Temasek Laboratories@NTU explores the frontiers in science and develops strategic technologies to enhance the defence and security of Singapore. TL@NTU forms part of the defence technology community in Singapore alongside DSO National Laboratories, Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA), Temasek Laboratories @ NUS and @SUTD and the local defence industry.
We have established five key research centres and also explore Key Emerging Technologies. Our mission is to undertake cutting-edge research in these areas and explore novel solutions that may be transited to our collaborators for further downstream development.
Centre of Hardware Assurance
The mission of CHA is to provide analysis capability from non-invasive to invasive techniques in vulnerability assessment, forensics and certification of hardware devices and components.
Centre of Microsystem Technology
The Microsystem Technologies Development Centre (MTDC) focuses on several key research areas including III-V compound semiconductor growth, device and Integrated Circuit fabrications, Photonics and System-on-Chip Circuit design
Centre of Communications and Signal Processing
The mission of CCSP team is to develop advanced communications and signal processing capabilities for the Singapore defense community. Our research focus includes advance techniques for urban sensing, receiver signal processing, detection and decoding of communication signals in practical wireless channels.
Centre of Advanced Materials
The Advanced Material Team in TL@NTU have extensive material development capabilities and system integration expertise over decade of experience. Our material synthesis repertoire includes (but not limited to) nano/micromaterials, high performance ceramics and composites, functional polymer and composite systems, nano carbon and boron nitride based materials.
Centre of Advanced Laser Technology
The TL@NTU Laser Research team aims to lead the frontier research in laser technology. Our research works mainly focus on the design and development of high power fiber laser systems operating at the near and mid infrared (IR) regimes.
Key Emerging Technologies
The Key Emerging Technologies (KET) teams carry out exploratory research to keep abreast with potential disruptive technologies that may have a significant impact on future defense systems, to develop a competitive advantage or to solve some extremely challenging problems encountered for our defense partners.
