Kar Seng (Vincent) Teng
Head of Nanoelectronics Research Group
College of Engineering
Dr Teng is an Associate Professor and leads the Nanoelectronics Research Group at the College of Engineering in Swansea University. His research interest is in the study of nanoscale electronic materials and devices. This involves the application of nanotechnology in electronics, which has major impact in healthcare, computer, photonic and energy technologies. His research includes the investigation of low-dimensional electronic materials, such as graphene, metal-oxide and nitride nanostructures etc., in the development of ultra-sensitive nano-biosensors for the early detection of diseases, short-wavelength lasers for ultra-high density data storage and nano-plasmonics for photovoltaic technology etc. Dr Teng has the expertise in the fabrication and characterisation of nanoscale electronic materials and devices, as well as controlling their properties through surface engineering for novel applications.
