Mr Wong Zi Heng overcame adversity in spite of a cervical spinal cord injury. He is now pursuing a postgraduate diploma in education. He is featured in The Straits Times' Generation Grit: Paralysed at 21, his will to live was unwavering.
A research team co-led by Prof Andrivo RUSYDI and Prof ARIANDO, both from the Department of Physics and Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Institute (NUSNNI) NanoCore, NUS has developed a new methodology involving a combination of advanced measurement techniques to determine the influence of localised charges on the mobility of electrons at the oxide interface.
Now in a new study, physicists Dr. Raditya Weda Bomantara and Professor Gong Jiangbin have theoretically demonstrated that different edge modes of a topological time crystal can be braided and that it is possible to exploit their approach to generate the states necessary for universal quantum computation.
In collaboration with a team from University of Science and Technology of China, Prof Gong Jiangbin’s research team has now experimentally confirmed the theory and demonstrated that the rate at which the pump is switched on can be used to extensively control the amount of transported matter.
A team of Special Programme in Science (SPS) students comprising Year 2 Physics student: KIM Mu Young and three other Science students emerged as the top winner at the 8th International Natural Sciences Tournament (INST) held in Agra, India from 29 January to 3 February 2018.
NUS Science Valedictorian Wong Zi Heng, paralysed after suffering a cervical spinal cord injury, was recently conferred the Bachelor of Science (Physics) degree with honours, proof that he stared down the face of adversity, and won.
