On Friday 16 August, Christopher Monroe will give a talk about trapped ion quantum computing at an event co-organised by CQT and SGInnovate. Please register to attend the evening talk: the link will take you to Eventbrite. Christopher is visiting Singapore as a member of CQT's Scientific Advisory Board. He is Bice Zorn Professor and Distinguished Professor of Physics and Fellow – Joint Quantum Institute, University of Maryland, and Founder and Chief Scientist, IonQ, Inc.
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.
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.
“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.
Congrats to a dozen CQT graduates!
The 12 students graduating from CQT's PhD programme have collectively contributed decades of effort to the Centre's research programme, co-authoring research papers on their way to completing their theses. They now take their expertise into a variety of roles, inlcuding postdoc positions in universities in Singapore and abroad and industry jobs.
Quantum SG - a network for Singapore's quantum research community
Did you know there are some 40 research groups in quantum technologies across Singapore, including those at CQT and other institutes of higher learning? Quantum SG is a new initiative by researchers to provide a network for the quantum science and technology community, helping to build a vibrant quantum ecosystem.
CQT Principal Investigator Loh Huanqian was selected by the World Economic Forum (WEF) for its Class of 2019 Young Scientists.

Scheme will certify solo quantum devices
The scheme makes use of a quantum property known as contextuality. Their findings were published 26 June 2019 in Physical Review Letters.
