To bring quantum technologies to market takes both technical expertise and commercial acumen. We combine skills with industry partners to maximise the chances of success and impact. This page highlights projects and partnerships initiated or led by CQT Principal Investigators and research staff.
Supported by Singapore’s DSO National Laboratories, CQT Principal Investigators began in 2020 applied research projects: “Research Collaboration On Optical Ground Station For Satellite Quantum Communications” led by Alexander Ling, and “Assessment On Advanced Inertial Sensing Techniques For Navigation And Characterization Of An Atomic Gravimeter Platform” led by Rainer Dumke.
SGInnovate is a Singapore government-backed organisation supporting the local development of deep tech. They have a partnership with CQT to support quantum as one of their focus areas, involving talks, training and support for startups.
Title: Seeding Crystallisation in Time Date/Time: 08-Dec, 03:00PM Venue: Level 3 Seminar Room
Abstract: Continuous time crystals (CTCs) are phases of matter whose steady states break the time translational invariance of the underlying open system evolution in the thermodynamic limit. Since CTCs represent persistent oscillations, they can be considered to be analogues of limit cycle oscillators. Such oscillators are known to exhibit synchronisation, which is the adjustment of the rhythms of two or more self sustained oscillators. We will bring these ideas together to discuss how time crystals can be coupled and synchronised. This idea is analogous to the highschool experiment of seeding salt crystals in a supersaturated solution of water to induce symmetry breaking.
