NUS physicists, Prof Jeroen Anton VAN KAN and his collaborators have designed and successively micro-fabricated a miniature ion beam source prototype, paving the way to improve ion beam brightness by up to a million times.
SINCE its inception a century ago, quantum physics has faced something of an experimental problem. The theory promises all manner of interesting and perhaps useful behaviours of particles in isolation, under rigidly controlled conditions.
Both Dr Ng and Dr Yang are hopeful that the NASA recent discovery of TRAPPIST-1 will spur interest and raise awareness of the study of physics and its related research. At NUS, astrophysics - a branch of physics that seeks to explain objects and events observed in the sky - is offered as a specialisation under the Physics major programme.
A/P Tok Eng Soon is an experimental physicist who teaches in USP and the NUS Physics Department. He teaches the USP module “UPC2206 Nanoscale Science and Technology”, for which he received the USP Teaching Excellence Award in 2015 and 2016.
Congratulations to Prof. Gong Jiangbin, Asst/Prof. Utkur M. Mirsaidov, Asst/Prof Quek Su Ying, Dr. Yeo Ye and Ms Lee Lai Bay for receiving the IPS Awards 2017 for their outstanding research, contributions and leadership done in the field of Physics in Singapore
