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.

CA2DM-NUS team pioneers two-dimensional polymer breakthrough that could revolutionise energy storage

The novel ultra-thin two-dimensional polymer sheet, which is the organic analogue of graphene, heralds new opportunities for long lasting sodium rechargeable batteries 

A successful CA2DM workshop by V. Olevano and P. Trevisanutto

Between 30 March and 4 April, 2017, the CA2DM hosted a series of 4 seminars in the format of an informal workshop on ab initio theories for electronic excitations and spectroscopy

US-Singapore Summer Exchange Scholarship Programme

The US-Singapore Summer Exchange Scholarship Programme commemorates the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Singapore and the US in 2016. Jointly funded by the Government of Singapore and selected US companies and organisations, the Scholarship Programme will promote greater interaction and mutual understanding between the next generation of Singaporeans and Americans, by allowing recipients to attend a university summer programme in each other’s countries.
