NUS physicists have designed a bipedal nanowalker that can change its walking manner and direction by adjusting the length of its stride.
NUS scientists have discovered the mechanism involved when transition metal dichalcogenides on metallic substrates transform from the semiconducting 1H-phase to the quasi-metallic 1T’-phase.
CQT researchers have built a fridge that's just three atoms big. The rest of the equipment visible in this picture, with co-authors Jaren Gan (left) and Gleb Maslennikov (right), controls the atoms to make the fridge work.
Dr Cindy Ng and Dr Abel Yang received the IPS Cadi Scientific Award 2017 for their outstanding contributions in creating public awareness of physics in Singapore.
NUS physicists have developed a methodology to control the electromigration of oxygen atoms in the buried interfaces of complex oxide materials for constructing high mobility oxide heterostructures.
CQT researchers and their collaborators have set a record for the fastest production of ‘certified’ random numbers. The work is described in a paper published 9 October in Physical Review Letters. "To the best of our knowledge, we have currently the fastest source of certified random numbers on the planet," says Christian Kurtsiefer, Principal Investigator at CQT, who led construction of the experiment.
