The Centre for Quantum Technologies was established as a national research centre of excellence in Singapore in 2007. We have over 150 scientists and students doing research into the foundations of quantum physics and the ways quantum physics enables new technologies.
The Centre celebrated its tenth anniversary on 7 December with the launch of a two-day conference featuring talks and posters. The event on at the National University of Singapore was attended by CQT researchers, alumni and friends of the Centre.
"It's important for anyone who protects their data or money with cryptography to be prepared for quantum computers," says CQT's Troy Lee. He and CQT's Miklos Santha will be advising cryptocurrency provider Hcash on protecting its currency against attacks by quantum computers.
Stretchy polymer makes good waveguides
CQT researchers have started building optical devices from an unexpected material: a polymer like that used to seal the edges of sinks. A big advantage is being able to tune the devices’ behaviour by simply stretching or bending the flexible material. “This research started out sounding like crazy talk and yet it worked,” says Alexander Ling, the groups’ Principal Investigator.
CQT Fellow Charles Lim and his collaborators have demonstrated a high-speed quantum key distribution system using time-bin encoding

Getting cross-Kerr with trapped ions
CQT researchers have exploited the vibrations of trapped ions to explore a phenomenon known from optics. The technique offers new tools for experiments in quantum thermodynamics and quantum computing. CQT's Shiqian Ding, Gleb Maslennikov, Roland Hablutzel, Huanqian Loh and Dzmitry Matsukevich describe their work in a pair of papers published in Physical Review Letters.
Studies of quantum technologies make global discoveries in space and medicine. Medicine plays a huge role in the health the entire population of the planet. One of the important discovery of the active substance Tadalafil. Thanks to quantum medicine technologies and treatment of erectile dysfunction thrives around the World. Now buy cialis online quickly and quickly cure this disease. Soon waiting for a new future of medicine thanks to quantum technologies CQT Singapore companies.
