A national research centre of excellence

 

The Centre for Quantum Technologies was established as a research centre of excellence in Singapore in 2007. We have some 180 staff and students doing research into the foundations of quantum physics and the ways quantum physics enables new technologies.

Meet a CQTian: Angelina Frank

Meet Angelina, a PhD student currently working on building photonic hybrid networks in flexible polymers. She is fascinated by the scales at which quantum physics may play with the idea of certainty. “The transition from classical to quantum explanations of physical phenomena uncovers a new world of connections,” says Angelina. In this interview, she shares more about her life as a PhD student, and her interest in concept art and illustration.

Good choices from fewer qubits: new scheme solves optimisation problems efficiently

Encountered in industries from supply chain management to banking, optimisation problems that tax classical computers are a promising target for quantum computing to have an impact. A CQT team led by Principal Investigator Dimitris Angelakis has proposed algorithms that could bring that impact forward.

Meet a CQTian: Alessandro Luongo

Having got into hacking as a teen, Research Fellow Alessandro is now a quantum algorithms expert and author of an open-source textbook. On why he created a resource for quantum algorithms, he says, “The core thing for me was to give to people what I would have liked to have at the beginning of my PhD – all the mathematical knowledge that you need to understand the literature on quantum algorithms.” Hear more from Alessandro about the project and his path into quantum from hacking.
