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.

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.
