Prof Kar Seng (Vincent) Teng leads the Nanoelectronics Research Group and the Sensor Technologies Research Cluster within the Systems and Process Engineering Centre (SPEC) at the College of Engineering.
His research interest is in the study of nanoscale electronic materials and devices. This involves research of low-dimensional electronic materials, such as graphene, metal-oxide and nitride nanostructures etc, for development of devices that deliver major impact on healthcare, optoelectronics and energy technologies.
Prof Teng's expertise is in the designing, fabrication and characterisation of nanoscale electronic materials and devices, as well as controlling their properties through surface engineering for novel applications. His expertise also includes the development of scaling-up technologies for nanotechnology-based devices to ensure commercial viability, the use of scanning probe microscopy and other surface science techniques for the study of semiconductor surfaces and interfaces.
His research has been supported by awards from the NHS-National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), European Commission Horizon 2020, The Royal Society, Welsh Government, HEFCW, Sir Halley Stewart Trust and industries etc. He is the principal inventor on at least ten patents/patent applications and serves as a Scientific Director of a University spin-out company. Prof Teng also serves as an Associate Editor for the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) Advances and as technical committee member for a number of international conferences in the area of Nanotechnology and Material Sciences.
