LKC FES academic wins two awards at IEEE ICT 2022

Lee Kong Chian Faculty of Engineering and Science academic Assoc Prof Ir Dr Chee Pei Song  won the Young Scientist Award and the Best Presentation Award at the 2022 IEEE 5th International Conference on Electronics Technology (IEEE ICET 2022). The IEEE ICET 2022 was organised by the Sichuan Institute of Electronics, The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, the Sichuan University, the Southwest Jiaotong University and the Singapore Institute of Electronics.

His research paper, titled Wearable Flexible Antenna for Microwave Wireless Power Transfer, was co-authored with Prof Ts Dr Lim Eng Hock. It studies the wireless power transfer for biomedical implantable devices at the near field region of 13.56 MHz. “We have successfully implemented the developed prototype in drug delivery applications. Currently, we are expanding the wireless power transfer technique to charge the wearable device in the far-field regions. The resonant frequencies of the wearable antenna are designed at 2.40 GHz and 5.20 GHz, which can be obtained from a commercialised WiFi modem. A proof-of-concept of the far-field wireless power transfer was demonstrated by successfully lighting an LED,” explained Dr Chee.

Dr Chee added, “This is a PhD work of an LKC FES student, Chang Xi Liang. Chang has done a tremendous job in designing the wireless power transfer module. In addition, I would also like to extend my sincere appreciation to Prof Lim for contributing to this project. We are also expanding our research team to work on a wireless power transfer project.” Interested candidates may contact Dr Chee Pei Song ( or Prof Ts Dr Lim Eng Hock ( to join the research team.

The Young Scientist Award aims to reward young scientists and engineers who show great promise in their field of study, with the hope that this will nurture the growth of science and technology in the region.
