Grooming young scientists in Singapore

Research work on monolayer WS2 done by Belle Sow Miaoer, a student from NUS High School of Mathematics and Science, Dr Lu Junpeng (NUS) and Professor Sow Chorng Haur (NUS) was published and highlighted in the inside cover page of Advanced Optical Materials [1].

Monolayer WS2 is a promising material in optoelectronic devices. Decoration of WS2 using gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) produces surprising results. AuNPs exhibit preferential, site-selective decorations that reveal hidden heterogeneity within the WS2. In addition, the AuNPs enhance fluorescence intensity in selected regions and even activate fluorescence emission from previously dark regions. The photoluminescence spectra become sharpened and dominated by neutral excitons.

Welcome to the NUS Centre for Advanced 2D Materials and Graphene Research Centre

Established in 2010 within the National University of Singapore, the Graphene Research Centre (GRC) was created for the conception, characterization, theoretical modeling, and development of transformative technologies based on two-dimensional crystals, such as graphene.

In 2014, the National Research Foundation (NRF) of Singapore has awarded NUS with a S$ 50 M grant over the next 10 years in order to support the operational costs of GRC's labs and micro and nano-fabrication facility and the exploration, synthesis, and development of new devices based on two-dimensional (2D) materials of which graphene is the most famous, creating a new Centre for Advanced 2D Materials, directed by Prof. Antonio H. Castro Neto.

The new Centre for Advanced 2D Materials is now comprised of four research groups, as follows

Group Headed by
   Graphene Research      Professor Barbaros Oezyilmaz 
2D Materials Research Professor Loh Kian Ping
2D Device Research Professor Lim Chwee Teck
Theory Professor Feng Yuan Ping

Aiming at being a world leader in innovative and emergent materials science, with strong ties to the industry and academia, the CA2DM and GRC will directly contribute to a new generation of scientists and engineers who will have a permanent impact in the society and business enterprise landscape of Singapore, and worldwide (more).
