CDPT

The Centre for Disruptive Photonic Technologies (CDPT) was founded in December 2012 as a cross-school centre between the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (SPMS) and the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE), following the award of the first MOE Tier 3 grant in Singapore, with matching funds from NTU. CDPT is one of the two founding centres of The Photonics Institute (TPI) at NTU.

Since its inception, CDPT has served as a catalyst of fundamental photonic research in NTU, aggregating and supporting the research activities of more than 40 Investigators, Research Fellows and PhD Students at NTU and collaborators at top institutions around the globe. For more details, visit our People page.

CDPT research goal is the development of advanced concepts in photonics, nanophotonics in particular, as enabling tools for the development of technologies ranging from classical to quantum. For more details, visit our Programme page.

The Centre for Disruptive Photonic Technologies is located within the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, over ~1000m2 of prime laboratory and office space, with a series of state-of-the-art shared facilities for nanofabrication and nanocharacterization.
