Recently, two of our undergraduate students have published a research paper in an academic journal as the first and third authors.
Mr Kah Jen Wo and Mr Madhava Krishna Prasad, under Dr Shubo Wang’s supervision, have published a research paper titled “Optical forces in coupled chiral particles” in Physical Review A as the first and third authors on 28 October 2020.
During their year-3 studies, Kah Jen and Madhava had participated in the Department’s Undergraduate Research Attachment Scheme and started working on the research described in the paper. With the guidance of Dr Shubo Wang, our Assistant Professor, they were co-awarded the “Best Poster Award” in the PHY Annual Symposium 2019 for their excellent achievements in this research. Kah Jen was also awarded the “Distinguished Final Year Project Award” in 2019/20 for this research.
The two students have just graduated from our BSc in Applied Physics programme* in 2020. Kah Jen is now pursuing an MSc in Applied Physics degree at the Delft University of Technology, Netherlands, while Madhava is currently pursuing a PhD at the Newcastle University, UK.
Our Undergraduate Research Attachment Scheme provides early research exposures for our students as young scientists. Through participation in the day-to-day laboratory work and/or engagement in an authentic research project setting, early research exposures enable students to identify areas of interest for further investigation.
