|T. P. Chen received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in physics (semiconductors and devices) in 1983 and 1987, respectively, both from Zhongshan (Sun Yat-Sen) University, China, and the Ph.D. degree from The University of Hong Kong in 1994. He is currently an Associate Professor in Division of Microelectronics, School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. From Feb. 1990 to Oct.1991, he was a visiting researcher at the Fritz-Haber Institute of Max-Planck Society, Germany. In the years of 1994 to 1997, he was a postdoctoral fellow in The University of Hong Kong and the National University of Singapore, and he also worked in Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing Ltd for a short period (June – December 1996). He was a senior scientist at PSB Singapore for about two and half years before he joined Nanyang Technological University as an assistant professor in February 2000.
He is the author or coauthor of more than 230 peer-reviewed journal papers (including over 80 papers in Applied Physics Letters, Journal of Applied Physics and IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices), over 110 conference presentations, and four book chapters. He has filed 9 U.S. patents and 8 Technology Disclosures.
|Current research interests include nanoscale CMOS devices and reliability physics; semiconductor and metal nanocrystals/nanoparticles and their applications in nanoelectronic and photonic devices; novel memory devices (nanocrystal Flash memory, RRAMs, WORM, 1T-DRAM, etc.); memristors and applications in Si neural devices and networks (electronic neurons, synapses, self-learning devices, etc.); Si photonic devices (Si-based light emitters, plasmonic waveguides, optical interconnects); and flexible/transparent electronic devices (transparent high mobility thin-film transistors, thin film memories, etc.).|
