Welcome to Ling research lab at Chemistry and Biological Chemistry at NTU, Singapore!


Our research programs in our laboratory combine chemistry, nanotechnology, and materials science approaches to develop functional nanostructures for novel catalysis, diagnosis and sensing applications. Our research activities involve nanoparticle synthesis, surface chemistry, self-assembly, nanopatterning, nanofabrication, materials and device characterization. We use molecular-specific surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) to perform study on the fundamentals and applications of catalysis, sensing, diagnosis and plasmonic studies at real time, within nanometer range of spatial resolution and spectroscopically.
