MSE Researchers Find a Way of Making Ferromagnetic-polaronic Insulator at Interface. Prof. Chow Gan Moog and his collaborators demonstrate how thickness-dependent interfacial coupling in manganite film leads to the formation of a theoretically predicted ferromagnetic–polaronic insulator that is otherwise ferromagnetic metal in bulk form. The work has been recently published in Nano Letters, 2016, 16, 4174.
Mats with rapid bactericidal activity. Together with collaborators in BII (A*STAR), NTU and SERI, Dr Loh Xian Jun developed LPEI crosslinked mats which displayed rapid bactericidal activity through contact-mediated killing. Dr Loh was recently featured in the 12 Sep 2016 issue of Lianhe Zaobao, to introduce the breakthrough.
Six students from Class 2016 have obtained either Overseas or NUS scholarships to pursue their PhDs. Miss Aditi Khirbat and Mr Reyes Miguel Arnold Silverio have obtained PhD scholarships from Georgia Institute of Technology and Massachusetts Institute of Technology respectively. While Mr Justin Koh Junqiang, Mr K. Sivabalan, Mr Li Xinwei and Mr Yan Jiaxin have obtained full scholarships from NUS to continue their PhDs in our Department.
Congratulations to those who have had excellent academic performance in AY2015/2016. They have received their book prizes on 11 Aug 2016.
