  • PhD National University of Singapore 2004
  • BSc Jilin University 1999
Dr Ting YU received his Bachelor’s degree in Physics from Jilin University (China) 1999 and his PhD from the National University of Singapore (NUS) 2003. From 2003 to 2005 he was a postdoctoral researcher (Singapore Millennium Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship) at Physics Department of NUS. Since 2005 he has been a faculty member in Physics and Applied Physics Division of Nanyang Technological University (Singapore).
Research Interests
My research focuses on synthesis of nanostructures, assembly and manipulation of 1D nanostructure, and development of nanodevices:
1. Graphene: preparation, optical characterization, chemical/biological sensor, electrical devices
2. Substrate-friendly synthesizes of metal oxide nanostructures with controlled morphologies and patterns.
3. Wet-chemical method for fabrication of metal hydroxides and metal oxides nanostructures.
4. Field induced electron emission of individual nanowires or nanowire arrays
5. Electronic transport and mechanical properties of individual nanostructures
6. Nanowire FETs for nanoelectronics, nano-chemical sensors and nano-biological sensors
