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.
We are looking forward to many online talks happening in June. Our new Principal Investigators Yvonne Gao, Charles Lim and Marco Tomamichel will be giving their inaugural lectures on Thursdays, starting from 11 June. They will be speaking about quantum computing, quantum cryptography and quantum information. If you are interested in quantum computation and quantum simulation, the group of CQT Principal Investigator Dimitris Angelakis is organising a webinar series on the topic on Fridays. More information and registration details can be found at the link. Join us online!
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.
“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.
Collaboration with ST Engineering to develop quantum-resilient encryptors
ST Engineering and the National University of Singapore will work together to develop network encryption solutions that use quantum key distribution. The project will be led by CQT Principal Investigator Charles Lim as part of the national Quantum Engineering Progamme.
