Singapore's National Research Foundation will invest $25 million over five years in a new Quantum Engineering Programme (QEP), it was announced on 17 September. CQT's Kwek Leong Chuan is co-director of the initiative, along with John Thong from the NUS Faculty of Engineering. QEP will build engineering capabilities in quantum secure communication, quantum devices, and quantum networks.
CQT's Alexander Ling was interviewed for the TV documentary 'Singapore Reimagined'. The hour-long show takes stock of Singapore's Smart Nation initiative, looking at how technologies including quantum computing and communication will change lives. Follow the link to watch the show on the Channel News Asia website. The footage from CQT's labs starts from 21 minutes in.
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.
CQT researchers aiming to protect the security of your future online transactions presented their work at the prestigious Crypto 2018 conference in August.The team's proposal for a new public key cryptosystem is also in consideration in the US National Institute of Standards and Technology search for schemes resistant to attack by quantum computers.
SG startups tapped to develop software for quantum computers
Two quantum computing companies in Singapore are among the "visionary startups" announced 7 September as partners of US hardware company Rigetti. Horizon Quantum Computing and Entropica Labs are both focused on software to take advantage of the power of quantum computers.
Experiments reveal new potential for cold atoms in quantum simulation
Behaviour in cold atoms akin to a Foucault's pendulum will make it possible to study fundamental phenomena in quantum physics. The approach also offers a sensitive way to measure the atoms' temperature. The research by the group of David Wilkowski was published 4 September in Nature Communications.
Check out the career opportunities available at CQT - groups across our Centre are recruiting at all levels.
"We can't ignore such a big rift in our understanding of how the universe works." CQT's Vlatko Vedral wrote for The Straits Times newspaper about the search for the theory of everything.
Congratulations to CQT's new graduates
Graduates of the CQT PhD programme - ten this year - move into academia and industry. "We are proud of the contributions that CQT students make to the Centre’s research as they work towards their PhDs. These young people who work at the frontiers of quantum technologies can do anything they put their minds to,” says Artur Ekert, CQT's Director.
