(a)Research areas/interests: My primary research interest is focused on the laser interactions with materials. Comprehensive theoretical simulations, novel experimental processes and implementation of ultrafast & high sensitivity optical diagnostics are being carried out to investigate in detail how light interacts with materials. My desire to uncover the physics behind the laser interactions with materials has led me to conduct research activities that include dynamic laser ablation to remove substrate materials for surface nano-patterning and nano-materials’ synthesis as well as super-resolution nano-imaging and nano- lithography down to 20 nm via the combination of laser means with other advanced tools (AFM, NSOM and transparent particles). My secondary research interest is on applying my research outcomes to develop new techniques to solve the "Mission Impossible" issues in the field of: • Microprocessing and Nanofabrication; • Nanophotonics: Plasmonics, THz technology and Meta-materials; • Optical diagnostics for process real-time monitoring. Such engineering challenges include the removal of nano-particles as small as 50nm for surface cleaning, hybrid wafer singulation and thinning in liquid to greatly enhance the precision engineering speed and quality in green precision manufacturing approaches, as well as laser processing of thin and transparent substrates, which are the trends of current industrial development while conventional processing techniques are facing critical limitations. I strongly believe that laser precision engineering will become one of the key industrial pillars in the near future. My fundamental research on the laser interactions with materials and technical development on its industrial applications will generate great academic and economic impact. (b) Summary of Significant Contributions: I have been working in the laser interactions with materials and its applications since 1994 when I was offered a research scholarship in National University of Singapore (NUS). To this date (25 May 2013), I have co-authored 10 book chapters, 24 patents granted (1 commercialized), 300+ scientific papers in Nature, Chemical Reviews, Advanced Materials, Nature Communications, Nano Letters, Laser & Photonics Reviews, Biomaterials, SMALL, Biomacromolecules, PRB, APL, JAP and APA etc., and 40+ plenary/keynote/invited talks in international conferences. I am actively contributing in the international academic societies as the member of organizing committees for Laser Precision Micromachining International Conference (2001~2013), International Symposium of Functional Materials (2005, 2007 and 2014), Chair of International Workshop of Plasmonics and Applications in Nanotechnologies (2006), Chair of Conference on Laser Ablation (2009) and Chair of Asia-Pacific Near- field Optics Conference (2013). I am also serving as the Associate Editor of Science China, International Journal of Optomechatronics, Editor of Laser Micro/nanoengineering, Guest Editor of Applied Physics A and Industrial Laser Users. I am the Simon Industrial and Professional Fellow of the University of Manchester, UK; Guest Professor of University of Science & Technology of China (USTC); Guest Professor of Xiamen University and Visiting Professor of Institute of Optoelectronics (IOE), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). In 2012, I was elected as the Fellow of Optical Society of America (OSA) and the Fellow of the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE) for my achievements and outstanding contributions to Laser Interactions with Materials for the Applications in Microprocessing and Nanofabrication. My major research contributions can be highlighted as follows: • Laser interactions with materials: My research team in NUS stands at the forefront of academic research in the world on ultrafast laser irradiation, super-resolution & high sensitivity optical diagnostics and hybrid laser processing. As an example, we studied in detail how light behaves as it passes through a transparent particle using Mie theory. We analyzed comprehensively how light energy is localized through this dielectric particle to achieve super-resolution focusing at 1/10~1/20 of incident light wavelength, far below the optical diffraction limit of 1/2 of the light wavelength in far field. My team is also pioneering in its work to achieve 20 nm resolution surface patterning and 50 nm resolution imaging. Recently, attributed to our strong research expertise and novel proposed approaches, my team was successful in applying National Research Foundation (NRF) Competitive Research Program (CRP) funding (CRP is one of the top national research funding schemes with total research grant up to S$10M) to develop super-resolution and high-sensitivity optical nanoscopes. • Laser Microprocessing and Nanofabrication: Laser is a non-contact, mature, high-speed and large-area precision engineering tool. It has been extensively applied in industries for marking, micro-drilling, surface modification and thin film deposition. Laser precision engineering is built on the foundation of knowledge in the laser interactions with materials. With the strong research strength we have built, my team has left an indelible mark on the laser microprocessing and nanofabrication. (1) We have successfully developed laser cleaning techniques to remove contaminations (metallic particles, chemicals and dielectric particles) with different sizes ranging from a few um down to 50 nm in the form of particles, plate-like structures and thin films from various substrate surfaces (semiconductor, magnetic hard disk and sensors). (2) We have successfully developed laser singulation techniques to separate micro-device dies as small as 100~200 um at a substrate thickness of 100~200 um for both single-layer and multi-layer structures. (3) We have successfully developed wafer thinning techniques based on our fundamental research on the laser ablation in liquid. It promises great economic impact in wafer reclamation and solar cell recycling as a green manufacturing means. Laser ablation of solid materials in liquid is successfully applied to flexibly synthesize nano-materials for optical limiting etc. applications. (4) We are pioneering in sub-50 nm laser surface nano-structuring in ambient air. We have successfully developed laser/AFM process to achieve 10 nm resolution, fs laser/NSOM and laser/transparent particle processing to achieve 20 nm resolution and large-area periodic structures fabrication for plasmonic nanostructures and anti-reflection surfaces (with the broadband reflectivity down to 0.8%). To address the slow laser nanofabrication issue, we successfully developed laser micro-lens array (MLA) lithography for parallel laser direct writing. • Laser applications in Nanophotonics: Plasmonics, THz technology and Meta-materials: Ultrafast laser is a versatile tool to fabricate tiny structures on metallic thin films and glass substrate for nano-photonics applications due to the minimal heat affected zones and non-linear optical absorption effect. We investigated femtosecond (fs) laser interactions with polymers and successfully developed an fs laser MLA lithography technique and applied it to make large-area (cm2 scale) periodic structures for nano- plasmonic and meta-materials research. Various nano-structure sizes (50~500nm), geometries (nano-dots, nano-lines and nano-rods) and thin film combination (single metallic, bimetallic and metal-insulator-metal) were designed and fabricated to tune the surface plasmon resonance properties and nano-photonics structure optical properties. In these few years, my team won a generous research grant (S$2.5+M) from ASTAR to carry out the THz spectroscopy research. We have successfully applied our advanced laser precision engineering techniques to realize a few unique hybrid THz meta-materials from single layer, to multi-layer and to 3D meta-materials tube. We are furthering our research by applying exotic materials, such as phase change materials, to make active tunable meta-materials in order to address the critical issue of high loss in conventional meta-materials structures. • Optical diagnostics for real-time process monitoring: There are rich signals being generated during the laser interactions with materials, including audible acoustic waves, plasma, electric and magnetic signals. I conducted a detailed study of the laser ablation and its signal generation in my PhD research. Since then, I am applying optical signals acquisition and analyses to study the dynamic laser interactions with materials, especially at the early stage of laser ablation. Meanwhile, optical signal detection can be used as a process monitoring tool to control laser processes in real time. My team established the process control algorithms to monitor the laser cleaning and laser ablation. It can be coupled into advanced laser processing machines to enhance the performance of the laser precision engineering.
