A new spin on graphene electronics

A collaboration between Prof Su Ying QUEK from the Department of Physics, NUS and Prof John THONG from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, NUS has shown that "edge-contacted" device geometries in Ni/Co-graphene interfaces result in some of the lowest contact resistances reported to date.

NUS and BASF scientists open a way to high performance organic transistors for flexible electronics

NUS scientists in collaboration with BASF SE scientists have jointly developed a novel device structure for organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) that show unprecedentedly low contact resistance.

The ART of Science Exhibition: All are Welcome!

The exhibition is opened to NUS community. ALL are welcome! Hope to see you there! Venue at University Hall, Level 2, LinkBridge, 10 Apr (Mon) ~ 11 Apr (Tue) 2017, 9am ~ 5pm.

Next generation fast proton imaging and fabrication

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.

THE ECONOMIST has a science cover page on Quantum Technology

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.

To solve its hardest problems, Silicon Valley Turns to Physicists

As the technological challenges of tech companies get bigger and badder, a crowd of physicists is moving in on the engineer headcount.

Black holes with unusual horizons

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.

A world beyond ours

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.

Hydrophobic Rose Petals and Green Tea Lattes: An Interview with Associate Professor Tok Eng Soon

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.
