Dr. Mohd Syamsul Nasyriq Samsol Baharin was one of the diamond and carbon related materials community, where he has been involved in the research of nano-electronics and power-electronics, developing carbon-based material devices including diamond for nanodevices, biosensors and power field effect transistors.

He is now a Senior Lecturer of Institute of Nano Optoelectronics Research and Technology (INOR), at Universiti Sains Malaysia. He received several invitations contributing to society by the annual invitations of several events hosted locally and internationally as an invited speaker for 13th New Diamond and Nano Carbon Conference (NDNC 2019), Taiwan, Invited Judge for National Nanotechnology Innovations 2018 (PIN 18) for MESTECC’s National Nanotechnology 2018 event, invited speaker for European Materials Research Fall Meeting (E-MRS 2018), Warszawa, Poland and invited speaker for MESTECC’s Nanotechnology Olympiad 2017, Malaysia.

He was formerly a Postdoctoral Researcher in Waseda University, Japan (2017-2018) worked on graphene and diamond as biosensor with the collaboration of AirMembrane Corp. Japan, AIST, Japan and Yokogawa Electric Corporation, Japan. The graphene and diamond-based biosensor was focused on the application of electrochemical pH sensor and estrogen (17β-estradiol) aptamer detection respectively.

His recent Ph.D thesis at Waseda University, Japan, (2014-2017) involved diamond and its possibilities as power devices. The investigations start with the single crystalline diamond rods and further investigate other diamond substrates such as polycrystalline and heteroepitaxial diamond substrates as power devices. He was recognized as the world record holder of highest breakdown voltage capability via the mechanical grade black polycrystalline diamond which is cost effective and suited for mass productions and studied the reliabilities of the polycrystalline diamond as power devices. His study was highlighted in Semiconductor Today Highlights (UK) “Black polycrystalline diamond transistors with high breakdown.” 25 November 2016.

Beforehand, as a Researcher at SIRIM Berhad (2010-2014), under the department of Industrial CI-Nanotechnology he was trained and experienced in several key aspects of research such as collaborations, networking, research grant proposition, management and milestone presentations, consulted and supervised technicians and industrial training students for process fabrications, parametric analyses data, technical support for process fabrications and characterizations, documentation standard procedures and specifications for design and practices, and R&D for commercialization and collaborations. He received the B.Eng. (Hons) and MSc. From Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP) and he was the recipient of Best Dissertation Award 2010 by Malaysia Solid State Science and Technology (MASS)
