Giant photoluminescence in monolayer tungsten diselenide

A group of NUS physicists lead by Professor Andrew Wee have shown that giant photoluminescence (PL) enhancement is demonstrated by suspending the two-dimensional (2D) semiconductor WSe2 on sub-20 nanometre (nm) wide trenches in gold nanoarray substrates. Read more.

Result smashes size record for quantum correlations

In collaboration with researchers at the University of Basel in Switzerland, CQT theorists Jean-Daniel Bancal and Professor Valerio Scarani found evidence of Bell correlations in an ultracold cloud of about 480 atoms. The research is described in the paper "Bell correlations in a Bose-Einstein condensate" published 22 April in Science. Read more.

Team Discovers New Way of Transferring Magnetic Information

A team led by researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has achieved a major breakthrough in magnetic interaction. By adding a special insulator, they make electrons “twirl” their neighbouring “dance partners” to transfer magnetic information over a longer range between two thin layers of magnetic materials.
