CDPT is proud to announce that it has been selected to lead one of six projects constituting the four-year A*STAR Quantum Technologies for Engineering (QTE) Program with its proposal Nanophotonic quantum toolkit on the fibre and SOI platforms. With CDPT’s and other two projects assigned to NTU’s researchers, this success makes NTU a prime player in quantum photonic technologies in Singapore.
