This corallimorpharian (Corynactis sp.) with tentacles and mouth protruding was found at Pulau Ubin as part of a study to establish the diversity and distribution of corallimorpharians in Singapore.
A ‘triangulene’ molecule, observed with a Scanning Tunnelling Microscope and a Non-Contact Atomic Force Microscope, was synthesised by NUS chemists fusing 15 benzene rings together. These molecules could be used in the development of next generation molecular spintronic devices.
Using theoretical equations, NUS researchers have predicted locations of atomic defects in the 2D material WSe2 (right) and confirmed their position (left). This breakthrough reveals the origins of certain light emission properties in WSe2 and may improve optical performances in other 2D materials.
