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.
The Most Cited Researchers. A/P Wang Qing is among the "The Most Cited Researchers" under the subject of "Energy Science & Engineering" in the ShanghaiRanking's Global Ranking of Academic Subjects 2016 by Elsevier. In this year's the ARWU ShanghaiRanking Global Ranking of Academic Subjects 2016, NUS has done well in some areas of Engineering (top 20 in 5 subjects; top 5 in 2 subjects), of which Energy Science & Engineering is ranked No. 3 while Materials Science and Engineering No. 16 globally.
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.
New EMA grant on energy storage awarded to MSE PI. A/P Wang Qing received funding support from Energy Market Authority (EMA) to develop 10 kW/50 kWh flow battery system for stationary energy storage. This project will develop and test-bed an innovative Condensed-phase Aqueous Redox-flow Battery (CARB) system with low cost, high energy density, and adapted to Singapore climate.
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.
