzmitry Matsukevich are the first to perform a conditional beam splitter gate that makes use of both the motional and internal states of ions. The team’s hybrid approach could be a route to doing bigger calculations using fewer physical bits.

To make an atom-sized machine, you need a quantum mechanic

Here’s a new chapter in the story of the miniaturisation of machines: CQT researchers and their collaborators have shown that a single atom can function as either an engine or a fridge. Such a device could be engineered into future computers and fuel cells to control energy flows.
