Two new agreements of joint bilateral collaboration within the CINTRA laboratory : DGA/MINDEF and ANR/A*STAR
On Tuesday 22nd March, in presence of Mr. Jean Charles POMEROL (President of the University Pierre et Marie Curie) and Mr. Bertil Andersson (President of Nanyang Technological University), a signing ceremony has been held, within the CINTRA laboratory (CNRS International/NTU/Thalès Research alliance), in the framework of the establishment of two new R&D projects for a three-year period each.

The Signing Parties for the Nanoantenna project have established a joint bilateral collaborative Project under the framework of SAFARI (Singaporean and French Agreement for Research Initiatives) Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between DGA (Délégation Générale pour l’Armement) and DRTech, MINDEF (Defence Research and Technology Office, Ministry of Defence).
This Nanoantenna project is supervised by Dr TAY Beng Kang, Associate Chair of the NTU’s School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Amounting to $850K from DRTech, MINDEF, its purpose is to develop and characterize novel Carbon Nanotube (CNT)-based single nano-element radiation and nano antenna array for Electromagnetic (EM) applications.
The Signing Parties for the CERISE project, have established a project in response to the “Strategic International Cooperative Program” call for projects from the ANR (French National Research Agency) and the A*STAR (Agency for Science, Technology and Research). This project, supervised by Dr YOON Soon Fat, professor at the NTU’s School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, in collaboration with CINTRA and amounting to S$320K is on the creation of new types of photon-activated microwave switches using NTU’s patented semiconductor technology, targeted at long wavelength photonic systems applications.
