The Centre for Disruptive Photonic Technologies (CDPT) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, recently secured substantial research projects on proof-of-principle demonstrations of fibre-integrated quantum devices for photon generation, switching, manipulation and detection and quantum and topological nanophotonics. The Centre, a part of The Photonics Institute at NTU, is a cluster of high-end nanophotonics laboratories and nano- prototyping and characterization cleanroom, develops new photonic technologies with outlook of 15+ years. In 2017 NTU was placed 11th in the world and the best in Asia in the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings. It was again placed the world’s best young university (under 50 years old) by QS for the fourth consecutive year in 2017. In addition, NTU was named the world’s fastest rising young university by Times Higher Education in 2015. Working at CDPT provides exceptional personal development opportunities in a vibrant international environment.
