CQT Principal Investigator Loh Huanqian has won a 2018 L’Oréal Singapore For Women In Science National Fellowship. Only two of the prestigious national fellowships for women scientists under 35 are awarded in Singapore each year. Huanqian was named the 2018 Physical & Engineering Science Fellow. She leads a group working on the quantum control of ultracold molecules.
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 has signed a Memorandum of Intent with the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) to develop local technical competencies and promote the development of quantum technologies, in particular, quantum key distribution, in Singapore.
The S$18 million initiative between the Singapore and UK governments will build and deploy a satellite quantum key distribution (QKD) test bed. Under the collaboration, Singapore and UK will co-develop a 'QKD Qubesat', a satellite based on the CubeSat standard that will use a pioneering QKD technology from Singapore to test the secure distribution of cryptographic keys over globe-spanning distances.
Like watchmakers choosing superior materials to build a fine timepiece, CQT physicists have singled out an atom that could allow us to build better atomic clocks. The team report on the potential of the element lutetium in Nature Communications. “The ultimate performance of a clock comes down to the properties of the atom – how insensitive the atom is to its environment. I would call lutetium top in its class,” says CQT Principal Investigator Murray Barrett.
Probably the planet's fastest source of certified random numbers
CQT researchers and their international collaborators have set a record for the fastest production of ‘certified’ random numbers. Having truly random numbers is important for cybersecurity applications, simulations and in gaming. The work is described in a paper published 9 October in Physical Review Letters
Behaviour in cold atoms akin to a Foucault's pendulum makes it possible to study fundamental phenomena in quantum physics
Singapore's National Research Foundation is funding QEP, with CQT's Kwek Leong Chuan as a co-director, to drive translation of quantum science and technology
Celebrating two innovators under 35
Two CQT researchers have been spotlighted by MIT Technology Review as 'Innovators Under 35' in the Asia Pacific region: they are CQT's Robert Bedington and CQT alumnus Nana Liu, who recently took up a faculty position in China. Robert leads a team of quantum-satellite builders. Nana's research lies at the interface of quantum computing, security and machine learning.
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.
