NTU assistant professor wins Young Scientist Award
Date:9/29/2009

A 34-year-old Physics lecturer from the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) received the Young Scientist Award for his research on metal oxide nanostructures and graphene, which are used to develop nanodevices and harvest energy.

Dr Yu Ting, who won in the Physical, Information and Engineering Services category of the Young Scientist Award, is an Assistant Professor with the Division of Physics and Applied Physics at NTU's School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences.

He has been studying and working in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology for the past decade. His research focuses on the fabrication of metal oxide nanostructures and graphene (a single layer of carbon atoms), the investigation of their physical and biochemical properties, as well as the development of nanodevices. He has developed a method for the synthesis of metal oxide nanostructures which is substrate-friendly, low-cost, and applicable on a large scale. This method is now widely used by other researchers working in the field, which may potentially lead to novel high-yield, low-cost metal oxide nanostructures for practical nanodevice applications.

In addition, Dr Yu's work on the assembly of nanowires using optical tweezers has attracted the attention of Harvard and Berkeley professors. Based on his method, a powerful probe has been developed for the study of nanophotonics (the study of the behaviour of light on the nanometre scale).

In his study of graphene, Dr Yu has achieved many "firsts". For example, his studies have led to new approaches for engineering the electronic structure and properties of graphene. This has received attention from the Condensed Matter Physics Group at The University of Manchester, widely regarded as the leader of the graphene research community.

Dr Yu's achievements have gained international recognition in the nanoscience and nanotechnology community. He has published more than 85 papers in top internat
