QUANTUM TECHNOLOGY FOR ENGINEERING PROGRAM

Advancements over the past 25 years have largely been in understanding, proving and advancing the physics of quantum behavior. It gave rise to the burgeoning field of quantum information processing, in which the quantum phenomena is used to perform fast and powerful algorithms for information processing, generally known as a Quantum Computer.  

One of the hurdles to developing a quantum computer is the requirement to prepare, manipulate, and measure quantum bits with near perfect accuracy (fidelity) over a sufficiently long period (coherence time). This currently requires both exquisite materials understanding and an enormous infrastructure of control and signal processing electronics, photonics (optics, lasers, and detectors), and error correction algorithms

A*STAR is perusing a variety of quantum-related topics including quantum sensing, quantum computation, and quantum networking. These activities leverage on existing capabilities across various Research Institutes and Universities while growing A*STAR domain expertise into quantum technologies. 

The key effort in this area is organized in the Quantum Technologies for Engineering program (QTE), launched in 2017. A key strategic focus of this program is to leverage on the key capabilities areas where Singapore might genuinely make a difference in achieving scientific impact. The program is funded under the Singapore Research Innovation and Enterprise RIE2020 under the Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Domain and includes five projects and involves teams from ASTAR, NTU, and NUS.
