Deputy Prime Minister and Chairman of National Research Foundation (NRF), Mr. Teo Chee Hean, accompanied by NUS President, Prof. Tan Chorh Chuan, the Permanent Secretary of NRF and Public Service Division, Ms. Yong Ying-I, and the CEO of NRF, Prof. Low Teck Seng, visited our Centre on 26 September 2017.
During the visit, Prof Antonio Castro Neto, Director of CA2DM and Prof Barbaros Oezyilmaz, Deputy Director (Translation) of CA2DM’s Office for Industry and Innovation (OII), shared with DPM Teo on the achievements of the Centre and how we translate scientific research to industry applications by supporting researchers to validate and benchmark their technologies and working closely with industry partners to identify graphene’s unique properties relevant for their needs.
There was also a presentation and demonstration on CA2DM’s 2D materials-based magnetic sensor, which is developed and fabricated entirely within CA2DM’s Micro and Nano Fabrication Facility, using latest state-of-art tools such as Electron Beam Lithography. It is possibly the thinnest ever magnetic field sensor which allows it to be integrated effectively and customised into any industrial applications such as bio-medical fields, petroleum pipe-lines inspection gauges etc.
