The Laser Brillouin group of Prof KUOK Meng Hau has simulated the dependence of the eigenmodes of skyrmions in ultrathin ferromagnetic films, on the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction and applied magnetic field. Special thanks to AIP, the work has been highlighted as an article in American Institute of Physics Publishing in the News, and as a press release in Newswise, entitled “The Synchronized Dance of Skyrmion Spins”.

Prof ZHANG Chun and his Ph.D. student, LIU Shuanglong together with research fellow, Dr Argo NURBAWONO, from the Department of Physics, NUS have developed a more general version of the popular and widely-used density functional theory (DFT) which can be applied to steady-state non-equilibrium situations. Prof Zhang Chun's work has received attention by Phy.org

A new spin on graphene electronics
A collaboration between Prof Su Ying QUEK from the Department of Physics, NUS and Prof John THONG from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, NUS has shown that "edge-contacted" device geometries in Ni/Co-graphene interfaces result in some of the lowest contact resistances reported to date.

NUS scientists in collaboration with BASF SE scientists have jointly developed a novel device structure for organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) that show unprecedentedly low contact resistance.
SINCE its inception a century ago, quantum physics has faced something of an experimental problem. The theory promises all manner of interesting and perhaps useful behaviours of particles in isolation, under rigidly controlled conditions.
NUS physicists, Prof Edward Teo and Dr Chen Yu have found a new type of black hole that can exist in anti-de Sitter space, whose event horizon is infinite in extent yet has a finite area.
