Visit by MOE

CA2DM was honoured to host Dr Benjamin Koh, Coordinating Divisional Director, Higher Education Group from Ministry of Education (Singapore), on 6 September 2017, where Dr Koh had the opportunity to understand the educational and entrepreneurial activities at CA2DM, visit our facilities and interact with our students.  

 

Visit by ST Kinetics

CA2DM had the honour to host the President of ST Kinetics, Dr Lee Shiang Long, and a group of distinguished ST Kinetics young engineers. During the two hours visit Dr Lee had the opportunity to hear about the scientific and entrepreneurial activities at CA2DM and also visit CA2DM's facilities. This visit opens new venues for collaboration between ST Kinetics and CA2DM.

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.

9th annual Recent Progress in Graphene and Two-dimensional Materials Research Conference is taking place in Singapore

The 9th annual Recent Progress in Graphene and Two-dimensional Materials Research Conference (RPGR2017) is taking place between the 19th to the 22nd of September 2017 in Singapore. 

RPGR is the premier conference focused on graphene and other novel two-dimensional materials in the Asia-Pacific region. This year the conference is jointly organized by National University of Singapore – Centre for Advanced 2D Materials and Phantoms Foundation.

Monochalcogenides enrich library of 2D crystals

The field of two-dimensional materials is possibly one of the fastest expanding fields in material science and condensed matter research worldwide. The interest on this class of materials was boosted by the fast development of ever more efficient methods to synthesize them at atomically thin level.

Gate-Tunable Giant Stark Effect in Few-Layer Black Phosphorus

Two-dimensional black phosphorus has sparked enormous research interest due to its high carrier mobility, layer-dependent direct bandgap and outstanding in-plane anisotropic property. It is one of the few 2D materials where it is possible to tune the bandgap over a wide energy range from the visible to the IR spectrum.

CA2DM Industrialisation Incentive Programme (IIP)

CA2DM is launching the Industrialization Incentive Programme (IIP) in conjunction with the Waiver Programme that was launched 2 weeks ago.

The IIP aims to provide incentives to CA2DM’s investigators with a potential to industrialize the applications of their research, thereby assisting them to start-up companies providing products related to this research. 

CA2DM Waiver Program

One of the main objectives of CA2DM is to provide access to top-notch facilities in the area of 2D materials to our members. In order to stimulate research in the area of 2D materials and to facilitate the access of our members to our facilities, we decided to create a new waiver program that will be available to all Assistant and Associate Professors who are CA2DM members.

Workshop on Electron-electron Interactions in Topological Materials

CA2DM and Yale-NUS will host a workshop on electron-electron Interactions in topological materials from June 28th to the 30th. For more information, click here.
