CA2DM is seeking an intern from May to July 2017

Interested in designing and developing electronic circuits? The Centre for Advanced 2D Materials at NUS, one of the leading research groups in the world in the field of 2D research, is seeking an intern from May to July 2017 to work on industrial applications of graphene and other 2D materials.

Singapore ranked 6th among the world's most innovative economies

According to the 2017 Bloomberg Innovation Index released on Tuesday (Jan 17), Singapore is the 6th most innovative economy in the world.

CA2DM Labs receive Commitment Award for Safety and Health Performance

The award will be presented at the NUSSHA Ceremony 2017, on April 20th 2017, from 11am to 1pm, at the University Cultural Centre Theatre.

NTU, NUS push materials science frontiers

Singapore's two main research universities, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and National Unviersity of Singapore (NUS), are pushing back the frontiers of materials science.

CA2DM Director among world’s most highly cited researchers

Eleven NUS scientists, including CA2DM Director Prof. Antonio Castro Neto, have been named among the most prominent researchers in the world by Clarivate Analytics, the former Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters. The Highly Cited Researchers 2016 report revealed that the University also recorded the most number of highly cited researchers among research institutions in Singapore for the third consecutive year.

2D materials for all-optical photonic devices

There is an ultimate limit for electronic miniaturization imposed by electron-electron interactions and by the Pauli exclusion principle that forbids two electrons to occupy the same quantum state. This will eventually prevent the development of denser circuitry, as well as of multiplexed or parallel schemes using electrons as information carrier units. Photons, however, can share a same logical gate, without interacting among one another, unless mediated by the supporting material and its nonlinear optical properties.

Call open for Director's Senior Research Fellowship

CA2DM is launching a new competitive postdoctoral fellowship scheme and has an open call for its inaugural Director's Senior Research Fellowships in theoretical or computational studies on 2D materials. Visit the detailed announcement here.

Science review on 2D materials and van der Waals heterostructures

Writing in Science, leading 2D materials researchers estimate that research on combining materials of just a few atomic layers in stacks called heterostructures is at the same stage that graphene was 10 years ago, and can expect the same rapid progress graphene has experienced.

CA2DM PhD student wins Young Scientist Award in Lille, France

Kenry, a PhD student of Prof Lim Chwee Teck, won the Young Scientist Award in recognition of an outstanding paper on a Graphene Oxide tactile sensor contributed to the 2016 E-MRS Spring Meeting in Lille, France.

CA2DM crosses h-index = 50 in less than 5 years

In a brief span of 5 years, the Centre for Advanced Two-Dimensional Materials (CA2DM), and its predecessor, Graphene Research Centre, has just quietly passed a milestone in academic research. This is the h-index = 50 mark which signifies that 50 of its papers have at least 50 citations by peer publications. Putting things into its proper context, what this really means is that the work of CA2DM’s scientists is being acknowledged by their peers.
