The research group of Prof. Yu-Chen Cheng explores the science of laser physics and nanoscience. The team is developing cutting-edge technology for next generation bio-intelligent sensors and imaging.
The center has repositioned itself to meet the new challenges in minimization and multifunctionality of micro/nanoelectronic devices. In NOVITAS, they strategize their research to tackle these challenges through three research progammes: (1) Advanced Silicon Devices and Integration Technologies, (2) Compound Semiconductor Devices and ICs and (3) Nanotechnologies.
Founded by faculty from Biological Sciences, Chemistry, and Physics, the Centre for BioImaging Sciences's (CBIS) research is focused on the science and application of biological imaging by light and electron microscopy and the development of computational and microscopy-based methods and technologies.
In 2014, the National Research Foundation (NRF) of Singapore has awarded NUS with a S$ 50 M grant over the next 10 years in order to support the operational costs of GRC's labs and micro and nano-fabrication facility and the exploration, synthesis, and development of new devices based on two-dimensional (2D) materials of which graphene is the most famous, creating a new Centre for Advanced 2D Materials, directed by Prof. Antonio H. Castro Neto.
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.
The group's theme is to explore, innovate and translate mechanobio-inspired micro & nanotechnologies for biomedical applications.
The group is particularly interested in discovering novel nanobiology of nanomaterials. Some of this nanobiology is detrimental to the organism's well being and some is beneficial. The differentiation of either conclusion depends heavily on our understanding of how nanomaterials interact with biological systems. The group approaches their work from an observation initiated and hypothesis driven manner. From these findings, they aim to develop nanoparticle specific rules that drive certain cell effect. Understanding these rules helps to design better nanoparticles.
The group's research is at the interface of cell biology, biophysics, and advanced imaging technology. They develop and apply superresolution microscopy and advanced imaging techniques to understand how cells built complex nanoscale machines from basic biomolecular building blocks to perform vital biological functions.
The initiative's approach to the development and promotion of nanotechnology research is to optimise resources in creating strategic high impact research while retaining diversity in research areas.
The minor programme in Nanoscience is offered by the Department of Chemistry and the Department of Physics at the Faculty of Science.
