Alexander Ling

Associate Professor, Physics Dept

National University of Singapore

Alexander is an experimental physicist working on implementing quantum communications technologies over fiber and free-space. Alexander has led a team that deployed an entangled photon pair source on a 3-U CubeSat, called SpooQy-1, which was operational for over 2 years before the satellite re-entered Earth's atmosphere. He is Principal Investigator at the Centre for Quantum Technologies, Associate Professor with the Physics Department at NUS and Director of the Quantum Engineering Programme. Alexander is also co-founder of two quantum technology start-ups in Singapore, SpeQtral & S-Fifteen Instruments.

Space is critical to the development and deployment of new quantum technologies. Quantum sensors reach peak performance away from gravity's influence. On Earth, fibre optic losses limit secure quantum communication. Satellites can bridge this gap, enabling secure quantum links worldwide. This progress sets the stage for a Global Quantum Network, including quantum computers and Quantum Internet. Satellites are thus positioned as key nodes in our future Quantum-Connected planet. So, what tools might we be lacking to fully realize this extraordinary advancement?
