MSE Researchers discovered the secret compound dictating the operation of Li-air batteries. In collaboration with A/P Stefan Adams and overseas researchers, A/P Wang Qing and his team identified a new compound LiOOH, which unequivocally elucidates the battery chemistry of water-contaminated aprotic Li-air batteries. This work has recently been published in Nature Communications.
A/P Stefan Adams talked battery safety at Channel NewsAsia. A/P Adams appeared in a live interview at Primetime Asia of Channel NewsAsia on 23 Jan., and shared his expert view on Samsung's investigation results about their recent Note 7 mobile phone battery failures. The video clip of the interview can be accessed at http://video.toggle.sg/en/tv-show/news/jan-2017-primetime-asia/mon-23-jan-2017/473450
MSE Researchers developed a photoelectrochemical tandem cell employing natural photosynthetic proteins. Dr. Tan Swee Ching and his team have demonstrated an enhanced photocurrent output in the tandem cell incorporating genetically modified proteins and transparent conductive polymer in collaboration with A/P Ouyang Jianyong and UK researchers. The work has recently been published in Advanced Energy Materials.
Our heartiest congratulation to Prof. Ding Jun who has been awarded NRF CRP Grant. Prof. Ding received funding support to develop a brand new laser sintering technique for the fabrication of high-performance ceramic materials and components by breaking up the bottleneck of the conventional processing and currently available additive manufacture techniques for ceramics.
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.
