The QTE department at IMRE drives the development of long term capabilities aimed at the exploitation or quantum phenomena for new concept devices and translatable technologies. In particular, a major drive towards the second generation quantum devices harnessing the prowess of superposition and entanglement is in view. The QTE department also seeks to establish itself as a base for hosting and nurturing quantum scientists and engineers who are adept at translating quantum fundamentals into quantum advantage for industry applications.
The activities hosted include but are not limited to materials development, cryogenic measurements, and device fabrication. These are targeted at applications for quantum sensing, qubit platforms for computation and metrology to name a few. These talents and capabilities will equip A*STAR with the best-in-class fundamentals to innovate for the second generation quantum technologies and beyond, and help establish a viable long term quantum eco-system in Singapore.
