CQT is proud to be a sponsor of QUANTUM: The Exhibition at Science Centre Singapore, open until January 2020. The exhibition brings visitors on a journey from quantum concepts through the history of computing and into the world of quantum technologies. It combines a travelling exhibition developed by the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo in Canada with brand-new displays on local research, including projects from CQT. Follow the link to read more about the exhibition on Science Centre's website.
Scientists at CQT are pushing the limits of today’s quantum technology, to reveal applications previously never thought of. Get a perspective on CQT's research in this feature by NUS News, with comments from CQT's Director and profiles of our Principal Investigators Alexander Ling, Loh Huanqian and Dimitris Angelakis. NUS News is published by the National University of Singapore, CQT's host university.
We're pleased to announce that Thomas Jennewein from the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo will give CQT's next colloquium. He will speak on "Novel avenues for robust free-space quantum communications", considering the vision for a quantum internet. He will also present an overview of the upcoming Canadian quantum communication satellite QEYSSAT. All welcome at S15-03-16 from 4pm on Thursday 29 August.
“We are all different nationals, we are entangled together with all the races,” reads an engraving on a panel of SpooQy-1, the quantum satellite built by the CQT group of Alexander Ling and deployed into orbit in June. The artistic payload on the scientific satellite stems from a collaboration between CQT and NUS Centre For the Arts. The quotation is from Mrs Santha Bhaskar, Artistic Director of the NUS Indian Dance group and a recipient of the Singapore Cultural Medallion. It comes from a play that explored messages Singaporeans might want to send into the Universe.
New book by CQT’s Valerio Scarani provides a guide to Bell Nonlocality
The academic title published by Oxford University Press is suitable for researchers from graduate level up. In 240 pages, it gives a logical introduction to nonlocality, from fundamental science to applications in the ‘device-independent’ certification of quantum technologies.

CQT's Loh Huanqian lauded by the World Economic Forum
Huanqian was selected as one of 21 members of the Class of 2019 Young Scientists who attended the WEF Annual Meeting of the New Champions in China in July. "I am extremely grateful and excited for the opportunity to bounce ideas off senior decision makers," she says.
