6 NTU projects awarded NRF grants

said: "Existing silicon-based power converters are limited in their capabilities to operate at high temperatures and high energy efficiency."

"I look forward to start work on the project, which aims to develop a new type of power converters based on the latest silicon carbide technology," said Associate Professor Tseng. "The new converters shall have higher operating temperature capability with less stringent cooling requirements, higher energy efficiency, and will be more compact and lighter in weight. This will result in hybrid electric vehicles with better fuel economy."

Increasing bandwidth

Associate Professor Liu Ai Qun's project 'Photonic Micro Electromechanical Systems (MEMS) Tunable Laser' will potentially have wide-ranging applications in biomedical technology and the telecommunications industry, for example, increasing the bandwidth for higher data rate transmission in Internet communications.

"NRF is doing the right thing. Its funding encourages and motivates researchers with innovative ideas," said Associate Professor Liu, who is with the Division of Microelectronics at NTU's School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. "I believe research and innovation should be the emphasis of Singapore for its next phase of development."

Glowing solutions

Associate Professor Sun Xiaowei's project aims to develop a new electro-generated chemi-luminescence (EGCL) technology with high efficiency and self-regeneration capability. EGCL is a kind of luminescence produced during electro-chemical reactions in a solution. "Solid organic light-emitting diode (OLED) has a reliability problem and bioluminescence cannot be powered by electricity," said Associate Professor Sun. "EGCL provides a solution to both it is liquid form with good regeneration capability and it uses charge recombination to emit light."

"EGCL has great potential in a wide range of applications like smart phones and electr
