At Temasek Laboratories @ NTU, we recognize the importance of contributing and sharing of research finding and knowledge with the international research community. Some of our research highlights are listed below:
Mechanical response of lightweight hollow truss metal oxide lattices
The Advanced Material team developed a novel strategy for the fabrication of ultralightweight metal oxide hollow truss-based lattice structures having three levels of hierarchy for a large-scale fabrication using a very low cost and easy processible techniques. The fabricated structures were ~1% relative density (~99% Porous), were very lightweight, even which can be easily sustained on fluffed Cotton as well as on soft flower petalsThis work was recognized for Best Poster Award at ICMAT 2019 @Singapore, and the award was given by Nobel Laureate, Sir J. Fraser Stoddart.
Chosen-Prefix Collision Attack On SHA1 With ASICS Cluster
This work forced major browser vendors (Google, Apple, Microsoft, etc.) to move away from SHA-1 with a much earlier schedule than planned. This advancement led to the most important security protocols (OpenSSL, OpenSSH, DNSSEC, etc.), used in countless everyday applications, to release updates to mitigate this issue. This work also got some press coverage, for example:
Branch Prediction Attack on Blinded Scalar Multiplication
This paper was awarded the “Featured paper of the Month” for the month of May 2020 by the Editorial Board of the IEEE Transactions on Computers (TC). We prepared a brief video presenting our work, which can be found in the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gA4QoeVzYRg&feature=emb_logo. The paper also appeared among the most popular articles of IEEE Transaction of Computers for the month of May and June 2020.
Lightweight, Superelastic Boron Nitride/Polydimethylsiloxane Foam as Air Dielectric Substitute for Multifunctional Capacitive Sensor Applications
The open-cell porous BNF exhibits unique properties such as ultralight weight with densities measured below 1 mg/cm3 and their interconnected structure enable efficient isotropic phonon transport and enhanced mechanical stability. We further prepared a mechanically more robust BNF composite by conformally coating a thin layer of polymer, polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), throughout the foam. This paper is published in Advanced Functional Materials (Impact factor: 16.836).
