About Nanyang Technological University

A research-intensive public university, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) has 33,500 undergraduate and postgraduate students in the colleges of Engineering, Business, Science, Humanities, Arts, & Social Sciences, and its Interdisciplinary Graduate School. It also has a medical school, the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, set up jointly with Imperial College London.

NTU is also home to world-class autonomous institutes – the National Institute of Education, S Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Earth Observatory of Singapore, and Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering – and various leading research centres such as the Nanyang Environment & Water Research Institute (NEWRI) and Energy Research Institute @ NTU (ERI@N).

Ranked 11th in the world, NTU has also been placed the world’s top young university for the last four years. The University’s main campus is frequently listed among the Top 15 most beautiful university campuses in the world and has 57 Green Mark awards (equivalent to LEED-certified), of which 54 are Green Mark Platinum. NTU also has a campus in Novena, Singapore’s medical district.

The NTU team will be involved in the growth of BN and their microstructural studies. The samples will be characterised using various techniques, including TEM, XPS, EDX, EELS and UV Spectroscopy.

About Cintra

CNRS International NTU Thales Research Alliance (CINTRA UMI 3288) in Singapore is a joint laboratory between CNRS, NTU Singapore, and THALES.

About 50 people are associated to CINTRA, with 3 main research thrusts:
  • CarTech: Carbon based nanotechnologies,
  • NWTech: Nanowire based nanotechnologies,
  • PMN: Photonics Materials and Nanostructures.

The CarTech group will be involved in this project. Its research areas cover the growth of carbon nanostructures and 2D materials, the fabrication and the modelling of carbon based components and characterization techniques, with state of the art processes and performance, for applications including nanopackaging, thermal management and sensors.
