Physicists create new hybrid material in which superconductivity and magnetism interact via their particle-like excitations

An international team of physicists, led by Research Professor Christos Panagopoulos from Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore), has created a novel “hybrid” material in which superconductivity and magnetism interact via their particle-like excitations. This breakthrough could form the basis for a new generation of quantum computational hardware.

SPMS students won the Bronze Award at the University Physics Competition

In November 2020, a team of three physics students from SPMS took part in the University Physics Competition (UPC), an international competition for physics undergraduates. The team received a Bronze Award, given to teams placing between the top 17% to 46% amongst over 300 participating teams worldwide. The team consisted of Li Yifei, Stephen Natanael Basatua, and Tan Fei, who were all first-year undergraduate students at the time.

NTU Singapore scientists design compound that targets enzyme linked to autoimmune disorders and severe COVID-19

When the body detects a pathogen, such as bacteria or viruses, it mounts an immune system response to fight this invader. In some people, the immune system overreacts, resulting in an overactive immune response that causes the body to injure itself, which may prove fatal in some cases. Now, scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have created a compound that could help to reduce this overactivation without impairing the body’s entire immune response.

Finding Keys to the Most Secured Encryption Algorithm

The Advanced Encryption Standard, or AES, is one of the most widely-used encryption algorithms in the world, with applications ranging from secure web browsing to wireless networks. Since its introduction in 1998, numerous researchers have pored over its design looking for security flaws. Recently, an international team led by researchers from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) has found a way to attack a reduced-strength variant of AES. Although standard AES remains secure, this discovery is an important milestone for researchers seeking to probe the security of this important algorithm.

Experiential Learning Using Real-World Data: Quantum Black X CoS X Castlery

NTU College of Science (CoS) has recently established a partnership with Quantum Black, a McKinsey company. They specialize in analytics and will provide case study mentorship for some of our CoS students. For a start, Quantum Black and CoS co-designed a case study-centric course for the School of Biological Sciences (SBS) MSc in Biomedical Data Science programme. CoS will work towards expanding this partnership so that more of our students will benefit in the future.
