IBM Singapore and the National University of Singapore recently invited researchers to submit ideas that may benefit from the power of quantum computing. One of the three winning projects was led by IMRE researchers, Dr Leonid Krivitsky, Dr Junyi Lee and Dr Padath Anthur Aravind, who will be studying the quantum optimisation of non-linear optical elements. This could be used to achieve higher efficiency for non-linear optical devices for microelectronics and biomedical industries. The program provides an excellent opportunity for the IMRE team to extend its technical skills into the burgeoning field of quantum computing. The team will receive 1-on-1 mentoring for three months from the IBM quantum team to implement the ideas using Qiskit, IBM’s open-source quantum software development framework.
