Sha Shiong, NG received his B.Sc. (Hons) degree in Pure Physics, M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Solid State Physics (majoring in semiconductor studies) from Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), Malaysia. He served as a senior lecturer in the School of Physics at USM from November 2007 till April 2015. Now, he is attached to Institute of Nano Optoelectronics Research and Technology (INOR), USM. Dr. Ng was promoted to Associate Professor in September 2017. His fields of specialization include XRD, IR, Raman, UV-VIS-NIR, and PL characterizations of wide band gap semiconductor materials. He also actively engaged in the researches of (1) III-nitrides based LEDs and solar cells, (2) growth of III-nitrides, metal oxides, and chalcogenide materials, (3) fabrication and characterization of porous/nanostructure thin films, and (4) surface phonon polariton of III-nitrides. Dr. Ng has published more than 150 research papers in Scopus/ISI-indexed journals (h-index = 17; Scopus). Besides, he has filed one patent and published two monographs. At present, Dr. Ng was the principal investigator for 2 international, 5 national, and 5 university research grants. In addition, he was the co-researcher for 16 research grants. Dr. Ng has received various awards for excellent research. These include the Best Thesis Award, the Best Postgraduate Student Award, the Sanggar Sanjung Awards for publication category. In year 2012, one of his research grants funded under Fundamental Research Grant Scheme has been selected and awarded as the Best Research Project (under Pure Science category) by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia. Currently, Dr. Ng has 2 PhD students under his main supervision. Since 2007, 4 PhD and 5 MSc students have successfully graduated under his main supervision. Presently, Dr. Ng is a member of Materials Research Society, Optical Society of America, The Society for Applied Spectroscopy and SPIE. He is also a life member of The Malaysian Solid State Science & Technology Society and Malaysian Institute of Physics. Since 2008, he was served as reviewer for many reputable journals and have reviewed more than 30 manuscripts.
