Project description: The Engineering Design & Innovation Centre wishes to provide a facility that will support innovative products through technology development. Central to this is 3D Printing, which combines with other platform technologies (like microntrollers, laser cutting, CNC and assembled parts) to create numerous products and business opportunities. We need to know how to offer this within the NUS environment and outreach to potential beneficiaries and with the best chances of success.

Project description: This integrated framing system will provide the role of both the frame and the junction box, streamline the production process for PV modules. This approach is unique because the current state-of-the-art of PV module manufacturing requires three separate components and processes (the busses, the frame and the junction box) all of which are incorporated into the integrated framing system. The parts consolidation and improved process flow will reduce manufacturing costs for PV module manufacturers.

Project description: The novel sensor is based on surface plasmon resonance (SPR) coupled to Goos Hanchen (GH) effect, which allows the enhancement and direct measurement of GH shift. The novel sensor system will provide a new option for rapid, sensitive chemical and biochemical analysis, with many advantages over the current methods of heavy metals measurement in liquids. The product will allow monitoring with minimal interference from environment.

Project description: The process subjects Bombyx Mori (B.Mori) silkworms to a patented method and was scaled up and used to produce silk with increased strength (+49%), strain (+2.2%), breaking energy (+55.1%) and elastic modulus (+39%), when compared to normal silk. The “enhanced silk” can be spun and reeled into yarn, and then woven into fabric using a variety of weaving patterns.
