Dr TayBeng Kang is the Deputy and Program Director of CINTRA(CNRS-International-NTU-Thales Research Alliance) and a full Professor ofElectrical and Electronic Engineering at Nanyang Technological University. Heis the pioneer in Filtered Catholic Vacuum Arc (FCVA) technology and works overthe years in thin film technology especially in graphene, transition metaldichalcogenides, nanocomposites and carbon nanotubes. Besides this, his currentresearch is also including growth and application of 2D materials and theirheterostructures, fabrication and characterization of nanostructurred metaloxide for sensing and optoelectronic applications, thermal characterizationtechniques and waste heat recovery materials. To date, Dr Tay has publishedmore than 400 international journal papers with Google Scholar H index of 56. Hehas jointly-invented an industrial viable film deposition system based on FCVAtechnology and is currently the co-inventor of 28 international patentapplications. The research team was awarded the ASEAN Outstanding EngineeringAward and National Technology Award in 1997 and 2000 respectively foroutstanding R&D contributions on a new Filtered Cathodic Vacuum ArcTechnology.
As the electronic devices scale down, the size of the transistors isapproaching its limit. To follow the Moore’s law further, novel materials arerequired. With increasing device density, the thermal hot spot within aconfined space becomes inevitable. A more efficient way of removing the heatfrom thermal hot spots through the development of new cutting edge materials,technologies and techniques is required. For the future, smart life (smartcity, smart house and smart car), sensors, including optical sensors and gassensors are necessary. On the other hand, energy storage devices have been anarea of great interest with the growing demands for electric cars and mobiledevices. New materials for lithium ion batteries and super capacitors are inhigh demand.
The research in our group aims at assisting the development ofcarbon and transition metal dichalcogenide based devices used in futureelectronics for communication, sensing, thermal management and energy storageapplications. To meet the challenges such as integration with micro andnano-world technologies, design and characterization of new materials anddevices, our research activities are focusing on following domains: (1)material development and processes (amorphous carbon, carbon nanotubes,graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides, etc.), (2) thermal management and RFapplications, (3) detectors, and (4) energy storage devices.
