Progress in solid state science, technology conducive to Nano research

on 07 Disember 2010.

KUCHING:  The advancement in solid state science and technology would be a fitting platform for the state to embark on a new era of Nano technology field research.

Although the implication of a widespread research in Nano technology is still hotly debated, Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) vice chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Khairuddin Abdul Hamid believes that a conference on solid state science and technology would be the proper avenue for researchers to exchange ideas and understand new technologies better.

Speaking at the opening of the ‘Third International Conference on Solid State Science and Technology 2010' (ICSSST2010) held at Hilton hotel here yesterday, Dr Khairuddin said: “Solid state science, as we all know, is the study of physical and chemical phenomena associated with an assembly of atoms in the solid phase.

“An example is the research to explain how, below a certain temperature, electrons in certain solid ceramics can move among atoms without meeting any electrical resistance.”

On the other hand, solid state technology is the method of manufacturing and systematically utilising solid materials by virtue of their electrical appliances, magnetic, optical or thermal properties in the fabrication of devices, primarily electronic, he explained.

One example he cited was the process of making silicon chips and using them in integrated circuits.

“We have seen how transistors and integrated circuits have changed our lives and our daily devices. I am confident that ICSSST2010 will address these issues pertaining to our daily lives and also resolving the global challenges that we are now facing and dedicate some of its deliberations to matters directly affecting the world that we live in,” he continued.

Meanwhile, a statement from Unimas stated that the two-day ICSSST2010 intended to be a platform for reviewing current research and technology, presentation of the latest discoveries and exchange of ideas among scientists and researchers as well as postgraduate students in the solid state science and technology field.

A total of 170 scientific papers in various fields of science and technology had been received and accepted for presentation at the conference. The conference was organised by Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) Faculty of Engineering in collaboration with Malaysian Solid State Science and Technology Society (MASS).

Also present were Unimas deputy vice chancellor (Research and Innovation) Prof Dr Peter Songan, Engineering Faculty dean Prof Dr Wan Hashim Wan Ibrahim, MASS president Prof Emeritus Dato Dr Muhamad Yahya and conference chairman Prof Dr Sinin Hamdan.

The conference was officiated by Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Dr George Chan.
