Quantum in the news


Readers of Singapore newspaper The Straits Times found out why they should care about quantum physics, thanks to an opinion piece by CQT's Valerio Scarani. Valerio writes that quantum physics is good for more than inspiring movie plots. A grasp of quantum technologies will be important for the future of the economy. He highlights educational opportunities including the NUS Specialisation in Quantum Technologies for physics undergraduates and QUANTUM: The Exhibition now at Science Centre Singapore.

Ready to play the Quantum Game with Photons 2?


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.

Laser swap can cut cost for entangled photon production

Alexander Ling's team has found a way to make entangled photon pairs more efficiently, using a cheap broadband laser instead of a more expensive narrowband laser diode. As well as saving cost, the innovation could support applications needing high photon rates such as multi-user networks and space communication.

Maxwell’s lesser demon helps new quantum heat engine

CQT’s Stella Seah and Valerio Scarani and their collaborator CQT alumnus Stefan Nimmrichter describe a new model of a quantum heat engine.Their design, employing a ‘lesser Maxwell’s demon’, has the advantage of being more stable to fluctuations in the temperature of the environment.
