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.
MSE Researchers Developed a High-performance Thermoelectric Polymer. Prof. Ouyang’s lab developed a novel and facile method to significantly enhance the thermoelectric property of PEDOT:PSS, with a world record optimal power factor. This work was recently 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.
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.
