In this episode of #SUTDexplains, Associate Professor Robert Simpson takes us through the state of the art facilities of ACTAlab at SUTD, where researchers, students and faculty work closely together to design functional materials for photonics, electronics, and data storage. The lab also develops efficient methods to discover, design and optimise materials such as chalcogenides. For more information on ACTAlab, click here: https://people.sutd.edu.sg/~robert_simpson/
