We are pleased to announce that Rodney Van Meter from Keio University, Japan, will give CQT's October colloquium. He will speak on Engineering the Quantum Internet. The colloquium is being held as an online event, happening at 4pm Singapore time (UTC +8) on Thursday 29 October. Please register to receive zoom details.
We are pleased to announce that the Quantum Shorts film festival is back with a new call for entries! “There is no roadmap to explore unknown territories,” says CQT Director José Ignacio Latorre, who is also a judge for the festival. “As quantum physicists, we have to abandon prejudice and comfort to peer into the heart of the quantum. We invite filmmakers to do the same and share with us their journey.” Submit your films to the festival at shorts.quantumlah.org.
José Ignacio Latorre has assumed Directorship of the Centre for Quantum Technologies from 27 July 2020. On his appointment, José Ignacio said “I’m excited to work with the CQT team in the passionate and uncompromised search for knowledge and its applications, to make CQT and Singapore play a pivotal role in the new quantum era.” He takes over from Artur Ekert, who had led CQT since it was founded in 2007.
“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.
A sentient rock wants the laser off its face. A Venus flytrap is hungry for light. By adding just two mirrors, can you humour the rock and feed the flytrap? This puzzle is one of the first levels of the new Quantum Game with Photons 2, which features cute quantum components that follow accurate physics. Developed by a team of scientists, programmers and designers with support in 2019 from CQT, the educational game is now seeking players - and their feedback.

International Quantum Shorts film festival opens for entries
Can you show us the world through a quantum lens? The Quantum Shorts film festival returns with a new call for entries, seeking films up to five minutes long that draw inspiration from the quantum world. Quantum Shorts is organised by CQT and supported by partners around the world. It is free to enter and accepting submissions until 1 December 2020.
