Scientists from NTU and Osaka University have developed a communication chip based on “photonic topological insulators” that may enable the next generation of ultra-fast wireless communications.
A team of students from the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (SPMS) has achieved an outstanding result in the International Mathematics Competition (IMC) 2020, earning 2 Silvers, 1 Bronze, and 2 Honourable Mentions.
Suppose you only have enough energy to produce a dozen photons — what can you use them to see? In a new theoretical paper, the ultimate detection limits imposed by the laws of quantum physics have been derived, solving a decade-old open problem in quantum theory.
A new form of carborane, a cluster of carbon and boron atoms arranged in an unusual flat pattern, has been isolated by chemists at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. This discovery has overturned a 50-year old set of theoretical rules central to cluster chemistry, paving the way to a new family of chemicals.
Edible bird’s nest, built by the aerodramus genus of swiftlets, has long been regarded as a quintessential health food in Chinese culture. There remain many myths, beliefs, and puzzles surrounding it that have yet to be thoroughly investigated by science.
Associate Professor Rei Kinjo, a faculty member at the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) has received the 2019 Distinguished Young Chemist Award from the Federation of Asian Chemical Societies (FACS).
The School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences congratulates the 2019 winners of the Nanyang Education Award and Nanyang Innovation & Entrepreneurship Award.
Malaria is one of the worst scourges ever known to mankind. The deadly disease, which is caused by plasmodium parasites transmitted by the female anopheles mosquito, remains a global public health threat despite concerted efforts to eradicate it. In 2016 alone, it infected 194 million people in Africa and caused 445,000 deaths. Read more
The winners of CAESAR, a major international cryptography competition co-founded by the US National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST), were announced on 20 February 2019. Of the six winning cryptography schemes, three were designed by researchers from Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore), led by Associate Professor Hongjun Wu and Associate Professor Thomas Peyrin.
