The Nanoelectronics Group is hosted by the Nanoelectronics Laboratory (NEL), which was established in Sept 2006, mainly from the former Ion Beam Processing Laboratory. The group conducts, promotes, and nurtures interdisciplinary research and education activities in nanoscale science and technology. Its research activities are in five main fields: oxide based nanoelectronics; computational nanoelectronics; carbon based nanoelectronics; organic nanoelectronics; solar cells.
Established in 2010 within the National University of Singapore, the Graphene Research Centre (GRC) was created for the conception, characterization, theoretical modeling, and development of transformative technologies based on two-dimensional crystals, such as graphene.
Their mission is to investigate the natural structure-property-function relationship of cells and molecules so as to further understand the physiological functions and establish possible connections to human diseases.
Excellent students from all scientific and engineering, as well as biomedical disciplines are welcome to apply for NanoCore PhD Scholarships. Students whom we are recruiting typically are in the top 10% of their class and have shown the ambition and ability to immerse themselves in challenging, high impact research projects. We also highly welcome students who have entrepreneurial ambitions.
Graphene is a new age multifunctional material. As chemists, we are engaged in the growth, processing, derivatizing of graphene to make dna sensors, hybrids for solar cells, membrane for water purification. We hope to improve the quality of human life by researching on graphene, which we believe to be a fundamental building block for many useful devices.
