MEDIA RELEASE - Creating a layer of water for a clearer view
June 14 - IMRE scientists invented a new permanent surface coating, CleanClear, which prevents fogging on both glass and plastic surfaces by creating a layer of water. Using a new superhydrophilic coating technology, the durable and ceramic coating attracts water instead of repelling it, for a better, clearer view.

ACHIEVEMENTS - IMRE signs Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with NERC-CM and JNMIP
Mar 14 - IMRE signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the National Engineering Research Centre for Colloidal Materials (NERC-CM) of Shandong University, China, and the Jinan New Materials Industrial Park (JNMIP), China during a jointly organised IMRE-Shandong University "Materials for New Business Opportunities" workshop.

MEDIA RELEASE - A*STAR’S IMRE ties up with LION Corporation for more environmentally-friendly household products
May 14 - A*STAR scientists and LION Corporation are using a multi-purpose, highly customisable molecule and all natural material formulations to develop products that keep laundry smelling fresh and kill bacteria, without relying on chemical biocides that are found in some current household products.

AWARDS - Startup Asia Singapore 2014
Apr 14 - IMRE scientist Dr Shah Kwok Wei won the ‘Most Attractive for Investment’ and ‘Most Promising Idea’ awards at the Startup Asia Singapore 2014 for his work on M-Kool, a cooling pad that can be used in fabrics to help regulate body temperature and keep the wearer cool.

AWARDS - Tan Kah Kee Young Inventors' 2014 Award
Apr 14 - Dr Yap Fung Ling was awarded the distinguised Tan Kah Kee Young Inventors' 2014 Award (Silver) for her work on the development of a cost effective method for fabrication of high performance Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) substrates.

Welcome to IMRE

The Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) is a research institute of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research  (A*STAR). The Institute has capabilities in materials analysis & characterisation, design & growth, patterning & fabrication, and synthesis & integration. IMRE also focuses on applications of materials through a number of speciality laboratories and programmes. These include consumer care technology, sensors & transducers, advanced energy storage, molecular materials, bioinspired materials, soft surfaces and interfaces, plasmonics and semiconductor heterostructures, advanced porous materials and nanocomposites. We house a range of state-of-the-art equipment for materials research including development, processing and characterisation. We collaborate actively with other research institutes, universities, public bodies, and a wide spectrum of industrial companies, both globally and locally. Our initiatives in various public-private consortia and an industry-themed prototyping foundry help promote the adoption of materials-based technologies by companies.
