Narrowing the gap between theory and practice for quantum secure communications

Researchers from CQT and their collaborators have developed two methods, one theoretical and one experimental, to protect the security of quantum key distribution (QKD), a technology that can be deployed in any communication network that needs long-term security.

Meet a CQTian: Joven Kwek

Laboratory Technologist Joven Kwek specialises in the fabrication of micro-sized structures using laser micro-machining. These fabrications then find applications in quantum experiments such as ion trapping. “I am only scratching the surface of this new technology and I have a lot to learn,” says Joven. When he’s not working in labs and cleanrooms, Joven likes to be out in nature and enjoys ‘forest bathing’ in Singapore's primary rainforests. Learn more about Joven and his work in our Q and A with him.

Popular science book presents the ‘counterfactual’ approach to reformulating physics

The Science of Can and Can’t by CQT Visiting Research Fellow Chiara Marletto introduces her work for general audiences. The book, published by Penguin Random House on 4 May 2021, delves into how counterfactuals, statements about which transformations are possible or impossible in a physical system, could be used to rewrite the fundamental laws of physics.
