Kar Seng Teng
Dr Teng leads the Nanoelectronics Research Group in the College of Engineering at 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. Other research interests includes dilute magnetic semiconductor for spintronics and the use of scanning probe microscopy and other surface science techniques for the study of semiconductor surface and interface. He has been awarded research funding from NHS-National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), The Royal Society, Welsh Government, HEFCW, Sir Halley Stewart Trust and industries etc. He serves as an Associate Editor for RSC Advances and Editor for Fluorescent Materials journals.
