Singapore’s Quantum Engineering Programme (QEP) has launched three national platforms to grow the country’s capabilities in quantum computing, quantum-safe communication and the manufacturing of quantum devices. The three platforms are hosted across the National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore), the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), and the National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC) Singapore.
The National Quantum Fabless Foundry (NQFF), hosted at A*STAR’s Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE), will support micro and nanofabrication of quantum devices in QEP’s three pillars of quantum computation, communication and sensing. It will also develop enabling devices related to Singapore’s strategic needs in the quantum technology ecosystem.
