10 Current news of Agency for Science, Technology and Researchrss
First full colour images at 100,000 dpi resolution
Researchers from A*STAR’s Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) have developed an innovative method for creating sharp, full-spectrum colour images at 100,000 dots per inch (dpi), using metal-laced nanometer-sized structures, without the need for inks or dyes. In comparison, ...
Researchers from A*STAR's Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) and their commercial partners have developed a new plastic that reflects just 0.09 - 0.2% of the visible light hitting its surface. This matches or betters existing anti-reflective and anti-glare plastics in the ...
The National Metrology Centre (NMC) of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) have jointly set up a national Metrology in Chemistry (MiC) infrastructure. Senior Minister of State for Trade and Industry and Education, Mr S. Iswaran ...
New method creates super-thin, high integrity, continuous metal lines that surpass today’s semiconductor industry requirements
Scientists from Singapore A*STAR’s Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE), University of Cambridge (UK) and Sungkyunkwan University (South Korea) have created metallic lines so thin and smooth that they can only be seen using powerful electron microscopes. This research will ...
Metals that dissolve in water successfully extracted, transferred into layer of organic solvent that floats on water
Nanostructured materials have garnered great interest worldwide due to their unique size-dependent properties for chemical, electronic, structural, medical and consumer applications. Singapore's Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) has discovered a new environmentally ...
'Green' method for sequestration and conversion of greenhouse gas
Scientists at Singapore's Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) have succeeded in unlocking the potential of carbon dioxide - a common greenhouse gas - by converting it into a more useful product. In the international chemistry journal Angewandte Chemie, the IBN researchers ...
Highly fluorescent gold nanoclusters for sub-cellular imaging have been synthesized by researchers at the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN), one of the research institutes of Singapore's A*STAR (Agency for Science, Technology and Research). Measuring less than 1 nanometer ...
Technology useful for catalysis, separation and drug delivery
Singapore's Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) has developed the first tri-continuous mesoporous material using a unique surfactant template. This completely new porous structure previously been predicted only mathematically. In the current Nature Chemistry, the IBN ...
Powerful antioxidant properties to fight diseases, efficient catalyst for converting biofuels
Scientists at Singapore's Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) have uncovered new properties of imidazolium salts (IMSs), which suggest that they could play a vital role in disease prevention and treatment. The report on the redox properties of IMSs was published in the ...
Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. ("MCI") opened "Mitsui Chemicals Singapore Technical Centre" in the building of the Institute of Chemical and Engineering Science ("ICES"), a research institute of a Singapore Government agency, The Agency for Science, Technology and Research ("A*STAR"). MCI and A*STAR ...
