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.
As the technological challenges of tech companies get bigger and badder, a crowd of physicists is moving in on the engineer headcount.
NUS physicists, Prof Edward Teo and Dr Chen Yu have found a new type of black hole that can exist in anti-de Sitter space, whose event horizon is infinite in extent yet has a finite area.
Are you Interested in Physics at NUS? If not, you soon will be! Here's a quick video that'll help you see what we're all about.
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.
