Centre for Disruptive Photonic Technologies

CDPT 

The Centre for Disruptive Photonic Technologies (CDPT) is a world-leading research centre engaged in developing the next generation of optical and photonic technologies. Founded in 2012 by a research grant from the Ministry of Education (MOE Tier 3 Academic Research Fund), it hosts a suite of state-of-the-art laboratories for photonics research. The equipment hosted at CDPT include  a near-field microscope, FIB/SEM, time-resolved cathodoluminescence microscope, FTIR microscope, microwave anechoic chamber and near-field microscope, and more. The research staff at CDPT consists of over a dozen faculty members, 15+ postdocs, and 15+ graduate students.

In 2017, CDPT received a second MOE Tier 3 grant (the first research centre in Singapore to accomplish this feat), funding research into emerging areas of photonics research such as quantum photonics and topological photonics.

CDPT is a participating centre in The Photonics Institute, a network of photonics research centres at NTU.

Centre for High Resolution Instruments for Science

CHRIS 

The Centre for High Resolution Instruments for Science (CHRIS) is one of the world's best noise-free laboratories, dedicated to materials and condensed-matter research. The facility is mechanically and acoustically isolated, using a superposition of isolation stages mounted on the underlying "Jurong formation" bedrock. CHRIS hosts a complete system for growth, imaging, manipulation and analysis of novel materials, all within a single ultra-high vacuum space. This allows for extremely high-precision studies of the spin, charge and orbital degrees of freedom in materials, with the aim of engineering specific functionalities for science and technology.

Data Science & Artificial Intelligence Research Centre

The Data Science & Artificial Intelligence Research Centre (DSAIR) is a new multi-disciplinary research centre that aims to be a world leader in data science and artificial intelligence research. SPMS is one of the schools taking part in this centre. For more information, please visit the DSAIR website.
