Making a mark for Women in Science (Part 2) – Meet NTU School of Physical & Mathematical Sciences PhD student Wu Lishu, who is a recipient of the 2020 Women in Engineering, Science, and Technology (WiEST) Conference Grant. Currently studying 2D materials, she sheds some light on her research, and her thoughts on women in science.
In third place of the CoS Science Communication Writing Competition is Mah Wai Lum William from the School of Physical & Mathematical Sciences! He wrote about “A magnetic approach to cancer treatment.” Congratulations, William!
Another winner of the CoS Science Communication Writing Competition Merit Prize, Mehedi Hasan from the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences!
Mehedi wrote about “Non-Abelian Artificial Gauge Field.” Congratulations, Mehedi!
Kon Wen Yu, an alumnus of the Physics and Applied Physics programme in NTU School of Physical & Mathematical Sciences clinched the Global Winner award in the “Mathematics and Physics” category of the Global Undergraduate Awards 2019.
Associate Professor Ranjan Singh has been elected as the Fellow of the Optical Society (OSA) for pioneering contributions to the field of terahertz science and technology through the development of active metamaterial platforms for sensing, ultrafast switching, and communication applications.

Researchers at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have shown that while cockroaches contain magnetic particles they do not use them for navigation, contrary to what was previously believed.
In May 2019, a team of four students from NTU participated in the PLANCKS competition, an annual international physics competition. This year, the competition was organized by the University of Southern Denmark and took place in Odense, Denmark. The NTU team placed 11 out of 34. Congratulations to all team members!
Physicists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, Denmark, have devised a method to turn a non-magnetic metal into a magnet using laser light.
Chemists have always been fascinated with elementary processes that happen at a molecular level such as molecular vibrations and chemical reactions. However, many of these processes occur at very short time scales and remain unknown because atoms are light and move rapidly.
