ability and backward compatibility. This compression technology has been adopted as an international compression standard by the International Standard Organisation (ISO), a significant achievement by a Singapore institute as standards are typically dominated by big industry players such as Sony and Philips. This has also put the spotlight in this field of research on Singapore for the first time. The AAZ team is made up of Dr Susanto Rahardja, Dr Yu Rongshan, Dr Lin Xiao and Mr Huang Haibin.

  • The team of four from Infineon Technologies Asia Pacific successfully developed the worlds first end-to-end VDSL2 (Very High Speed Digital Subscriber Line) solution serving up to 8 different service subscribers for switching equipment, as well as the integrated modem for home users. Infineons VDSL2 product codenamed VINAX is the worlds first VDSL2 standard-compliant product. This Singapore innovation is the first VDSL2 product to be commercially deployed by Europe's largest telecoms group, Deutsche Telekom, providing real IPTV, video-on-demand services with HDTV quality. The Infineon team comprises Mr Jain Raj Kumar, Dr Sim Hak Keong, Dr Goh Chee Kiang and Mr Teo Tee Yong.

Young Scientist Award 2007

The YSA recognises young researchers, aged 35 years and below, who have shown great potential to be world-class researchers in their fields of expertise.

  • Dr Yu Fengwei from the Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory studied the fruit fly to understand how asymmetric cell division is controlled. His findings may potentially lead to the treatment of some neurological diseases such as Parkinsons disease.

  • Assoc Prof Ng How Yong from the Division of Environmental Science and Engineering, NUS, focused on developing novel membrane processes and enhancing membrane technologies for water treatment and reuse. He also developed microbial fuel cell technology for alternative clean energy production.'/>"/>
