Like watchmakers choosing superior materials to build a fine timepiece, CQT researchers have singled out an atom that could allow us to build better atomic clocks.

The CQT team report in Nature Communications that a previously neglected element - lutetium - could improve on today's best clocks. Lutetium (Lu) is a rare earth element with atomic number 71.

We are doing beautiful science!

Read in Singapore newspaper The Straits Times about research by a CQT team on rings of cold atoms. These systems could have applications in quantum computing or as sensors for rotational motion.

The latest talk in our video archive is Pedram Roushan from Google on "Superconducting qubits, the macroscopic atoms for building quantum processors", from a colloquium he gave at CQT in March.

Thanks Pedram for letting us share the video!

Just as an hourglass needs finer sand to make a more precise measurement of time, a classical computer needs finer time-steps, and in turn more memory, to make more accurate simulations. Quantum effects can provide a work-around, predict Mile Gu and Thomas Elliott at the Centre for Quantum Technologies and Nanyang Technological University https://buff.ly/2I6tojl
